I'm very interested in Cuban records but unfortunately my knowledge is fairly limited. I'm somewhat familiar with some of the labels but I'd love to know more about their history and conventions. For instance, I know PanArt had copies of their masters sent to the U.S. which allowed them to retain their catalog when they were exiled here post-revolution. How can one tell "old" PanArt from "new"? When you see a record on Egrem or Areito, you know that it's pretty much a fully-Cuban production, from recording to mastering, pressing, art design and printing of the jackets/labels. Authentic and indigenous, or so to speak. However on other records from labels like PanArt, Kubaney, Discuba, etc. I often see things like manufactured or distributed in the USA, or Hialeah Fl. (which I understand has a large Cuban community) etc. So, what's up with that? What are some of the labels that were active in both old and post-revolution Cuba, and how can one tell records are authentic Cuban pressings? It would seem that there isn't much of any info online in regards to some of these labels but I'm looking forward to learning from what some of you may know.
