"I didn't expect a lot from this cd and I must admit my expectations were more than met. I ordered mostly for historical reasons, to sample one of the earliest popularlizers of salsa in the United States. The price was a warning, and I knew it and accepted it. I don't feel cheated, but I'm reviewing it just to inform potential buyers. The sound quality is like one of those historical folk recordings some anthropologist made using equipment in the trunk of his car. I think it's actually monaural. I shouldn't carp about the music itself, because it is what it is. But it is not authentic early Cuban salsa: it's been made cute for a (possibly resistant?) American audience and market. The music historian might not mind this, but as a salsa fan I found it way too saccharine. Also there are no liner notes. The cheesy, PhotoShopped cover picture sets the tone. Let the buyer be informed.
