5.0 out of 5 stars Very well missed! (Revised) September 15, 2008
Format:Audio CD
What a joy in hearing the music of the legendary Mambo king Doñ Dámaso Pérez Prado when growing up in the 60's. Today's Latin instrumental music pales in comparison to the era of natural acoustic rhythm sections of those days.

My favorite Mambo songs are: (the famous) "Lupita," (the organist at the Mets Shea Stadium would occasionally play) "Patricia," "Mambo #8," "Mambo #5," (the ever so romantic ballad - probably most people would remember the movie "Mambo Kings" when Antonio Banderas did the trumpet solo piece) "María Bonita," "Norma La de Guadalajara," (a unique sound using a harpsichord and played in a baroque classic sound) "Mambo Barroco," (Calípso rhythm...mmm so tantalizing) "Mambo del Taconazo," "Rico, Caliente y Sabroso," "Que Rico Mambo," (Jazzy Latin flairs) "Mambo en Sax," "Corazón de Melón," "Pachito E'Che," and to tell you the truth... many more songs on this 28-track, two-compact disc package.

The collection of gold hits by the late great Mambo king is memorable and well worth the price. The songs are well missed. But only if you don't have this fine work of art on CD.

One last note, my inspiration Erroll Garner and Pérez Prado occasionally exchanged influence on one another. When you listen carefully to the two of them playing (of course on CD, because they are the legendary great instrumentalists), you will note that both men appears to have two left hands. But the case with Prado, he has two left hands and two right hands!! The speed and timing of his playing was awesome! (See the episodes of I Love Lucy ... Ricky Ricardo orchestra announced a surprise guest to the program...probably in the mid 1950's.
