AllMusic Review by

On New York City's Gema label, El Gran Combo's releases are among the rarer and more authentic Latin soul albums. In addition to six boogaloos, Boogaloo con El Gran Combo has guaracha, son, son montuno, and a bomba. "Shake It Baby" is the liveliest of the boogaloos, and "Combolu" is very hip; all are good if one puts aside hopes for a great, lost hit single. Boogaloo con El Gran Combo is a fine listening album, to be appreciated for its great singing and a true Latin sound. All of El Gran Combo's boogaloo albums are well worth tracking down.
