|This is Richard Hayman’s 1969 cheezily synthesized “Genuine Electric Latin Love Machine”. Hear synthesized versions of songs like “The Girl From Ipanema”, “The Windmills of Your Mind”, and “Hare Krishna”.

|The Pachacamac is an ancient Peruvian site, thought to be nearly 3000 years old. Legend has it that every so often, on a clear sunny day, this dark haired guy in a tank top rises up from the Lurin River nearby and sings Latin hits.
Of course, it is only the stuff of legend, and no one knows if it’s true.
One blog has Beto Mendez’s nationality as Ecuadorian. The album was produced likely some time in the mid-1960s.
