A thoroughly enjoyable compact disc which includes two 1977 albums by the late Juan Pablo Torres. Though Con Todos Los Hierros was released in January of 1977 and Super-Son in July of that same year, the 20 tracks (ten from each disc) roll as if they were part of the same thematic web. OK, "Y Qué Bien," the first track from the Super-Son LP and eleventh here, is more experimental, as if Kraftwerk somehow slipped into the Latin rhythms, but with the distinctive trombone and production, arrangements and direction of the salsa master. The only vocal work is some scat singing at the end of the rhythmic tune. "Rico Melao" could be Herb Alpert in a mellow mood. More almost subliminal vocals slide underneath the pretty keyboards provided by Jesus Rubalcaba. "Pastel" has some quasi-psychedelic guitar adding a different flavor to the dancey grooves. On the original "Qué Sabroso Majarete" from Con Todos Los Hierros there's the famous "La Bamba" riff which has found its way into many songs as far reaching as Jay & the Americans "Come a Little Bit Closer." A 20-page booklet in both English and en español is descriptive and cleanly presented along with the artwork from the original discs. Torres and his group Algo Nuevo crafted superior music on these recordings and this lovingly packaged re-release is a wonderful presentation of these timeless sounds.
