Johnny Pacheco y Su Charanga (remastered)



Ok! There are thousands of great Afro-Caribbean recordings out there but this one by Johnny Pacheco is an absolute, "Gotta Have". Every tune is a smoker. Pacheco is at the very peak of his powers and so are the other musicians. When released in 1961, this recording was in every single Puerto Rican and Cuban household in New York City, Puerto Rico and Cuba. It was also the very first release by the now defunct Alegre Recording Co. and it is still played at parties and nightclubs to this day. Check out the last track, "Tema de Pacheco" it is an descarga and is OUTSTANDING. The Late Chombo Silva takes a scorching violin solo that has not aged at all. A Classic!!! Highly Recommended!!!
