El Santo de Mayo 2017!

Back in 1992, Southern Culture On The Skids released a vinyl EP called Santo! Sings on the now long defunct Zontar Records, in both black and transparent yellow pressings. The latter are very rare, so consider yourself lucky if you have one. If you don’t have either version, you can still enjoy the album’s only Santo-related track “Viva Del Santo!” Not only was the album released with additional material and new cover as Santo Swings by Estrus Records, but you can listen to its official upload thanks to the Southern Culture On The Skids topic on YouTube:

You can also listen to the other tracks on the album through the topic link, along with many of their other albums! Speaking of albums, how about that cover art? Whoever did it clearly loved Mexican horror cinema and Mexican lobby cards for such films. They simply couldn’t resist putting in German Robles’ Count Karol de Lavud (Duval the Vampire) character in there despite his having never appeared in a movie with El Santo. Please feel free to add your own comments about the characters on the cover art below (or if you have any information about El Hijo del Santo’s seeming return to the ring).

Feliz Cinco de Mayo!
Happy Cinco de Mayo!
