AllMusic Review by

Taking 14 songs from 14 of their specific-artist Pura Salsa collections, Lo Mejor de Pura Salsa is a nice way to get the best of what the series provides without having to buy each of the individual albums (though Ismael Miranda, Tony Vega, Johnny Rivera, and Michael Stuart, among others, all have Pura Salsa records but don't have tracks included on this compilation). The focus of Lo Mejor de Pura Salsa is mostly on salseros who became famous in the '80s, so fans wanting the Fania-era music should look elsewhere, but for those who are interested in hearing some of the better, sweeter (and generally more produced) salsa out there, it ends up being a pretty decent compilation.
