Various - Si, Para Usted: The Funky Beats of Revolutionary Cuba Volume 1



Si Para Usted Vol 1
Various - Si, Para Usted: The Funky Beats of Revolutionary Cuba Volume 1
(CD/Digital) Waxing Deep WAX002, 2006

For years, Waxing Deep listeners have asked us about the Cuban music we love to play on the show. Unfortunately, outside of the Waxing Deep archive, most of our favourite Cuban tracks are virtually unobtainable. Cuban recordings were never widely distributed beyond (and frequently within) Cuba and few have ever been reissued. Committed as Waxing Deep is to sharing good music, we took it upon ourselves to provide a solution! We proudly announce Si, Para Usted: The Funky Beats of Revolutionary Cuba, a fully-licensed compilation of Cuban funk, jazz, son, beat, afro, and soul from the 70s and early 80s. Almost all the tracks have been lovingly remastered from the original tapes and, given the shoddiness of Cuban vinyl, this means the music has literally never sounded this good. Aside from superb music, the CD includes full liner notes.
