The journey of Latin American artists from the '60s and '70s with a Jamaican style has a new stop: Latinameriska's fourth volume. And even though it may sound like a cliché we Gran Quilombo Discos would like to say this is the best installment of the series without a doubt. Here's why: You'll get to learn about unknown bands (from out of the Jamaican scene like Los Creyentes De B.C. or studio ones like The Stars), get almost impossible to find tunes (from Rosario or Los Costeños) or listen to covers as good as the original (hurray for Los Robbin's). Or with sounds that enrich the cover (those amazing Calypso touches of René Santos or the cumbia flavor of Carmen Rivero). The richness of "Latin Jamaica" has no limits, and from north-to-south and east-to-west the treasure chest keeps growing with gems of all kinds. These precious stones are all different and all highly valuable -- from Jamaican beat to early reggae or calypso -- with covers that range not only from Jamaican scene classics to jazz and soul. With such good raw materials and the label's culinary expertise, it was impossible not to cook a delicatessen to be consumed with the ears. And once again, there's a ghost track at the end, from Panamá this time and giving an Antillean flavor to another Jamaican classic. Enjoy this new installment and be calm, it won't be the last one! Also features Hugo Blanco, Su Arpa Viajera Y Su Conjunto, Julián Ber't, Carmen Rivero Y Su Conjunto, René Santos Y Sus Estrellas, Roberto Delgado And His Orchestra, Ely Combo, Las Cuatro Monedas, Los Yorsy's, and As Exorcistas.
