Most of Desi Arnaz (and Ricky Ricardo)'s most loved songs are assembled on this disc, all of them recorded by RCA Victor a few years before the debonair Mr. Ricardo ever set foot in any of our livingrooms... Included are many of the upbeat "fun" numbers later used on "I Love Lucy" -- things like "Cuban Pete," "In Santiago Chile," "Cuban Cabby" and (our favorite) "The Straw Hat Song."
But also on this nicely-produced compilation are Desi and Ricky's signature song, "Babalu," the beautiful "Made for Each Other" and the rousing "El Cumbanchero."
There are 20 numbers in all -- something for every taste!
The CD can be purchased in most record stores, or on line at:
