An "assault" with the best salsa ever produced
Marc Sheller | Lima, Perú | 02/28/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I had heard very good comments of this production since long ago and, in many opportunities, I was close to get one of those old vynil-made records but I didn't. For more than 30 years, I have listened to hundreds of times songs like "Canto a Borinquen", Traigo la Salsa", "La Murga Panameña" and the song which I like the most: "Aires de Navidad" (far the most famous of all of these group of salsas in my country, Perú). However, it is not the same to hear these songs evenly one here and other there than hearing all of them together, in the sequence presented in this CD. The context of them is really impressive and this makes the difference. This CD is really an outstanding production. The sound recorded is original all along and the presentation of the CD is quite illustrative, accompanied by a small brochure that gives us a good view of the history of these salsas and their meaning as a part of the culture of Puerto Rico. Dear friends, if you are fans of Salsa, buy it new or used but don't lose the pleasure of listen to all this precious music and let you be "assaulted" by Willie Colon, Hector Lavoe and their friens of Fania,no matter if Christmas time has gone.."
El mejor album de navidad
Laszlo Nanasi-Lopategui | San Juan, PR USA | 12/22/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Es muy raro que usted vaya a una fiesta de navidad en Borinquen y no oiga este disco. Desde el 1972 ha sido consistentemente unos de los mayores disco de ventas tanto en el catalogo de Willie Colon como en el de Hector Lavoe. La combinacion de Hector Lavoe, Willie Colon y Yomo Toro es espectacular. Ademas, la secuela (Asalto Navideno Vol.II) es del mismo calibre."
Crowning Achievment
Leonel Albizu | APO, AE United States | 06/09/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This Cd is the crowning achievment of Willie Colon's career. This is the best Christams Album of all time... and I'm not exagerating. All of these tracks a umbelievably great. Canto a borinquen is hands down a classic. I really don't know what more i can say. Please respect this album for the greatness that it is. I love this album...."
