Ros' first Phase 4 LP, Bongos from the South is light-years removed from his earliest records. The Command label's trick of using total channel separation for bongos and so forth already is in full bloom. "Deep in the Heart of Texas" is arranged as a conga, interestingly, and such venerable warhorses as "Taboo," "Brasil," and "El Cumbanchero" are strong enough to survive the indignities of stereo exaggeration. On the bright side, the fidelity is superior and the performances very spirited." - AMG.

Detail and definition are amazing, the sound stage is wide and deep, and there is tremendous "air" and "presence" around each instrument.The vinyl is dead-quiet and the recording is cut Super Hot!To play this LP properly you must be sure that your tonearm/cartridge combo is set-up precisely or you will have trouble tracking this recording!
