Original Rumbas

pure magic I found at the library. when I checked on Amazon of course it is out of print. having returned the disc a long time ago, and not finding much information online, all I'm pretty certain is that a lot or all of this is Cuban in origin, and recorded sometime in the early 1930s.

the collection starts off nice enough, with a couple of straight dance numbers, but soon a special sound emerges, where the mood, although on the surface the same kind of easy-going atmosphere, becomes more complex... and like all great party music, a lot more is carefully molded into the music than a simple good time. I point you to track 5, "Tabou" by the Leguona Cuban Boys - what is going on here? a particular sense of melody and rhythm that I've never heard anywhere else... many gems are hidden in the rest of the album, and there is a mysterious mood which pervades through out... I wrote some stuff but deleted it, because my words are awkward, entirely insufficient, and I do not wish to impose my subjective interpretation of these tunes and this sound onto you. enjoy.

OOOOO-kay.... is that a random crazy or do I need to turn on the word verification thingie? what do you guys think?

Take i t from someone who knows: You NEED to turn on the verification I'm afraid mate. A simple check is to hover over the posters name..If it leads to some non descript website then its a spammer, whatever crap they post(sometimes it seems so convincing like they really did read your site). Also, don't bother actually visiting the sites you find in some posts as they are a lot likely to have instant virus/spyware installations on your PC.
(Not mine of course cos' I have a triple or quadruple -I forget layer of armoury between this machine's files and the www.
anyway USE THE VERIFICATION NOW!
And..

Cheers

Ok, Cf: your mastery of musiclove _li_ be in full effect. Only recently got on the musikblog train, and have yet to give back (been P2P'n for years, track rekkid there is better). I LOVE THIS FORMAT. I think it addresses the info-overkill illusory-plentitude I think (hopefully not in stealth-consrvtv way) is Super Serious Problem for ethics, aesthetics, politics alike, and musik not the least important in _any_ of these rivers. Apologies for the indulgence, though, on to the blessing: you have dropped Dope Dope Dope science consistently on this blog, easily one of my very favorites, for reasons of care and diversity, not least....but _this_, this Rhumba Goodness....my gods it's the stuff. You've made my day at least a few times now, but this is Habit Forming. Thanks for your generosity and smart words and audibility/gratitude on the SFRP and blog-nation. I suppose first-time verbiage can be pardoned...I'm counting on it....keep it up, Chef Ding: let the hacks and connoissewers BECOME ONE ANOTHER: the love of this gift-net is the Good itself....

Dear Way, thank you so much for your warm and kind words!

and so glad these old time rumba sounds are finding new ears... would be a sad thing for such enchanting moments to be lost in time... like... tears... in the rain...

:)

I will try to re-up this sometime in the near future...
