Tito Rodriguez In Puerto Azul, Venezuela
In Puerto Azul, Venezuela
Cover designed by Norman Art Studio, Chicago
United Artist Records UAS 6308
Available from online vendors so I will not be posting a sample.
From the back cover: This album featured Tito and the boys at their best, playing tunes they performed at the Carcass Carnival (one of South America's pre-Lenten festivals, invitation only). Rodriguez's band won "most popular".
From Billboard - November 30, 1963: Rodriquez has had a number of sets on the UA label, all of which have created a sales stir. This latest program is a duplication of that performance by the band last year in a Venezuela competition of 16 prominent Latin orks, a competition won by this very group. Most selections are smooth and danceable, with vocals, and are nicely paced as to tempo. Mambos, pachanges, cha chas and boleros are included.
