"The late great sonero Pete "Conde" Rodriguez was Johnny Pacheco's lead singer for almost a decade before recording this Pacheco-produced solo debut...and what a strong album it was!!! Pete's powerful and ever-soulful vocals and inspired soneos (improvisations) are truly superb on the classics "Los Compadres", "Blanca Paloma", "Un Toque Pa' Yambao" and a classy remake of Beny More's "El Conde Negro". Buy (and enjoy!) this CD and you'll understand why Pete was regarded as Johnny Pacheco's all-time greatest singer."
