Man, it's time to bolt down the furniture and kick back the rugs. This is no time to be a drag -- let down your hair, roll up those trousers and start swingin'! This is the righteous stuff for all you jazzbos -- mambo for cats --and, man, if you're not a jumpin', rockin', screamin' cat by the time this record ends, there's just no hope-- you're dead. We've assembled just about every fast-movin' mambo outfit in the game, lighted a fire under their respective music stands and, brother, the results are absolutely the livin' end. They just have to be, for this is music that moves and moves and never gives up -- it's the greatest, man; it's the most frantic, it's the hippest! And any of you deluded hipsters who thought the Latins could play nothing but guitars are sure livin' somewhere in the middle ages. Every tune we're pushin' at you here is a real jazz standard, most of them the kind that the boys have been blowin' around in circles since 'ole Satchmo was in knee pants. Finally available again, ahead of the Jim Flora boxset (a collection of all the albums Flora designed, from the 40's to the 60's),- the sensational RCA Victor Mambo compilation, featuring the cream of the the Mambo world... these recordings are digitally remastered to the best sound quality you can get and released on limited 140g vinyl... PLAY LOUD & ENJOY....!
