Collage Daze

IMG_7171

“Advance Promotion” by Pato C.  Rowt Records (Uraquay).  According to Discogs, Pato C was an Argentine DJ, pioneer in Argentina in the edition of mixed discs and musical selector of rock & roll, funk, Latin and electronic music through his own label and other distributors in the 1970s to early 1990s.  So this is a vinyl mixtape with some cool soul and funk cuts.  We love the artsy, primitive collage cover!
