Tommy Olivencia
Edward R. Lopez | USA | 01/12/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"My favorite Tommy Olivencia album of all. Possibly one of salsa's greatest recordings. A little known salsa gem especially nowadays. I recently heard it played by one of L.A.'s best club dj's (dj Frank) and I was surprised that he had a copy. If you asked most salseros fairly new to salsa they won't have any idea who Tommy Olivencia is.. It's a little like explaining Cuban Timba artists to most U.S. salseros: they just don't have a clue. Tommy's Trucutu is a song that will blow you away. This and many other ot the tunes are beyond a doubt super danceable and you will be very surprised at the strength of Chamaco Ramirez voice and of this outstanding orquestra. 6 stars!"
One of the 1970s Salsa era's high points...and a real master

"No serious salsero should miss out on this CD as it's one of the greatest Puerto Rican Salsa recordings ever made. Olivencia and company give us some searing-hot and very funky "Salsa Dura" grooves suchas "Evelio Y La Rumba", "Si Estas Herido", "Casimira", "A La Yumbae" and the timeless title track. The late Chamaco Ramirez gives some of his wittiest, funkiest and powerful soneos (improvisations) which serve as a perfect compliment to the musicians' take-no-prisoners and fiery playing. This new and digitally remastered version offers considerably better sound quality than the previously available CD and at a lower price. If you don't yet have this CD all I can say is... GET IT Now!!!"

"O.K here it goes.. Chamaco Ramirez is like on FIRE!! on this whole CD. Like he was in the Zone through all of these tracks. This is probably the greatest "sonero" of all time... Maelo gets the nod because of longevity. But man o man!! Chamaco is the Truth... Trucutu is the Gem. Plante Bandera is just the Anthem of the 70's. Seirously Chamaco is on FIRE in this album... Based on this album alone I would induct Chamaco Ramirez into Salsa's Hall of Fame.. That good!! Get this now!! Now!! Whew..."
