Celia Cruz & Johnny Pacheco - Celia & Johnny (2010 remastered from the original analog master tapes) 12-page booklet + bonus pictures. 2010 Codigo Music - 2016 Wagram Music.
Virtually every album Celia Cruz made with Johnny Pacheco was outstanding but this was their very best . Pacheco assembled the best musicians and background singers for this one and the result was sheer musical magic. The all-time classics "Quimbara", "Toro Mata" and "Canto A La Habana" are all here. 1970s salsa at its best!
If you are looking for sounds that will take you back to hot sandy beaches and the sways of the palmas, this is it. Celia and Johnny created this masterpiece in 1974 and created a sound that has carried through the decades. From the hot charisma of Quimbara to the momentus bolero of Vieja Luna. You can experience the exotic feel of the tropics by closing your eyes and listening to these two amazing artists. If you long for a taste of Old School Salsa meets the New World, you have it all here on one CD!
Digitally remastered edition. Wonderful collaboration between the "Queen of Salsa" and the co-founder of the Fania label, a real coup with timeless hits that marked generations of fans (Toro Mata, Quimbara...)
