Excellent compilation in two discs, released along with Pop and Rock magazine ( the most long-standing Greek monthly music magazine) A melt of latin psychedelic and jazz rock featuring some valuable names like Gerald Wilson, Santana, Madrill among others.
From 1962's latin jazzy tune "Viva Tirado" and a 1966 version of "Evil Ways" to an early nineties live rendition of "Black Magic Woman / Gypsy Queen" by Santana (although it looks to me like an '80's version, even if it's credited as 1993). Great digi pack covers in a vinyl feel completes the package.
