The Diablos - El Bandito / Hombre

These are some pretty fun latin-ish instrumentals arranged by Joe Negroni of Frankie Lyman and the Teenagers (not able to dig anything up on the rest of the credits). El Bandito appears to be the A side despite being more or less a throwaway, clocking in at only one minute and 40 seconds. However, "Hombre" is the scorcher here, mixing the goofy muted cornets (not sure about that, they almost sound like a vocal imitation of a trumpet) with some absolutely beautiful heavily reverbed guitar.

El Bandito


It appears this might have had a Spanish release with a picture cover afterward (the Jubilee disc was released in 1966, this references 1967)
