En Primera Plana is another impressive effort from Issac Delgado, who emigrated from Cuba to the U.S. via Mexico prior to the album's release. Veteran hitmaker Sergio George is at the helm of En Primera Plana as producer, and he's joined by Alain Pérez, who contributes half of the arrangements. The album's lead single, album opener "La Mujer Que Más Te Duele," features salsa superstar Víctor Manuelle. The confluence of talent on En Primera Plana is well evident, and with time-honed ease, Delgado blazes through one song after another, including a nearly seven-minute medley that follows "La Mujer Que Más Te Duele." Delgado's back catalog is rich with memorable music, no doubt, yet even in relation to his past accomplishments, En Primera Plana is an impressive effort on his part. This CD was nominated for a Grammy award in 2007 for Best Tropical Latin Album.
