Recorded in Puerto Rico, October 1970. Back cover title: "Tributo postumo de "Gema" a Guillermo Portabales". Matrix, Runout (Runout, Side A): LPGS-3086A.
My first encounter with Guillermo Portabales was in 1996, when this great CD came out. He was a unique performer of the ‘Guajira’, a rhythm that is halfway between ‘Punto’ and ‘Son’. Born in 1911 in Cuba, Cienfuegos, Guillermo was named the creator of ‘Guajira de Salon’ because he added melodie and cadence and made it his own. This album was recorded in 1970 in Puerto Rico with Los Guaracheros de Oriente, also Cuban. Portabales settled in Puerto Rico and stayed there until his untimely death on 25th October 1970
