CD Reviews

One of Salsa's greatest masterpieces.
Justo Roteta | Los Angeles, California United States | 06/30/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Rican/Struction" was the album that on which Ray reunited with the great sonero Adalberto Santiago--restarting what had been an extremely successful partnership. "Al Ver Sus Campos", "Un Dia Sere Feliz", "Tumbao Africano" and "Adelante Siempre Voy" remain among Ray's best recordings and this CD is one of the five most influential and successful Salsa recordings of all time. No serious salsero should miss out on this CD."
An all-time classic. Ray and Adalberto at their vey best!!!

"No serious salsero should be without this CD as it's simply and undeniably an undisputed all-time classic. This album brought together all of the elements that made the previous Barretto/Santiago collaborations so special but added two very jazzy and experimental numbers ("Algo Nuevo" and "Tumbao Africano"). The great Adalberto Santiago's vocals are glorious and beyond any reproach whatsoever on such immortal masterpieces as "Ya Ves", "Al Ver Sus Campos" and "Algun Dia Sere Feliz". Almost 30 years after its original release this album remains as important and enjoyable as back then's a MUST for your CD collection."
