This album is absolutely untouchable. Anyone who buys this album would have to buy two! one to listen two and one to frame and place on the wall...it is classic and carefully crafted to perfection. Every song provides a seductive danceable beat. This album is straight from deep within the heart of the powerful music of the caribbean. Los Van Van are the kings of cuban music, their style is uniquely flavorful. This album is a real jewel, the collection is majestic, "Ay Dios Amparame", to any Van Van fan these words are nearly sacred. This title is one of their best known, with its profound lyrics (parts of the song are of a poem by the great poet Eloy Machado), and the clear unbelievable vocals of Mayito Rivera, not to mention the heavenly instrumentation, make for a beautiful song and perfect performance. Van Van have kept a tradition over the last 30 years to make their own made which has remained intriguingly musical, incredibly tight rythmically, and untouchable when it comes to just about everything else. They are undoubtedly the masters of cuban music. Anyone who has never heard of Los Van Van before must try them out, (your feet won't be able to keep themselves from dancing), and you'll find yourself singing along with every song, (even if you don't know what they're saying). And for anyone who is familiar with them, you've got to get this album, Que Palo Es Ese, Ay Dios Amparame, Que Tiene Van Van....and much more, this collection is magical. If you are new to cuban music you've got to have this album, if you are an old timer, you 've go to have this album. It's got a lot to offer everyone. It is pure musical genius...This album is rich!

THE BEST OF LOS VAN VAN- LOS VAN VAN
on 7 July 2001 - Published on Amazon.com
Great compilation by BMG/MILAN of late 60's,70's & 80's recorded hits by "LOS VAN VAN". Top Van Van hits like "Hoy Se Cumplen Seis Semanas", "La Titimania", the funky "El Baile Del Buey Casao","Que Palo Es Ese", "Deja La Boberia", etc. make this CD probably the best compilation of Los Van Van released in the 90's. In my opinion the only "ingredient" missing in this compilation was to leave out the 80's Van Van hit "Sandunguera". Had they included this hit song, this compilation would've easily gone gold or platinum!

I still think nothing compares to the sound of the "Gran Combo", still like this cd though. I do some DJ's and will play some of the tunes over the radio waves, Thanks Again, JAG
