AllMusic Review by

Primal! is an appropriate title for this compilation of Pérez Prado's initial RCA recordings available on CD for the first time. These 26 songs capture the King of Mambo at his hottest, and include such tracks as "Go Go Mambo," "José," "El Bombero (The Fireman)," "Broadway Mambo," "Pachuca," and "Tacuba." If you want raw Latin rhythms that make Prado's later pop material seem tame by comparison, pick up this recommended set.
