Regalo del Ciego (Blindman's Gift) is a terrific tribute to Arsenio Rodriguez, one of the key figures of Cuban music. The album is one of the cornerstones of son music, which later evolved into salsa. Years after the record's initial release, what still impresses about Regalo del Ciego is its energy and extraordinary musicianship. This may be uptempo party music, but it goes places you'd never expect, and that's what makes it such a fascinating listen.
