*** Take 8 of La Bamba is the complete sound track which was used for the master version. ***

Do you have any idea if the tape was sped up at all?

I ask because, as I mentioned earlier, Ritchie seems to be breezing thru the lyrics on the released version, where on the "Live at Pacoima Jr. High" live version, while he's getting the lyrics out well enough, they're not coming out as fast and smooth as on the record...

Now I know live recordings are going to sound different than studio recordings, for any number of reasons, but I'm wondering if Bob may have slightly sped up the master take to make Ritchie's singing of the song sound better overall? I mean I know he really didn't speak Spanish much, if at all, so I'm wondering if while he was singing the lyrics out phonetically, maybe Bob Keane may have (slightly) sped things up to make it seem like a better performance?

I'm not saying that was the case, more of just something I got thinking about...
