Hector was, is, and always will be "El Cantante de los Cantantes". This CD contains the phenomenal "Periodico de Ayer" which has become a timeless classic. " Hacha y Machete", another classic, is a powerhouse dance tune. There are other great dance numbers and a collection of Salsa Music is not complete without this CD. Buy it today and experience a tiny piece of history from the man whose name rings synonomous with Salsa.

As a long time Lavoe fan (since birth nearly 28 years ago) I had to respond to this review. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but are you kidding me? Hector Lavoe is the greatest Salsa singer of all time. Punto! Final! Se acabo! His vocals are legendary. Today's singers strive to mimic la voz de Lavoe. No offense, but maybe you need to listen to more salsa in general or more Lavoe in particular to truly grasp the greatness of this man's voice, passion, and improvisational talent. You cannot listen to Calle Luna Calle Sol, Triste y Vacia, Todo Tiene Su Final, or Sonando Despierto, and not recognize how gifted Lavoe is vocally. It just doesn't get any better than Hector.

The remastering process hasn't been kind to this classic recording. It sounds muffled and tiny - nothing like the vinyl or, sad to say, its first cd reincarnation. Obviously, the folks at quality control let this one get by. Whatever source material Emusica used for this reissue still does not exculpate the remaster engineer for doing such a lousy job.
Informed sources tell me that there was talk of giving this cd a "face-lift" sometime in the future. But don't hold your breath. Until then, this is all we have.

Codigo did a terrible job on this remastered CD. Fania should really get it together and solve this issue. This is the third time being remastered and each time it gets worst. They cant seem to get it right.

This such a beautiful album, but the sound quality is horrible. I peronally had to transfer from vinyl to digital to get the right sound. And everyone know how much of a pain in the tail it is to filter out a vinyl record.

I dont know if they are using a tape to do the job, maybe a vinyl i dont know. one this is for sure its not from the master disc. I can tell immediately from the poor sound quality.

For anyone looking to just have it and collectors go ahead. But it wont meet your demands if you have great ears.

The immortal Hector LaVoe had an illustrious musical career, be it once with Willie Colon (El Malote) and his band or as a solo artist with his own orquesta. This was his second solo album, following in the footsteps of "La Voz" (recommended). The band members (some of them) were in Colon's orquesta, but proved with LaVoe they still had the muscle to back him up as he belted out such b-busters as "Vamos A Reir Un Poco", the original full version of "Periodico De Ayer" (Yesterday's Newspaper), "Hacha Y Machete" and "Felices Horas", as well as Boleritos like the title track that says "Esperando a un amor, que nunca llega" (Waiting for love that will never come). Unfortunately in some cases, that song rings true. The album ends with "Mentira" (Lie). Self-explanatory. LaVoe met his demise in 1993 from drug-related AIDS, possibly due to the accidental shooting death of his son. The speculation was that in Puerto Rico, LaVoe "jumped" out of a hotel window from despair over his son, but to this day it was never confirmed nor proven. Fame had its price and LaVoe lost control. Fania ruled the decades up to the watered down salsa (if I can call it the same) that we are all stuck with. These so-called performers have a lot to learn from the actual legends. Any or all of LaVoe's music will beat them, hands down! It's time to let the lesson begin! To these knuckleheads I say to learn from La Voz, dammit! (Fania/Codigo)

This is a classic salsa album, but it's not Hector's best... that goes to Comedia. But it does have the greatest salsa song of all time "Periodico de Ayer" and for that alone you need to have it.

On the remastering... it is well known that Massucci/Pacheco did not take great care of the master tapes when the empire collapsed. I would imagine that they were not able to get the master tapes in good condition or if at all. As such I highly recommend that you get the LP from the 70's. I have a copy I purchased in great condition and it sounds amazing on my decent sound system. Just an alternative. Also, I highly recommend that you steer away from LP reissues of 70's salsa albums because i've done comparisons and the sound just isn't up there with the originals.

Also, to say Hector Lavoe is the greatest sonero of all time is up for debate. Would you seriously suggest that Ismael Rivera and Cheo Feliciano should not be considered? I too love Hector but I feel sometimes people get carried away. They all were distinct in their voices and musically. Sometimes I feel Hector more, sometimes Rivera, sometimes Cheo... just depends on my mood.

This album will forever be etched as one of the best Salsa recordings ever. Immortal hits such as "Periodico De Ayer", "Hacha Y Machete", "Vamos A Reir Un Poco", and "Felices Horas" are featured here. Produced by his best friend, the great Willie Colon, De Ti Depende is an unbelievable album and is a must have for any Lavoe fan and Salsa collectionist. Esto es Salsa Dura de Pura Sepa y Jibaro como El Coqui. QUE VIVA EL CANTANTE DE LOS CANTANTES!
