It took a while, ten years in fact, before the music, mood and majesty of the mambo entered the mainstream. Cuban bandleader Perez Prado first introduced the dance at La Tropicana night-club in Havana, and through a natural and gradual process the message quickly spread. Taking its name from a variety of sources including a Haitian voodoo priestess, the mambo was a flamboyant form of self-expression that blended rhythmic swing with ethnic canción. In 1954 the Zeitgeist began to infiltrate the pop scene, and the nation's best-sellers were suddenly blessed with a string of self-evident song titles - 'Mambo Italiano', 'Papa Loves Mambo' and 'They Were Doin' The Mambo'. Now, for the first time ever, all of the elements of this fascinating music have been brought together by compiler Stuart Colman for the Fantastic Voyage 180 gram "Mambo in the Mainstream". One listen and the feel good factor will ascend to an all-time high.
