Editorial Reviews

Perhaps the best set of classic Maelo tracks ever released. Ismael Rivera was one of the very best interpreters of Afro- Caribbean music. His warm and swaggering voice was one of the most adored of all soneros by fans from all countries. His uncanny ability to improvise gave him the title 'Sonero Mayor.' This album includes the evergreens 'Las Caras Lindas,' 'Dime Porque' and 'Mi Negrita Me Espera.' This collection is the best starting point to sample the
talent of the late great 'Maelo.'

1. Las Caras Lindas
2. Comedia
3. De Medio Lao
4. A Medias No
5. La Perla
6. Ella No Merece Un Llanto
7. Angelica

This is Ismael Rivera's Master Piece. If you say you have a collection of salsa music and do not have this album you are wrong.

Other thing: this is an original album, not a compilation of "hits". This is important because there is no way you can put all his best songs in a CD. And all those hits compilations always repeat the same songs. If you like his music you have to buy the original records, because almost everything he sang is good.

The only thing this production is missing is to have a song wrote by Rafael Hernandez, to have the three greatest puertorrican composers and the greatest sonero.

CARAS LINDAS (Pretty Faces) This song was wrote by Tite Curet Alonso, one of the greatest composers of Puerto Rico. Is a song dedicated to black people. This is one of the greatest hits of Ismael Rivera and is over 7 minutes long.

COMEDIA (Comedy) This is a love song. About those loves that never treat you the way you should be treated. This is a Five stars hit.

DE MEDIO LADO (Side Ways) This song is about a beautiful woman that have a littler defect on the way she walk. A five stars hit.

A MEDIAS NO (No Half Way) This song is a protest against the colonial status of Puerto Rico. A five stars hit.

LA PERLA (La Perla) Another song by the master Tite Curet Alonso. If you go to the Old San Juan an visit the fortress El Morro, at the side looking towars the Atlantic you will see a cementer and at its right you will see "La Perla".

ELLA NO MERECE UN LLANTO (She Doesn't Deserve A Cry) This song was wrote by Pedro Flores, one of the greates composers of Puerto Rico.

ANGELICA (Angelica). Is a bolero about a woman named Angelica. A five stars song.

"Esto Si Es Lo Mio" is rightly viewed by many as Ismael Rivera's best album ever. The hit singles "Las Caras Lindas", "Ella No Merece Un Lanto" and "A Medias No" all became Salsa anthems of their era and are instantly associated with "El Sonero Mayor". Ismael was at his best here but (if that's not enough!) check out the killer coro of Adalberto Santiago, Ruben Blades, Tito Allen and Hector Lavoe. Any serious salsero needs to have this CD as it's a true masterpiece on all counts.

ismael river (RIP).

a handsome singer that has moved the bees (metaphor).
this cd is the lay back / cool style type --- caution : his voice will move you.
you know. in the mustic world. the vocals can made the band or vice versa. in this case, has voice rules ( not to say that his band is lame --- far from that).

track (1) " las caras lindas " 7:12 --- the introduction(12 secs) already tells you that this orchastra is smooth ( sit back type)...1:07-1:09 is a PERFECT ( i mean PERFECT !) clear example ( lets learn) of a intrumental imitation ( cool) --- listening to the way the instruments follow his great voice is trully amazing.
1:53-3:27 demonstrates this low / relaxed band / smooth orchastra...at the end of 3:27, he gives the band the green light ("swena"). then they go to town...
i love the tones of the brass 3:32-35 / 3:42-45 --- VERY TOUCHING.

track (3) " de medio lao" 3:58 --- is really lay back / sweet chorus...

enjoy.
