No one compilation could do an artist of Eddie Palmieri's importance full justice but this indispensable 2-CD set comes quite close. The compilation producers thankfully chose to include tracks from virtually all phases of his career from the 1960s through the '80s and (as such) you get classic hits from the Tico, Alegre, Coco and Fania labels' vaults--all with truly superior sound quality. Of course, Eddie's classic 1960s albums for the Tico and Alegre labels revolutionized Afro-Latin music and they remain undisputed Salsa classics to this day but until they are all reissued...this collection is the best and most comprehensive of Eddie Palmieri's music you can get. To say this 2-CD set is a worthwhile addition to your Salsa collection would be an understatement as (honestly)...it's INDISPENSABLE!!!
