This was released on CD as Horns in the Night. The CD lists 10 tracks (as shown above), but only contains 9. Track 6, El ritmo de la rumba, is not included on the CD. We've never seen the vinyl LP and got the LD number from a German radio playlist.

This album, in our opinion, is significantly better than the first 440 album and also is something of a missing link in the "roots of timba", especially from a songwriting and harmonic point of view. The musicianship is also extraordinary. If you know anything about the vinyl LP or any other historical details about this group, please write in.

Update: Gabriel of Yemayá's Verse sent us photos of the LP and we've been able to add all the composers and arrangers. Note that the RMM CD reissue contains one additional track not on the original vinyl.
