Cha Cha Cha - Merengues And Mambos

Cha Cha Cha
Merengue & Mambos
Pupi Lopez And His Orchestra
Design Records/Spectrum/Pickwick SDLP 31

Doing a search for Pupi Lopez returns almost no information. There is no information on the back cover. Songs from this LP are available by the download on iTunes, so I'm assuming someone renewed the copyright at some point.

This is a great space age Cha Cha record on a budget label. A number of tracks rise above the norm with the addition of clarinet, flute and accordion flourishes.

  1. OOOH lovely cover! I saw this name the other day and were intrigued. Now I wish I had grabbed it. PUPI, with a name like that we should never pass it by.


Howdy! Thanks for leaving your thoughts!
