The following discussions are taken from the newsgroup and are left as they were posted to the newsgroup. I only skipped some quotes (which are not needed here) and changed the order a bit. Remaining quotes are marked, as usual with a '>' in the beginning of each line.

I provide this for the people who didn't have the opportunity or time to follow all of the discussion in the newsgroup. Hope you find it as interesting as I did.

If I see that there is interest in such discussions, I'm going to supply you with more.

These are the discussions available:

Beatles Salsa CD ... sacrilegious ?

Here's a short introduction: "The Tropical Tribute To The Beatles" is a CD containing Beatles songs interpreted 'latin-style' (salsa and other rhythms) by salsa-stars like Celia Cruz, Tito Nieves, Cheo Feliciano and many others. Steve Roitstein, arranger and musical director of this CD, took part in this discussion. You can find a short review (with my humble opinion about the songs) of the CD on the CDs-page - sorry, (still) only in german.

The discussion is quite entertaining, including some really funny posts.
