5.0 out of 5 stars Great album for the novice 7 July 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After hearing a lot about Salsa and wanting to actually hear some music I invested in this box set. At first I was bemused by the styles and rhythms which seemed to meld into one homogenous sound. However after awhile the diversity of the music began to come through and now I'm a convert to the style. This is essentially a set of CD's designed to make you get up and dance (or do something), which must represent excellent value. I certainly have appreciated the good time feel of the music which is enhanced by the way each CD seeks to replicate the increasing intensity of a night in a Salsa club.
As I say I'm no expert on this type of music but have really enjoyed listening to this compilation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Light the match and step back 5 Aug 2003
Format:Audio CD
DJ Lubi - One of the Longest serving and best Salsa DJ's in the UK - has amassed and mission critical album for the Salsa scene accross the UK.
For years to come there will be no better album for beginners in the hundreds of salsa classes across the UK.
Every salsa teacher in the UK has struggled for years to find titles to recommend to their pupils in order to feed the addiction of their students. Now hear it is!!
With CD1 we get the build up, then CD2 cranks up the frenzy and with CD3 we are at a full blown salsa night club. All of the tracks are top quality. Some have been heard in clubs for years!! BUT the point is that now the beginners can get their hands on a CD that provides the music that they would be otherwise denied in their homes.
All hail Lubi!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for beginners! 12 Jan 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Great compilation of danceable salsa, more “salsa dura” than the romantic kind. There some very fast tracks on this CD, so it’s definitely not just for beginners. I go to salsa clubs regularly and some of the tracks here I’ve heard before, others are new to me. As in every compilation there are a few nuff tracks here, but the majority is great. For example, I love the track by Arabella, an artist I’ve never heard off before. With three CD’s under £10 pounds this is excellent value for money!
