wanted the CD settled for this download, well worth it. If you are building a salsa selection for your listening collection you won't be disappointed... My only negative comment is that the CD information and liner notes aren't given on downloads, that its why I prefer to get the CD when I purchase music.

Format: Audio CD
This 3rd and last 1979 Johnny Pacheco recording with the late Héctor Casanova is an album that features a slightly different style of sound, compared to the more "festive" and highly danceable recordings he did with Celia Cruz, or the Cuban Conjúnto albums he did with Pete "Conde" Rodríguez that tended to be more musical. (Cuban Conjúnto is the evolution of Cuban music through the addition of the Piano, the Conga-drum and the 2 to 3 Trumpets, without Timbales...)
This FINE recording which also doesn't resemble to his previous albums with Casanova still has the Pacheco trademark ALL OVER THE PLACE with the VERY DISTINCTIVE and UNIQUE style of arrangements that characterise him.

The WONDERFUL version of 1.Clavelítos featured here is an old Cuban tune that Johnny Pacheco VERY SUCCESFULLY transformed into an instrumental Jam with a GREAT Cuban Son-Montúno musicality!
This tune features two GREAT Trumpet solos by Luis "Períco" Ortíz, very brief vocals by Casanova, and a VERY CLASSY semi-electric Tres-guitar solo by Charlie Rodríguez!...
Things then liven up EVEN MORE for the listeners and dancers with GREAT horns and "double Flute" arrangements, and a part VERY reminiscent of the famous tune `Castelláno Que Bueno Usted'!...
A FANTASTIC, UNIQUE and VERY INSPIRED tune with NICE Bongo work by Luis Mangual ALL THE WAY THROUGH!

2.La Muláta is one of this album's 3 songs written by old Puerto-Rican Tres-guitarist Mario Hernández.
This old style of 1950's/60's Cuban Salsa tune is VERY FUN and danceable, and is given here a more modern 1970's touch, obviously.
While it isn't particularly the most musical or melodic tune, it's STILL a FINE tune!...
