Charanga 76 - Mi Amor Prohibido (1979)

Yes, I know, the idea to have a disco producer like Ferrara ("Love Attack" and "Shangaied") directing a Cuban band in covering in Spanish language an untouchable masterpiece like Chic's "My Forbidden Lover" sound very brave, but the result is surprisingly pleasant, the arrangement is still elegant and the Spanish vocals are well re-written, it worked few years before with "Good Times" as "Vamos a Gozar" and the formula is still a winning one!
