Avis sur l’album

With "Land of 1000 Dances (Naa, Na, Na, Na, Naa)," L.A.'s Cannibal & the Headhunters had one of the great party hits of the '60s.

The only fault with the album is that the group never followed it up.

Founded by Frankie Garcia — who reportedly earned his nickname "Cannibal" as a boy when he bit an opponent during a fight — with Robert Jaramillo and Joe Jaramillo of East L.A. in the mid-'60s, the group grew out of a number of earlier...
