                                 Release Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You can never have too many timbale solos in your record collection, I always 
say.  Here's an earlier one of Tito's.  4.8 stars on Discogs.  Might do several 
of his.  Recording quality on this one doesn't seem to pop for some reason.  
Tito should really pop and this just seems muted to me.  Might be from lousy 
digital mastering, I dunno. Judging from the .wav signatures I'm pretty sure 
it's been harshly normalized at some point.  Still, vintage Tito Puentes is 
kind of hard to come by on the binaries, so here you go.

This originated from a lossless audio stream rip from a Tidal music service 
subscription of mine.  The stream was CD quality, according to Tidal service.  
Rip was done using an Asus Xonar DG sound card.  Wave editor was Cool Edit Pro 
using 48k/floating 32 bit settings.  I then converted the .wavs down to 24 bit 
so the FLAC encoder would work with them. No other alterations were performed, 
other than what follows. 

I totally silenced any system noise between tracks with the editor.  The track 
timings will be fairly close to match that of the original release, but they 
are by no means perfect.  Because of the lack of .log and .cue files it 
probably won't be something a purist wants.  But it's plenty good enough for 
the average listener.    

Tracks are tagged and I have info in the comments section about the source and 
.wav gathering, just to keep the digital gene pool organized.  If possible I'll 
try to include some artwork with it.

Here's my way of paying it forward after leeching more stuff than I can count 
from the binaries over the years.  I generally don't re: much on the groups.  
Off doing other stuff, but I do hope you enjoy it if you grab it.  Love the 
title track, btw.
