Searing-hot and fiery 1970s New York-style salsa .
Justo Roteta | Los Angeles, California United States | 05/29/2004

"If you are into the rock-solid, hard-swinging and fiery-hot 1970s New York salsa sounds, this is an absolutely essential CD for your collection. Marvin Santiago was a great sonero and he gives some of his rawest and funkiest performances on such outstanding tracks as "La Rumba Te Espera", "La Leonor", "Soy Boricua" and "Alacran (Tumbando Cana)". The only reason I did NOT give this excellent 1972 release a 5-star rating is because the remastering quality on most tracks is not that good."
