Plante Bandera (1975)
THIS IS A GREAT MASTERPIECE OF TOMMYMOST OF THE MUSIC IN THIS GREAT CD WAS COMPOSED BY THE GREAT PUERTORRICAN COMPOSER TITE CURET ALONSO, WHICH HIS MUSIC WAS RECENTLY RELEASED FREE TO BE PLAYED IN MOST SALSA RADIO STATIONS THROUGHOUT PUERTO RICO. THIS IS DEFINITELY A GREAT ALBUM AND CHAMACO RAMIREZ DID A GREAT SINGING JOB. ALL OF THEM PASSED AWAY, BUT THIS MUSIC STILL LIVES.

||Mountain Music of Puerto Rico (2003)
Great Puertorrican jibaro musicThis great production contains all of the ingredients of jíbaro music to spice up the rhythm of this great CD. Here we have singers(Better known as "trovadores") improvising "décimas" and "aguinaldos" at their best: Miguel Santiago from Comerio, P.R. and Karol Aurora De Jesus from Vega Alta, P.R. This type of music in Puerto Rico is heard during the christmas festivities, even though it can be heard all year round. I got this great CD, thanks to CD Universe and I highly recommend it for those who love puertorrican "trova" music, which in my opinion, it should be heard all year round and not wait until christmas to play it.

||Fania All Stars|
Live At The Cheetah Vol. 1 (1971)
The real pioneers in Live SalsaJohnny Pacheco along with Jerry Massucci met their goals in creating (in my opinion), the best salsa orchestra of the world. Not only they met their goals, but they wrote the history of salsa in the 70's, 80's, 90's and today's salsa. Fania All Stars was the pioneer in recording their salsa concerts live which attracted many salsa fans from all around the world. Even though some of the musicians have passed away, like the legendary Héctor Lavoe, Ray Barretto, Pete "Conde" Rodríguez, Héctor Casanova and the former producer Jerry Massucci, their music have written the history of salsa. Fania is a synonim of salsa; a very recognized trademark of salsa fans around the world.

Fania All Stars Live At Yankee Stadium 2 (1976)
Better than Volume 1Volume 1 was great, but this is even better. I spent a hard time trying to find this CD, but thanks to CD Universe I have this album which I consider a Salsa Classic. Fania is the true creator of the 70's salsa genre which is transmitted to today's salsa fans. The songs in this album are great and inspiring and a delicious live sound. I truly recommend this album.

Las Flores de la Vida (2000)
Compay Segundo ForeverEven at the age of 90+ years old, he coul play the "harmónico" like a virtuoso and sing as a second voice. I think that even though he passed away at the age of 95, his music will never die. Young people should hear this type of music. I think this is the best gift Máximo Francisco Repilado Muñoz (Compay Segundo) left us. I have to say that this is one of the best cuban and worldwide musicians after the great "Beny Moré". The sound quality on this CD is great and the bass sound is powerful.

Strikes Back (1987)
"This is my type of salsa music"The musical arrangements in this CD are great. I'm a salsa lover but there is something about salsa music that really inspires me; and that's salsa played with trombones. I like this type of percussion in salsa, plus the songs and the sounds in this CD are great. I have to say that this is one of the best salsa albums ever recorded by Héctor Lavoe. "Indeed, PONCE ES PONCE". I love this song very much because my girlfriend is also from Ponce, which was also Hector's native puertorrican town.

||Rey en la Habana (2005)
Very funny, Hilarious and sexy comedyI loved the cuban slang used in this movie and the way Alexis Valdes transforms into this "gallego" guy from the spanish mafia to finally become as the film's name; "A King in the Habana". I really love the strong language used in this film and the bicycle scene doing a parody of E.T. I laughed my heart out on this scene. In general, this is the best cuban and spanish film I've ever seen. I really recommend it for those who like spicy comedy.

Heart of Chicago 1967-1997 (1997)
The best Chicago AlbumThis is definitely a great album and a great buy. Every song in this album is great. Peter Cetera has a great voice and every time I hear the CD it makes me sentimental and makes me remember my High School years. I could play it over and over again and never get tired of replaying it. My favorite song is "IF YOU LEAVE ME NOW" because it brings back memories of my first girlfriend. I definitely recommend it. You're gonna love it.

The best plena music I've ever heard.This is indeed great plena music. The music is great. The mix of the so called "pleneras"(better known as the hand congas) along with the trombones gives this CD a great sound. The CD contains music sang by the famous puertorrican "JIBARO" singer Andrés Jiménez and also a virtuoso "CUATRO" player Quique Domenech participating together on the song "CANTARE A PUERTO RICO".
This is one CD that you must have for the christmas festivities. I play it every day. You're going to love it.
