I bought this album on vinyl when it was first released [1972].
"Dos" is Malo's second album and has less vocal content than their brilliant first album titled "Malo" [which I also highly recommend], but once again Malo prove what fine musicians they are with the amazing sounds of the Spanish trumpet often in the lead and, as always with Malo, there is an ensemble of Latin percussion. Each of the six long tracks provides intense listening, if you can manage to sit still that is, many of the rhythms and beats invite body movement.
The opening track "Momotombo" sets the pace of the whole album with almost every instrument & certainly every band member giving it their all, followed by the lively "Oye Mama", about as Latin American as you can get. Somewhere on a Malo album there has to be a love song & "I'm for Real" says it 'nicely', then the hauntingly beautiful flute piece "Midnight Thoughts" gives us a special treat. The tribal sounding chant "Hela" takes us back to the primitive, before the final nine & a half minute crescendo "Latin Bugaloo" sums up all this band are about.
If you are already into Malo and you like to collect original albums you won't go wrong adding this one to your CD library. The musicianship is remarkable. I can't praise it enough.

Malo's self titled debut LP was a pretty good success with the hit single "Suaveceito" and is easily available on CD and not that hard to find. "Dos" was the followup album and in comparision to the earlier record, it was a relative flop with no hit singles or big radio airplay. That's a shame as it is a really strong record from start to finish. Jorge Santana, brother of Carlos, was still with the band and it does resemble some of his brother's early works. This record rocks a bit more than "Malo" and it is one of those great albums that gor lost in the shuffle when it was released.
As a sidenote, the band would continue to release further albums, Santana and others would leave the band, and there are other hard to find albums from Malo. Their first 2 are their best albums.

Another great album by Malo they were at their best! Malo Dos kept the latin sound alive! Very talent group of musicians and their amazes me even now. Some albums put out one or two good songs and the rest are just there taking up time, this album is good from first to last. I enjoyed it in the seventies and I enjoy it now ( goes to show I was paying attention)! Anyone looking for that latin rock sound and awsome horn section and not to mention the rythm section this is it! Do It Man!
