A great re-packaged offering giving the listener 44 songs. "The Cuban Boy "while not quite as sharp as the original still delivers. Salsa with a hint of Welk is how I would best describe the overall feel. I asked Vern Collins once why the slower pace on several of the numbers and Vern shrugged and admitted "Frank was in one of his tinkering stages playing around with different meters ". Vern also said the band was a little spent after a tour of the Netherlands where the string section got caught up in there usual mischievous behavior !!
