One of the greatest Cuban groups of the late 50s backs up some of the nation's greatest singers – a truly all-star array of talent, wonderfully presented in this set! All tracks here feature backings from the orchestra of Bebo Valdes – and singers include Omara Portuondo, Celeste Mendoza, Pio Leyva, Pacho Alonso, Rolando Laserie, and Amado Guapacha Borcela – vocalists who were helping move Cuban music into much more modern territory at the time, with a mix of soul, emotion, and class that's simply wonderful. As with other excellent titles on the Malanga label, the package is really wonderful – great sound and full notes on the music – and a whopping batch of 25 titles that include "La
Rumba Me Llama", "Una Cierta Sonrisa", "Ladron De Gallinas", "Se Tambalea", "La
Pachanga", "A Tin Na Ma", "Dame Un Chance", "Hoy Se Reir", "Ponme La
Mano", "Me Recordaras", "Imagenes", "Guadalupe
", and "Quie Baila Mejor".
