||Rey Del Bajo CD (1974)
Hector Faberlle albums A great Bobby Valentín album that features an ample repertoire of old favorites. Tito Rodriguez's "Hay Craneo," "Guaraguao" (based on the popular merengue "Vete Lejos"), Tito Puente's "Cuando Te Vea," and Paquito López Vidal's memorable "Espérame En el Cielo." Very exciting stuff, with the very original Valentín tearing it up as he goes. ~ José A. Estévez, Jr.
