Go Latino and say si si. Hot rhythm and luring bright and colorful Caribbean cruise posters. I wish I was there.

Patrick, Corrie, Barbara! Ofcourse, you are right. "Para Vigo me voy"... -it's how it should be written. There's a mistake on Telefeunken label and I copied it :-(( Sorry. To add a couple of details - English text was written by Al Stillman and the song was published by Ernesto Lecuona in 1935. In YT you can find original recording by Lecuona Cuban Boys.

I can't recall when I last listened to this great song. I thought the rhythm was a rumba, but I must bow to greater knowledge . This is a fine rendition of this number and the visuals are grand.
I have British coins which are minted from silver bullion "acquired" from the Spanish at Vigo !
Thank you for sharing another great post. Much appreciated.
