TITO PUENTE - PUENTE IN PERCUSSION




















I ripped this last week in WAV format as a favour for someone who had a big influence on my record buying many years ago.I'd forgotten just how good it is so I figured I ought to stick it up here again.

Tito is joined by Willie Bobo,Patato Valdez and Mongo Santamaria on this super heavyweight percussion rinse out from 1956 and it really rocks.Check out the pneumatic drill on the cover to get an idea of what a banging set of percussion workouts this is.

Hey Matey,

i was that soldier who asked for this..

What a great album, I got to buy it again! My original is so scratched to pieces. I remember playing it at the electric ballroom (and other places). People went mad to it.

"Stick on Bongo" was the big tune remember you spinning it at the Ballroom and Tim Morris dropping it in at Bantus and The Cutting Edge-must've been about 1982/3?
Coincidentally I'm just about to drive down to Sussex and see Sheldon (Cutting Edge)to rinse out a few golden oldies and get mullahed.
Viva Puente!!!
