"Yes its true, the conga duel between Ray Barreto + Mongo Santamaria called 'Congo Bongo' was so intense that the Yankee Stadium crowd broke into the stage and the concert was stopped. Its all here for your amazement -a legendary performance from the hey day of Salsa in the 70s, from da'Bronx! Not a soul or rock tune, but 100% afro-latin un-categorizable beyond that. The rest of the album are the studio versions of what the Fania All Stars intended to play, latin-jazz-rock fussion, some cool stuff. Also included is an old Joe Cuba Sextet tune 'El Raton' featuring the singer Cheo Feliciano and Carlos' bro; Malo Santana on electric guitar for another live gem, cool + bluesy. This is one great album of the greatest ensemble of Salsa musicians at their peak. A must have for any serious Salsa fan, or anyone who appreciates the latin music of the 70s"
