5.0 out of 5 stars Take your hat off!, 4 Oct. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panama!: Latin, Calypso and Funk On the Isthmus (Audio CD)
This cracking little compilation of Panamanian tunes will surpirse and excite you from the skipping calaypso rhythm of Los Exagerados's "Panama esta bueno," right down to the quirky, swinging Lord Cobra with his spoken word tale,"recombey."
OK many of the sounds you'd typically associate with Central America can be found on here. Pay attention to the soul lament of Freddy y sus Afro Latinos on,"Maltrato," and the infectious, cumbia spiced,"Viva Panama." But I certainly wasn't excpecting to find the stylish, feet-tapping jazz of, "Soy solo para ti," or the all-out funk rhythm of,"Exciters theme." That is essentially the recipe of this record; a sublime hotch-potch of rarities that reflect the richness of musical styles around in Panama in the mid-sixties.
It's all insanely danceable. I love the manic bassline of the busy,"Descarga Tentación," and the quite sumptuous soul of Los Mozambiques's, "Viva Tirado."
While a lot of these kind of compilations have been crawling out of the woodwork recently I really recommend this as worth getting your hands on. It will have you longing for long summer nights by the barbecue.
Volume two anyone?
