Adilia Castillo - Mi Recuerdo
I found this little gem in the furthest, darkest corner of a dingy record store and for some unknown reason, I was just drawn to it. The moment I laid eyes on Adilia's fantastic get-up, I knew I had to have this. And it's a damn good thing, too, because when I got home and threw it on, I was enchanted by "la voz de Adilia Castillo." El Llano Castillo is some old Venezuelan record that has lots of traditional Spanish sounding instruments and is in surprisingly high fidelity for such an ancient piece of wax. Don't worry, though, it still sounds wicked old. Some good times are assured to be had with this record, and if you have any Spanish friends, ask them to do a little Spanish dance when you throw this on at your next fiesta.
Also, I guess this is super rare. Not like "super valuable" or anything, just like I can't find even the smallest bit of info on this thing. If you know anything about this particular record, feel free to comment.
Yours thanks to the Fires of Media.
