"Sample Source" #2 - Cypress Hill/CSN
"Suite: Judy Blue Eyes"'s notorious Spanish-sung section,
"¡Que linda! Me la traigo a Cuba
La reina de la Mar Caribe
Quiero sólo visitarla allí
Y que triste que no puedo. ¡Vaya!
O va, o va!"
roughly translates to:
"How pretty! I'll bring her to Cuba
The queen of the Caribbean Sea
I only want to visit her there
And how sad that I can't. Oh!
Oh go, oh go!"
The sample used in "Armada Latina" is culled from the fourth and final section (coda) of "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes." In this classic CSN/Woodstock '69 performance, the sample source can be heard @ about the 7-minute mark.
Stephen Stills, who penned the original song, appears @ about the 2:50-mark of the 2010 music video. He can been seen sporting a blue Hawaiian shirt, re-playing guitar break-down (penned between 1968-69).
