Note that the personnel list on this CD is wrong! They re-used the 1988 list. In fact, the original 440 was a spinoff from Orquesta Revé and had several very interesting members:

Germán Velazco - sax (later went to Irakere and NG La Banda
Pepe Maza - voice (Michel's papá)
Armando Gola, Sr. (aka "Andy", founder of Colé Colé)
___ Bolaños - sax (later played with Issac)
