Perez Prado albums

He was the king of the mambo, by far the most popular Latin bandleader in the 1950’s and 1960’s. He made the sound booming and explosive with his hits like Mambo # 5, Mambo #8, Cherry Pink And Apple Blossom White and some tracks he did with Beny More as a vocalist: Pachito E-Che, Babaratiri and Anabacoa. Although Perez Prado was born in Havana in 1916, he became enormously popular in Mexico in the 1940’s and later in the USA where he became a key figure for Latin dance music on the RCA label where most of his biggest records were issued. His sound was very loud like massive thunder with a lot of percussion and pumping trumpets. In the many breaks Perez used his voice to give extra fire to the music with words like haa!! or ugh!!  This was music to dance to if you wanted or not.
