5.0 out of 5 stars Ismael Rivera: "Esto Fue Lo Que Trajo El Barco" 1972, April 29, 2005
This review is from: Esto Fue Lo Que Trajo El Barco (Audio CD)
This is it. This is the greatest sonero in world history. Ismael Rivera, El Sonero Mayor. There are many pretty boys today pretending sing salsa; but is not about have an educated voice when it comes to salsa. Is about having the ability to improvise and play with the music knowing where to put the words. With todays technology some can made it in the studio. But live is a different story.

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.

"Esto Fue Lo Que Trajo El Barco" literally means: "this is what the boat brought". In Puerto Rico we use this phrase when we have something that is not so good, but is the only thing we have. But believe me, this production is not a so so stuff. This is one of the best production Ismael Rivera made as a soloist.

¡YUMBO AGUA TANA OH! (African words) I love this song. This is a five stars song.

DIME POR QUE (Tell me why) is a song about a love that end. This is a five stars song.

LA VACA LECHERA (The milk cow) is pretty funny. Is actually a kids song. Only Ismael Rivera could transform that song into a guaguancó.

MAÑA MAÑA (Wise Wise) this is another funny song. If you growth up with Sesame Street, you will recognize the melody. The song is about those young girls that think they know about love business and end being some old fox victims.

LA MANIA DE TU MUJER (Your wife habit) is about a guy whose wife is looking for and adventure. This song is not that good.

SAN MIGUEL ARCANGEL (Archangel Michael) is about Santeria. This is a five stars song

INCOMPRENDIDO (Misunderstood) this is one of Ismael Rivera greatest hits. An anthem for all of us that haven't found true love. This is a five stars hit.

LA GATA MONTESA (Mount Cat) is about a woman that return a little late to the love she once abandon. This is a five stars hit.

HASTA MAÑANA (Until tomorrow) is a bolero. This is a five stars song.

TRAIGO SALSA (I brought the salsa) This song is pretty good, but not that good.
