AllMusic Review by

Richie Ray and Bobby Cruz get together for a live recording that magnificently captures the moments of joy of their most productive years, with the support of a superb band composed of Puerto Rico's finest musicians. Richie Ray's musicianship remains as fresh as ever and Bobby Cruz's tone seems untainted after all these years. This exciting production delivers the goods with aplomb; "Agúzate," "Sonido Bestial," "El Diferente," "Señora," "A Mi Manera" (with special guest Miki Vimari), "Mr. Trumpet Man," and "Juan en la Ciudad" were the obligatory material that kept this band highly active over almost three decades. This recording attests to that excitement as a representative sample of their rapport with one of their favorite followers: Puerto Rico.
