Salsa Greats, Vol. 2 Review

by John Storm Roberts

This fine compilation dates back to 1978, but most of it not only stands up but is still jumping. Present, and more than correct, are classics like Eddie Palmieri's great "Azucar," and Puente's "Para los Rumberos," Barretto's "Mirame de Frente," Larry Harlow's "Aresnio," Willie Colon's "Che Che Cole," and less familiar numbers by Pacheco, Roberto Roena, Ricardo Ray, Bobby Valentin, and the Sonora Poncera.
