El Gran Combo's seventh self-produced album has acquired classic status thanks largely to two legendary tunes: "Un Verano en Nueva York" (composed by Justi Barreto) and "Vagabundo," with the peerless Andy Montañez in top form. One of EGC's top albums, and a boost during the band's stagnant mid-'70s period. The Fania-controlled period seems to be heading toward reconstruction for El Gran Combo; however, the band's easygoing style remains assertive. Highly recommended for fans of El Gran Combo and Andy Montañez.
