124 ... I've also recently added "To Make You Feel My Love" to my playlist, along with an ALABAMA song Gary D introduced me to: "Feels So Right"
I appreciate the traditional Spanish version of El Cumbachero by Puerto Rican composer Rafael Hernandez Marin, yet interestingly enough, another rendition I also like is the rock guitar version that Finnish band, Topi Sorsakosiki & the Agents did back in 1984. Thanks to my Synthzone finnish buddy Heikki (aka: the Wolf) for introducing me to this band and Finnish Iskelma music in general.
Hey man, damn straight El Cumba performed Agents style is great, we play it on every gig. Never heard this live version though, thanks for the share.
How do ya say there, fruity?

Tony...nice mellow voice. Guys like you are part of the reason I really don't like to sing!
R. (Do play Al Di La on a mandolin, if that counts! First time was on a bet. Restaurant owner bet me $200.00 I couldn't play it on mandolin the next night. I bought a mandolin for $140.00, learned the tune on the way up to the gig (my partner drove)...played the tune....collected $200.00..went back to the store to pay for the mandolin the next day...ended my mandolin career immediately LOL).
