Sabroso Go Go brings together fourteen musical mixes created in the recording studios of Manuel Antonio Guerrero (MAG), in which music directors combine rhythm with alchemy in a quest to find the philosopher's stone of the dance. Exotica, ye-yé cumbia, guaracha infused twist, rock n' roll mambo, Spanish rumba, boogaloo beat, tropical garage, and other unexpected bastard genres are featured in this festive compilation. Although this compilation begins in 1957, experiments like this (some more memorable than others) were not new in Peru. The songs on this album were however much more successful hybrids. Lucho Macedo's orchestra took up the mantle and reinterpreted a well-known guaracha by Celia Cruz ("Rock and Roll") in mambo style, renaming it "Rock and Roll Mambo". Another mix in this vein is the rock tune "El Rock de los Chinos" by the Mexican Manolo Muñoz (author of "Speedy González") recorded by the Chilean Choche Mérida for MAG in 1961. The following year, Chubby Checker's "The Twist" hit the scene and was immediately fused with guaracha by maestro Nelson Ferreyra. A legendary MAG musician, Carlos Pickling, composed "La Charanga del Espacio" in 1963. The space sounds are produced by Pickling and his inseparable Hammond. He himself is the one who leads the orchestra that accompanies Benny Del Solar, Lita Branda, and Pablo "Melcochita" Villanueva in the tropicalized version of "Spanish Rumba". "Batijugando" was a hit from Mexico and was played in all the rhythms played across the Hispanic world since 1967. Inspired by the Batman series, it was performed at MAG by the Betico Salas orchestra, with vocals by the Panamanian lady crooner Nallye Fernández. "Computador Electrónico", performed by Panamanian vocalist Patty Pastel, it is the only known version in Spanish of "Der Computer Nr. 3", originally sung in German by France Gall. Two other songs feature Edgar Zamudio. The versatility of Zamudio y Los Vikingos (originally a Chilean group) is demonstrated in the guitar-heavy song composed specifically for the late sixties skate fashion ("Go Go en Patines") and in his idiosyncratic protest song ("Día de Pago") performed in beat style. In the mid-seventies, Los Kintos, led by guitarist Francisco Acosta, developed different harmonic ideas in an instrumental track that veers from boogaloo to salsa, the fashionable rhythm of the day. Finally, in 1976, when the bumping hips dance craze swept the continent, Manuel Guerrero was quick to jump onto the bandwagon, composing a "Bump" song, together with his son Carlos. The Italian musician based in Lima, Luciano Luciani performed the song "A Bailar Bump" backed by his band of local musicians Los Mulatos. Also features Tito Chicoma, Choche Merida, Willy Marambio.
