Montanez's forays in the 1980s might have suffered the same fate as many salsa acts, as the merengue craze hit the island quite hard. Nonetheless, this material would yield more appreciation in later times. It would be a matter of a few years before the singer's fortunes would turn to even greater rewards. The material here is quite good; "El Fuego Quemó," "Ella," "Boca Mentirosa," "Se Acabó el Evento," and the obligatory El Gran Combo medley are attractive enough in any salsa collection. A must-have for Montanez-philes.
