Nuestra Cosa/Our Latin Thing-the start of the salsa movement in New York and around the world. The year was 1971 and on an August night, the leaders of each group from the Fania label got together for one big shindig at the Cheetah in New York City. The Masters of Ceremonies that night were Symphony Sid and Izzy Sanabria. Led by Johnny Pacheco, the All Stars grooved through the night as they played songs such as "Quitate Tu", "Anacaona", "Ponte Duro", "Descarga Fania", "Estrellas de Fania", and more. But to me, this is an important recording to our culture, because this soundtrack was the one that introduced the Spanish speaking culture of New York to different types of people across the U.S. and the World. This was indeed, the supernova of Salsa.

ESTE ALBUM ES EL "SOUND TRACK" DE LA PELICULA OUR LATIN THING DE LAS ESTRELLAS DE FANIA. ESCUCHARAN ALGUNAS DE LAS CANCIONES SIN EDITAR, GRABADAS EN VIVO EN EL "NIGHT CLUB" CHEETAH EN N.Y. CITY. ADEMAS ESCUCHARAN GRABACIONES SOBRE LAS INCIDENCIAS DEL DIARIO VIVIR DEL PUERTORRIQUEÑO RADICADO EN LA CIUDAD DE NUEVA YORK, QUE NO HARA NINGUN SENTIDO ESCUCHARLO SI NO ESTAS VIENDO LA PELICULA, POR QUE NO LO ENTENDERAS. LA PELICULA ME GUSTA MUCHO Y HACE TIEMPO QUE NO LA VEO DISPONIBLE EN LAS TIENDAS. NO HACE MUCHO SENTIDO ESCUCHAR EL "SOUND TRACK" YA QUE ESCUCHARAS LO MISMO QUE SE ESCUCHA EN LA PELICULA SIN PODER VERLA, ASI QUE MEJOR TRATA DE ADQUIRIR LA PELICULA Y SI QUIERES DISFRUTAR SOLO LA MUSICA ENTOCES COMPRA LOS CD'S F.A.S. LIVE AT CHEETAH VOL. 1 & 2. ES LA MEJOR PRODUCCION DE LAS ESTRELLAS FANIA EN VIVO CON TODOS SUS ARTISTAS ORIGINALES Y PODRAS ESCUCHAR TODAS LAS CANCIONES QUE ESTAN EN ESTE "SOUND TRACK" EXCEPTO LAMENTO GUAJIRO DE LA ORQUESTA HARLOW CON ISMAEL MIRANDA, PERO PUEDES CONSEGUIR ESTA CANCION EN EL ALBUM "HARLOW & MIRANDA THE BEST". RESUMIENDO: COMPRALO SOLO SI ERES COLECCIONISTA.

This is a documentary about salsa and how Fania innovated this unique sound. The movie delivered very nicely. However, this does not automatically translate into a good music album. The soundtrack has it's good moments, like for example in "Abran Paso", but just as you get into the song, it cuts into commentary by Geraldo Rivera. It has great songs, don;t get me wrong, "Descarga Fania" and Bobby Cruz on "Ahora Vengo Yo" are Fania classics, but you are better either getting the full versions on their respective albums or purchasing the video, which is rather entertaining. Plus, since it is a 2 disc CD my experience in various places says that the price is way too steep for it.
