Yma Rocks (non-serialized version)
NOTE: buy now for early 2018 delivery! This is the first official release of Yma Sumac's fantastic 1971 rock session, made for general distribution.  It is not a true REissue since it was made from new mastering with a clearer, cleaner mix than the original album so even if you already have Miracles, Yma Rocks! is a must too. All-new 8-page full-color booklet with new notes, new never before seen photos and some redesign using the original graphics by noted artist Raymond Bennett.

Being Yma Sumac's first complete recording since her famous Fuego del Ande LP in 1959, it features the ten original tracks from Miracles plus two that were previously-unreleased, making twelve fantastic songs in all.  Yma Sumac growls, swoops and soars through her five-octave range with ease, with her voice and wonderful improvisational skills fully in control.

Yma Rocks!, with its fresh and new mastering, is a true rock tour de force and a real listening experience for both fans and newcomers alike.

A special serialized Collectors' Edition is also available exclusively on SunVirgin.com with very few remaining and there will be no reissues once the current supply is gone!
