    Speaking of awesome Celia songs, one of the instructors at the last congress I went to (Jose Diaz) played this killer tune:


    I totally fell in love and had it glued to my brain ever since. Recently visited Kuala Lumpur and requested the song from the DJ. He looked at me funny and said sure, he'd play it. After he played it and me and my gf had an awesome dance to it (with applause from the locals :) ), I went to thank the DJ for playing it. He had a tear in his eye as he said that was one of his favorite tunes, but unfortunately the local dancers didn't appreciate that style of salsa so he rarely played something like it. Made my day finding someone like that in Kuala Lumpur!

    I also DJ. This is a tremendous song with poor audio - simply because it's obviously early Cecelia Cruz. DJ's who are critical of their systems audio (like me) probably would pass on this song because of that, and it looks like she never did it later when the recordings got better. So, I'll jump head first into this - as dancers, how important is the quality of the recording? Please remember, us poor DJ's are usually playing music for the whole room, not necessarily just the dancers.

    50s/60s tunes have a certain quality that makes up for the audio shortcomings. (Of course, some have more audio shortcomings than others.) I've played plenty of 50s/60s tunes over the years, even to casino audiences, and in moderation the right tunes never fail to keep the dancefloor burning.

    Agree with DJ Yuca. The audio is definitely poor in the versions I've heard, but ime most dancers aren't too critical of audio quality (obv depending on the venue). Audophile DJs should probably keep that in mind :) But downloaded MP3s from youtoobz is still a no go :mad: :mad:

    Anybody know if there actually is a better sounding version of Cecelia Cruz's Poco a Poco ? I'm all ears, as they say!
