CD Reviews

Willie and Hector Explode on this album!
Enrique Fernandez Roberts | Washington, DC | 06/25/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Hector Lavoe and Willie Colon open this very dancable album with the classic, Calle Luna Calle Sol. This sing became a calling card for the vioilence that characterized Old San Juan during the 70's, when this album was released. The album is pure energy, with WIllie Colon blasting his trombone through the frenetic Guajira Ven, and Hector improvising in the way that only a true Sonero can in La Maria. The album is the truest tribute to Puerto Rico, and Salsa as only these two men can do. The only thing that saddens me is that you haven't bought this album yet. This album is a MUST if you like Salsa. I have owned TWO copies so far because I wore out the first one from listening to it so much."
The Best of the Willie Colon/Hector Lavoe LPs
Ivan Latalladi | Chicago | 01/28/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This extraordinary recording contains Willie Colon and Hector Lavoe at their best. To me, "Lo Mato" is Willie & Hector's finest because this album contains great hits like "Calle Luna, Calle Sol" and "Todo Tiene Su Final". The band was on target and Hector Lavoe's vocals flowed like a mighty river.
Personally, my favorites are "El Dia De Suerte" and "La Maria" (penned by the late Catalino Curet Alonso). If you want to start a Willie Colon or Hector Lavoe collection I highly recommend this classic.Hector Lavoe Lead vocals

"This is one of the best NYC salsa records from the 70s, if not the best.This CD is a must for anybody interested in classic salsa music. The band is incredibly tight, the sound edgy and rough; this is a two-trombone led small band, a "tougher" sound than most salsa. Hector Lavoe's singing and improvisation are unbeatable. The album never loses it's energy-- and this from an album that starts off with "Calle Luna Calle Sol", one of the strongest salsa songs ever. The songwriting is great throughout, with "Calle Luna Calle Sol" (about muggings in Old San Juan) and "El día de suerte" (about an orphaned convict still full of hope) standing out in particular."
