AllMusic Review by

True I'm biased, being a stone Cuban music freak -- but this has to be the finest recording of the lot. It's an anthology covering roots Afro-Cuban voices-and-percussion guaguancó, the gorgeous guitar bands sones, and even some of the rare Euro-Cuban puntos. And not a Usual Suspect in the lot, though the descendants of two great bands of the Golden Age are here: Septeto Nacional and Orquesta Sublime. A perfect release: Wonderful music by groups that aren't all over the import bins. (65:23)
