Hello. I'm from the Philippines and this band is largely unknown to us music enthusiasts here. I would really appreciate if you could re-upload the songs so that we'll be able to hear and download them. Especially the song "Makibaka," which was a popular chant against Marcos during that time. ("Makibaka, huwag matakot" = "Fight, don't be afraid")

Dakila was a San Francisco band composed mostly of Filipino-Americans. They began their career as an early Santana "cover band" called Soul Sacrifice. One of the original members was conga player Raul Rekow, who went on to perform and record with Malo and Sapo before spending much of the past 31 years in Santana (Raul had already left the band before this LP was recorded).

I saw Dakila perform live at venues like U.C.Berkeley's Greek Theatre and Bill Graham's Winterland. They were an excellent live band, with original material largely in a Santana-influenced Latin Rock style and vocals in English, Tagalog and Spanish. Unfortunately, Epic Records dropped them before they could release their second album, which had some good new songs, a little smoother and more sophisticated.

I am from the Mission District and a veteran from the 1960s-1970s Latin Rock musical impact created by Santana. Dakila was indeed a great group but was not allowed to continue due to social reasons. See article at: http://la-verdad-es-libertad.blogspot.com [in Spanish] related to Latin Rock of the 1970s.

A good friend of mine, A DJ from the Bay Area, introduced me to Dakila (after listening to several Santana and Malo records together). I ran out and bought this great album the very next day (summer of '72).

I immediately dubbed the album to open reel tape and have loved this awesome music for almost 40 years. I still listen to the tape a lot, but I am selling the rarely played LP on eBay. If anybody wants a mint copy, look it up on eBay, It's a killer album!
