Yes, it's that "Danny Boy." You really don't need to hear it. Not really one 10 out of 10 song this week, despite lots of fine artists. A selection of small horizons, as RT might have it. (Oh, and it's not THE version of "Girlfriend" but a demo, hence not a 10/10.)

We have a version of "Chan Chan" by Compay Segundo on a different disc (though it may be the same one as BVSC.

Great, great stuff.

I like the BVSC stuff and Cuban music in general but haven't spent the ear-time trying to remember what's what. But punchy stuff with horns is usually just fine by me.
