No Hay Mejor Review

by Tony Wilds

The album lives up to its title. In addition to "Babarabatiri," "Ran Kan Kan," "Ay, Cariño," and "Kwa Kwa," which have turned up on previous compilations, Puente re-establishes ownership of "Para Los Rumberos" and "Oye Como Va," two hits for rock band Santana. Also included here is "El Cayuco," which was covered by Latin-funk band El Chicano and others. Puente splurged on a textured gatefold for this one. While it is not the most attractive jacket design, the proof of its pride and confidence is in the listening. There is no better.
