Crime Pays Review

by John Bush

A short yet well-chosen anthology of Willie Colón's early recordings, Crime Pays includes each of his biggest hits -- "Che Che Colé," "Guisando," "El Malo," "Juana Peña," "Jazzy" -- from the late '60s and early '70s. Though the Colón/Lavoe gangster-style cover earns bonus points for style, most fans of Willie Colón will want all of the LPs these tracks were compiled from.
