Miami Sound Machine - Conga 12" - 1986
I never was into Miami Sound Machine or Gloria Estefan as a kid. Too mainstream and poppy for my tastes back then. When I was in college, though Gloria released Abriendo Puertas in 1995. I heard it in a record store and had to ask what the album was. I instantly bought it and fell in love with it. Well, that helped open my mind to her earlier mainstream pop work. And now that I'm a complete sucker for just about everything 80's this one is a classic, a great mixture of American pop and Latin rhythms. Here you get an extended dance mix and an instrumental version.
