An all-vinyl set of cover songs! Hear classics written by The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Temptations, Otis Redding, Bob Dylan, etc performed here by Eric Burdon War, Bo Diddley, The Ohio Players, Maceo Parker, Sly Stone, and others…
The first ½ hour includes music from Argentina and Bolivia. The second ½ hour presents some examples of Latin American “valses”. The third ½ hour includes music from Peru and Ecuador. The segment dedicated to Spanish language literature presents “Desnudo rojo,” a short story by the Mexican writer Mauricio Molina.
Check out the three non-Jamaican ska oldies in the first hour… I even found one from Holland in mixed English/Dutch, and another one’s an Italian entry. The back-to-school-spirited set began with one each by Desmond Dekker and Justin Hinds, Labour for Learning and Teach the Youth. The Specials announced recess with Enjoy Yourself, and Donatella did just that. So did we!
In Sherwood’s Fabulous Flying Party Palace, Benny Velarde was Cool doing the Wobble-Cha, Anna Valentino was On a Tropical Island, and La Lupe had a whale of a Fever! From Bobby Summers’ Pad you could spy The Chantays sailing The Wayward Nile, and Russ Garcia witnessed the Birth Of A Planet! Back on the bridge, the Rocket Ship visited a Ska Zoo, Maria Visconti sang about her Boy Lollipop and Prince Buster took a Trip To Mars. Blast off!
