Juan Vicente Torrealba- Interpreta su Musica (Instrumental) Venevox BL-76

"This is an old recording that I picked up in Venezuela in 1971. It was unusual at the time in that in featured the compositions of Juan Vicente Torreabla, all strongly rooted in the Venezuelan tradition but here played on two harps instead of one but with the usual accompaniment of cuatro and maracas. The second harp was played by the then young protege of Torrealba, Gustavo Enrique Vera. This has long been one of my favorites and not finding it anywhere currently for sale I decided to convert it to MP3 files from the original LP." -Robert Garfias

So many people think the bitrate is synonymous to audio quality. There are more factors that define sound...but anyways, nice music! Thanks to you for sharing. And thanks to Robert Garfias.

@Feq'wah- Yeah, I don't claim to really understand bit rates. I just trust my ear & these sound nice to me.
