Come On And Do The Congas


From Cuba out of New York City baby - another from an ancient cassette.

No school like the old school, dos cervezas por favor.

Daniel Ponce - 'Oromí ' (1987)

  5. PS: This is a very stretchy track. You think you've got it predicted, but then 3/4 in there's a vocal bit, and then it all sort of bounces back on itself again, with rhythm. I like all that. And the congas, obvs.

  7. Was he good when he upset Madge and she wrote those songs about it? I listened to 'Like A Prayer' on a tape on a coach round the Amalfi Coast once and it was mighty fine, but possibly I was at an impressionable age.

    The Amalfi Coast meanwhile was clogged with coaches, mostly filled with fat Germans. This made it unpleasant.

  8. The coach-clogging, not the fat Germans. That info was incidental.
