Champagne - Eddie Palmieri & His Orchestra

Produced by Pancho Cristal

Champange (1968) is a Fantastic Album. The African Twist sung by Cynthia Ellis is a Dance Floor Classic. Aye Que Rico, Palo De Mango and Cinturita are perfection. Si Las Nenas Me Dejan, Que is simply beautiful.

The sleeve notes boast "the excitement and fun that the Album has created among hardcore musicians and disc jockeys."

It is easy to see why when you listen to such perfection.

Side A

1. Aye Que Rico
2. Delirio/Here's That Rainy Day
3. Cintura
4. Busca Lo Tuyo

Side B

1. The African Twist
2. Palo De mango
3. Si Las Nenas Me Dejan, Que
