More gold from the ever expanding, worldly catalogue of Honest Jons. As ever presented in a pristine, beautifully designed gatefold sleeve. These records are really something to own and cherish. Highly Recommended! 

Impatiently returning to the golden age of Ecuadorian musica national, this second round of retrievals is more of a selectors’ affair: less reverent, more free-flowing, with more twists and turns. There is no let-up in musical quality, maintaining the same judicious, heart-piercing balance between emotional desolation and dignified endurance, the same bitter-sweet play between affective excess and musical sublimity.
