AllMusic Review by

This is a great Valentín collection that has superb sound and offers a more comprehensive look at his Fania material (1966-1972) while still concentrating on his earlier flügelhorn playing. The record has lots of snap, crackle, and pop as the mid-'60s meet the early '70s. Recommended tunes are "Batman's Bugaloo," "Margarito," "Maína," and "Zip Zap." Vocals are by Marcelino "Junior" Morales, Frankie Hernández, and Marvin Santiago.
