If you like latin, esp. the Afro-Cuban Allstars, the Gold Collections are for you. I have never regretted buying these, and still listen to them.

This CD (and most of the Cuban Gold series) is like a "starter kit" for the kinds of dance sounds (and bands) that were popular in Cuba during the late 70's through the 80's. That would include "songo" which bands like Van Van and Ritmo Oriental (both in this CD) originated as well as the whole "Onda Areito" named more for the Cuban record label that existed during those years (now I think it's just Egrem), than for a specific sound or style. Each band and cut on this disc is quite distinct from the other, something one can appreciate when the average salsa compilation features a more homogenized sound despite all the different band names.

While the "Fania Sound" was being played and celebrated throughout Latin America (and New York, Miami, etc.) during that era, these Cuban bands and their unique sounds didn't get much play and exposure outside the island. Sad, but true. That's due to the political and sociological isolation of the island, with plenty of blame to go around on all ideological sides.

But enough of depressing politics which goes beyond the scope of a CD review. Let's be thankful that this series gives us a taste of the wonderful material that Cuban musicians living and working on the island were making during those years, while on this side of the pond we had the waves of Fania, "salsa romantica", and then merengue.

According to the notes inside, this CD was compiled by Harry Sepulveda; that's right, the guy who ran the legendary original Record Mart in the Times Square subway station! The Qbadisc label licensed several CDs worth of stuff from the Cuban label Egrem for distribution in the states. I believe to this day, Egrem cannot sell/distribute directly to the US due to the embargo.

I'd give this 10 stars if I could. Quite possibly the greatest Cuban album ever complied. One of my favorte CDs! If you are interested in starting or adding another Cuban CD to the collection, do yourself a favor and buy this one. Enjoy!
