Felix Saucedo y Guitarras de Kike Subia El Diablico 45 (Artelec, 19??)
Another mystery single and that is fine with me. One of the pleasures of digging for records is coming up with gems that defy easy explanation. For instance, who is Felix Saucedo? Assuming that he is the vocalist, why does he get top billing when Enrique "Kike" Subia, a noted Panamanian folkloric musician, is on guitar? Is it because is very good at making the sounds of a man possessed by the Devil? And is the song about a man possessed, as the title "El Diablico" would leave one to believe? Is this a split single because it is a novelty song (the flip is a standard cumbia by La Alondra Interiorana)? Why is "El Diablico" the A side of this single? And when was this made - the 1960s or 70s? Some things to ponder while listening to this strange but wonderful song.
It's very difficult to identify the year because
the style is pretty folkish and "without time".
The art of the logo "Artelec" is pretty late 50s-early 60s.
