Recorded in 1957, this is incredible.

It's good to know what this tune is called. It does invoke memories of BBC radio bands providing the interval music on so many entertainment shows. I thought it was Cuban, but apparently Puerto Rican - a real classic

I think they were a New York based band. What amazes me is the 12 string electric guitar playing by Arsenio Rodriguez. I didn't think anyone was playing lead guitar on a 12 string back in 1957.

That was great Adam, thanks. I promise not to make any sarcastic remarks about pre dating the Byrds (12 string) by a decade!

Is that not a Cuban tres he is playing rather than a 12 string?

Aaaah! That explains it. Thank you (almost a year late)
