A wonderful 2CD overview of the best years of the legendary Willie Colon – one that traces him from his boogaloo roots in the late 60s, to salsa superstardom in years to come! The package is a really thoughtfully-done collection that features key tracks from all aspects of Willie's career at the time – sides recorded for both Fania and Vaya Records, showcasing the full range of all of his different projects and concepts over the years. Vocalists include Hector Lavoe, Ruben Blades, Ismael Miranda, and Willie himself – and the package also features track by track notes on each tune! Titles include "Fuego En El Barrio" – Willie's very first single on Futura
Records – plus "El Malo", "El Titan", "The Hustler", "Calle Luna Calle Sol", "Pirana", "Apartmento 21", "Juancito", "Biata", "Siembra", "Chinacubana", "Toma Mis Manos", "Corazon Guerrero", and "MC2".
