An album I have great fondness for, since it was one of the first really interesting albums I picked up when I was first getting into interesting 50s/60s records. I remember the reluctance of the guy in the Oxfam shop when he was selling it to me. Anyway, it's a superbly atmospheric journey through some Latin American standards, with really cool thick percussion parts. Highlights are 'Isle of Capri', 'Perfidia', 'Jungle Drums' (a big personal favorite) and 'Anna'.
