This is a superbly packaged and collated, in depth introduction to classic 60's/ 70's/ 80's Colombian dance music and highly recommended for anyone who has any interest in Latin music and Afro Beat. Available in double CD or 2 x double vinyl. Many of the tracks are available for the first time.

For a trip to the sea, sun and carnival atmosphere of Colombia's Caribbean coast, short of getting on a plane this is the next best experience.

Since it arrived it has been played almost continuously, each time a new favourite track emerging. The quality of recordings is generally excellent and the 60 page booklet is an interesting and very informative addition to a wonderful collection of great music.

Mostly good with a few 'duffers del ritmo' included that must have been recorded during that horrendously grotty, cheap and commercially talentless, musical period of the mid 70s when the whole world was deluged in yucky disco-esque throwaway nonsense. A period in music that I refer to as ' the gaudy years' and trash ruled the roost. Disregarding the aforementioned grot this is an album of catchy columbian rhythms that is worth it's salt. My advice is to download the whole thing, then weed out the few pieces of garbage and delete them. Then you have an album to enjoy.

If you are a lover of latin type music, this is for you, I heard a track, Santana something or other, on Jazzfm, hooked. Bought the CD and played it about 4 times straight away. It may not strike you if you aren't into music full stop, if you like the latin then buy it and enjoy it. It's top toons.

This is great music but it does take time to grow on you and you have to be in the right mood for this type of music ,once you are in the mood you start to hear the layers of the different influences each instrument has

I bought the CD as I thought it was the usual Latin Colombian music with a bit of the African beat, but the medley of songs has very strong African rhythmic soulful influences. It is for listening rather than for dancing to.....
