I never liked "Oye Como Va" by Santana, so I can't share the group's
enthusiasm for the original. None of the records in this group is a
keeper for me, and it's not easy to rate them. How do you rank something
#1 when it's not even something you would like to hear again?

1-I Dig This Station - Gary (U.S.) Bonds
2-New York Breakdown - Doctor Ross
3-New Kind of Love - Willie Harper
4-Oye Como Va - Tito Puente
