Tito Puente: Mambos Vol.3, 1952 Tico

Spent two hours crate digging in a basement in upstate NY and finally came across this gem. It's a very early release on the Tico label featuring brilliant rhythm spiced with tasty horns. Sounds as fresh today as it did in 1952. And the cover is three color printing with a varnish hit over the black, which is a long way of saying "delicious".
