I just picked up a "signed" album by Yma. Anyone have a copy of her sig so I can verify it?

And in a strange twist to the Yma topic... Has anyone listened to that 60's "Son's of Yma" Peruvian garage band album?
Was thinking of getting a copy.

I've heard the Sons of Yma album. It's a compilation of 60's garage bands from Peru.
Some titles are funny but lots have a really bad sound (as you can imagine 60's garage peruvian albums).
It's nothing compares to Yma... really much more Punk stuff

I really like Yma too, but I recently picked up one of her records at a garage sale that left me somewhat,, puzzled? The album is called "Miracles" circa 1972. All of the tracks but one are by Les Baxter, which had me very excited, that is,, until the needle dropped. The music is some weird jazz-rock fusion band, and Yma for the most part goes la la la over the top of it. I just put it on again, just to make sure I wasn't in a bad mood or too drunk to really appreciate the first listen,, and nope, this record, in my humble opinion is awful! I don't mean to offend any Yma Sumac fans. Like I said I really like her (earlier) stuff. Does anyone else have this record? Am I insane, or is it really that bad?

For info. on Baxter and Yma Sumac go here and read the interview with Les before he passed away.

As for Afro-Cuban music, Perez Prado's "Voodoo Suite" just showed up in my mailbox... Sounds like it's time for a Cuba Libre!

About Sons of Yma, I love that album. Here is a review, and the cover looks like this:



Not at all tiki or exotica or Yma Sumac related though.

ARTHUR LYMAN:
Aphrodisia
The shadow of Your Smile
LES BAXTER:
Jewels of the Sea
Caribbean Moonlight
Ritual ot the Savage (not in the greatest condition, but will do till I can upgrade)

Ferrante&Teicher-Pianos in Paradise
Rene Paulo Trio-Black Coral (cool cover)
Guy Warren-African Drums (sweet cover)
Exciting VooDoo (is this afro-cuban)
Music of the Maori (another great cover)
Congo Percussion
Polynesian Percussion
Plus 6 more I'm not sure about, they may suck. Unfortunately my player quit working yesterday. Need to take her apart tonight. Someone out there let me know what are some good Afro-Cuban Albums.
