Coming of age in 1960s-70s New York, salsa is the essence of Cuban and Caribbean music: cheerful, brassy, and always danceable. This 14-song sampler looks back on that era with selections by Louie Ramirez ("Feo Como El Oso"), Machito y su Orquesra ("Mi Ritmo Llego"), Ray Martínez ("Campesina"), Wayne Gorbea y su Conjunto Salsa ("Dejame un Lado"), Fruko y sus Tesos ("Fruko A Lo Compadre"), Zaperoko ("No Quedo Ni El Gato"), and Orquesta Revolucíon '70 ("Con El Agua Al Cuello").

"This compilation boasts big, bold, beautiful brass parts that will blow you away.... [The disc] offers a great way to dig into one of salsa music's heydays."—PopMatters.com
