"A revolutionary album full of experimentation and cross-fertilization with a sound unlike that of any other tropical record before or after, which could only have come from the Caribbean region of Colombia and the fertile mind of the band`s leader, Alfredo Gutiérrez El Rebelde del Acordeón. What makes this record unique and a highly sought-after collector`s piece among DJs and aficionados of Colombian music are the innovative arrangements (by Gutiérrez and his saxophone-playing friends Nacor Barón Garcés and Demetrio `Pipe` Guarín) that mix a sax section with electric organ, piano and accordion, and the fact that it contains a killer version of Javier Vázquez`s hard salsa tune `Esa Mulata` as well as salsa versions of Gutiérrez`s earlier vallenato hits `Los Carasucias` and `Bajo El Palo `E Mango`. In addition, there is an interesting hybrid between the boogaloo and the joropo (`La Mezcla` by pianist Edel Manrique) and a fun cover of Dominican accordionist Angel Viloria`s 1950 gem `Yo Bailé Con Josefina` plus another hardcore salsa burner (`Salsa De Monte Adentro`) and a flamenco/salsa hybrid (`Caribe`), both written by Poli Martínez, who used to sing with Climaco Sarmiento. The record kicks off with some local costeño flavor with the paseo `Perdóname Leandro` and on side two the porro `Toro Barcino`. The album cover, though tongue in cheek, must have also caused a stir, as it calls to mind Cuban revolutionaries and combines images of violence and music in a provocatively satirical way
