One of the classic latin albums of the 70s this is percussionist Jose Mangual's legendary 1977 tribute to the great Cuban conguero Chano Pozo.The LP kicks off with the monsterous "Manteca 77" and it's smokin' from there on in.Every track is a blinder whether it's the swinging cowbell driven banger "Cuero Na'ma" ,the flying samba "Sambala",the salsa of "Campanero" or the gritty "Guaguanco Chano" this truly is.....All Killer No Filler!
A classic, and a must-have for every serious collector.Highly Recommended.
