No habrá una Reunión en el 2013… o al menos no será organizada por mí. Luego del tremendo éxito de la reunión del 40 Aniversario el año pasado mucha gente preguntó si habría una el siguiente año a lo que contesté que sí. Pero lamentablemente no podré ir a Puerto Rico para esa época del año. Si alguien desea organizar algo por su cuenta tendrán mi apoyo siempre y cuando no se convierta en una actividad para sacar dinero como cierta persona me sugirió el año pasado 😉

There will be no 2013 Reunion…or at least not made by me. After the great success of the 40th Anniversary Reunion last year people started asking if there would be a follow up in 2013 and I said yes.  Unfortunately I won’t be able to make it to Puerto Rico by that time of the year. If someone would like to organize something you’ll have my support as long as it’s not an event made to make money like certain someone suggested to me last year 😉

The 40th Anniversary Reunion was a success!!:
Mar 27, 2012:

The 40th Anniversary:

As a gift to all of you for the beginning of the celebration, I give you the long awaited “The Collazo/Mandry Tapes Vol. 2”  …and “The Collazo/Mandry Tapes Vol. 3“!!!  If that wasn’t enough, I will also give you………… the Alice Cooper EP (an incomplete set also from the Collazo/Mandry tapes):

If you’re wondering why I released all three at once… it’s because I’m going to Puerto Rico tomorrow and I don’t wanna have to deal with complicated website updates while I’m there. So this is my “Leaving Las Vegas” update/gift.  By the way, if you wanna know a little more about me and my taste…. Alice Cooper’s recording is my favorite thing about Mar Y Sol. If I could go back in time and just be at the festival for an hour, it would be while Alice was playing :). So, this bootleg means the world to me!


Mar 26, 2012:

– Official festival document added to the Other images section stating the new added acts (the ones not in the poster). Billy Joel is one of them.

– 4 bands added to the Performers list. Most of them (probably all of them) didn’t play: Al Kooper, Billy Preston, Kenny Loggins & Jim Messina, Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels.

– New info on the false Mar Y Sol video.

– Just received a LOT of official documents from the festival production. Will post them when I come back from my trip to Puerto Rico.
