Abuelita’s Donas

Digging through old vinyl at my folks’ place I stumbled across a little pile of 7″ 45s from six long-forgotten Puerto Rican musicians. The island record labels include: Irene Records, B.M.C., Suaritos, Continental Records, J.M.C. and Jenny. I have no idea how rare any of these are, so if you have any background on these records or the artists themselves, please leave a note in the comments! Download these dozen doughnuts
