Hecho en Cuba, Vol. 3

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
The success of the Buena Vista Social Club movie led to the revival of the careers of several veteran Cuban singers and musicians. The three-volume Hecho en Cuba mostly features the same elderly musicians but its packaging is a bit of a nightmare.
