AllMusic Review by

One of Cortijo's most obscure recordings was actually recorded in the early '70s. This offers the opportunity to glimpse the development of this bandleader in his less commercially successful era. Nonetheless, this curious little item is worth the enjoyment. Vocalists Pepito Negrón and José "Che" Delgado give the production the right sense of diversion. Recommendable for an earlier version of C. Curet Alonso's "Tum Bin," the energetic "Tambores en la Noche," and "Prepárate" (also by Alonso). Arrangements are by Jorge Millet. Good luck is very needed in order to find this odd little gem; once you do, it is a gas. Cortijo still has his own brand of magic, after all.
