Editor's note: according to the Third Island blog this album was also recorded in stereo with entirely different versions of these fine songs. I have only heard about three of four of these percussion type albums and all have been brilliant. A good mix of Latin selections with standard American fare mixed in for a well-rounded meal of mixed pleasures. The sound seems exemplary to me as well as many of the Hi-Fi LPs do. Remind me not to hold onto these percussers for 6 mos. before posting!
