Santa Esmeralda

As disco became an important part of the international music business, European producers began working in exotic flavors into the disco beat to create unique and competitive recordings. A good example of this trend is Santa Esmeralda, a Spanish-themed studio group that wove elements of flamenco, salsa, and other Latin musical styles into its Euro-disco sound. Although the group's sound was about as genuinely Spanish as Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass (Santa Esmeralda was the brainchild of French record producers), the result was a crossover success that spawned several club-favorite albums and a notable pop hit in the band's Latinized cover of "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood." ~ Donald A. Guarisco, Rovi

I didn't appreciate the guitar until around the 90's and when I heard this song. At some point I bought a guitar and had already found some music but I lost it all and more when I got......... now I'm here. Relatives and trusted can and are like crimminals they think it's ok to do you dirty animals worse. They will pay someday, they don't know when but know why!

Please add Leroy Gomez and his song "Lady Let Me Change Your Mind". I've been missing that song. Want to hear it badly.

Leroy Gomez ROCKS!!!! Please include "Don't Be Shy Tonight" - one of the best albums they're made/

Not only is this a great album, but there are other Santa Esmeralda albums that Pandora must include to better illistrate S.E.'s music performances .

For me this was an album that should have been more recognized for its originality and quality. The way the music was arranged gave it a uniqueness to be introducted and integrated within the Disco music scenes. I was only 11 when this came out and even then I was moved, I thought it was a jam then and even when I hear it now, it still makes me want to do the hustle and flow, its a great album. Definetly a classic!
