For this new Soundway Records release, a collection of Colombian cumbia and porro from the period 1948 - 1979, you'd better take your time, because listening to all of the 55 tracks (meticulously compiled over a period of several years by Will 'Quantic' Holland) will soon set you back a couple of hours. Here and there a familiar name like that of Anibal Velasquez pops up, but most of the tracks and artists on this compilation don't really ring a bell, not surprising when you know many of the songs on 'The Original Sound Of Cumbia' appear for outside of Colombia the very first time .
