Notes

Bestway pressing variant with alternate typesetting on labels.

Miracles re-unites the extraordinary five-octave voice of Peru's Yma Sumac with Les Baxter, the producer of her first album, "The Voice of Xtabay" (released in 1950). Acclaimed for her powerful and unique artistry, Miss Sumac achieved world fame during the Fifties with the use of Mr. Baxter's productions. He has chosen to record Yma in a contemporary setting with a four-piece rock band and modern recording techniques. The results are a stunning showcase for an unparalleled performer.
Yma is an adventurous musician. She has conquered many modes, from Peruvian folksongs, through operatic arias, as well as popular Latin songs and international folk music. Now, in her very unique way, she tackles rock.
Miracles melds the most extraordinary music of this century with the most extraordinary voice of three generations - an improvisational tour de force.

    Les Baxter, Yma Sumac and a highly potent psych-rock/funk band occasionally creates magic in this unique album. "Medicine Man", "Flame Tree" and of course "El Condor Pasa" will never get out of style.

      Enchanting and beautiful fusion of two completely different worlds (Exotika and Psychedelic Rock). Love this album!

        The cover of my copy of this album was autographed in person by Miss Sumac in 1990

          The transfer was done directly from the original master tapes, not from vinyl as one reviewer reported. If their copy had dropouts, either their player needed cleaning, they received a faulty disk or possibly they got a bootleg.
