At £3.50 for 50 classic tracks it's impossible to find a better value and broader introduction to the golden days of Cuban music. The choice of artists is excellent and many styles are represented here. Play some of the the MP3 samples on Amazon Essential Cuban Anthology (Amazon Edition) if you are not sure and I think you'll buy it straight away.

Please don't forget this is music from an earlier era and not some tacky, synthesiser-filled, hi-tech salsa recorded recently. Don't expect modern recording standards to apply. This music has real class and you could listen to it or play it as background music according to your mood.

Be careful - you may get hooked.

You couldn't make the wrong choice in buying this album if you love the authentic sound of Cuba. This is an album recorded without any synthesizers, which gives it this authentic sound.
My favourite songs are definitely "El Yayabo", "Me Diras Que Sabroso", El Platanal De Bartolo", "Suena Tu Bongo", "Bodas De Oro", "Eso Se Hincha", "Tabelen", "Ven Bernabe", "Francisco Guayabal", "Toque Oyo", "Merengues, No" and "Mambo Nr.5".
A very good mix of Salsa, Mambo, Cha Cha Cha and even Rumba. An album full of the best and most widely known Salsa music componists. Most of the songs are quite old, but they haven't lost any of their sound and sparkle.

This album is absolutely excellent, just like all the others I purchased. It certainly takes me back to the streets of Havana with its mesmerizing magic and sounds of the bongo and other cuban musical instruments. It is highly recommended to new listeners of Cuban music. It is such a pity it has taken so long to discover this magic and re-create the genius of these old timers. Thanks to the American guy who had such a good taste in quality music and faith in those who brought this wonder back to life.

Fantastic artists, a terrific collection, great price, but the quality of these so called digitally remastered recordings was so poor that I could only manage three tracks before ejecting the disc. There is no note in the description describing these as sub-standard or archive recordings so back to Amazon the disc boldly went, toute de suite.

Wipe away winter blues with this excellent compilation. For sound buffs, yes, some tracks sound dated, but for pure joy, buy it!

If you like a bit of seriously funky summertime, bbq type easy listerning music then this is a steal at £3 for 50 tunes.
