ALEGRE VERSUS TICO - THE BIG GUNDOWN

















Alegre go head to head with Tico on my latin mash up compiled from the 60s and early 70's output of these great labels- who will win ?
Only YOU can decide !
From The Alegre All Stars to the Brothers Palmieri - From Tito Puente to Mauricio Smith and more.
It's all killer no filler - just hard core!

If you would like any more info about the tracks leave a comment in the box as usual.

Great post as usual.
Thank you so much for it as well as all the others.
The track called Ponce_Kako_Alegre is corrupted but it can easily be repaired. For those who do not know the procedure to follow, just double left click on the WinRar folder then double left click on the Latino_Mash_Up folder and you can see the various files. Select the corrupted file and right click on it. In the menu that appears select "Repair" (Alt+R) and left click on it. You then obtain a window where you have to select a button "treat the corrupted file as RAR" and then OK. In the next window wait until the job is done and when "done" appears, close.
Go back to the folder where your original WinRar folder was. You must have a second RAR folder called "fixed. LATINO_MASH_UP". You may then do the usual extraction.
Just one more thing,; in the rar folder there seems to be some JPEGs but there is nothing in the files.
Some kind of artwork, if any, would be very much appreciated.
Thanks an awful lot.

The method to fix the corrupted file described above appears to be for a pc. Does anyone know how to do this with a Mac?
