[Originally posted on March 12, 2012.] Several weeks ago, bored on a Saturday or Sunday, I decided it was time to revisit one of my favorite areas of Queens: Jackson Heights east. Basically, this means taking the 7 train out to the 82nd Street stop and walking east more-or-less along Roosevelt for 10-20 blocks or so. I won't go into the details of that trip, except to say that every single CD store that I used to frequent there when I was making more regular trips was gone. Most notably, the bodega with the wall of Ecuadoran CDs where I found this morning's offering. [Note on July 28, 2013: On a much more recent trip to the same area, I found a different store that I'd missed before -- I'll be posting some especially fabulous Ecuadorean CDs from that trip soon, perhaps even this evening.]
I know zip about Maxima Mejia other than that she was from Ecuador and sings passionately. And that I've been meaning to post her greatest hits CD here for quite a while, as I think you're going to like it.
Reupped in 320 thrill-seeking kbps here.
