Celia Cruz – Son Con Guaguanco/La Excitante

With so many fantastic releases in Celia Cruz’s incredibly vast discography, it is difficult to name which release is her best; however, one thing I do know is that this release has been the most heavily played of my collection. The first LP of this double set was recorded with the mighty Alegre All Stars and perfectly showcases their musicianship as well as the vocal talents of the “Queen of Salsa”. The second LP follows up with more impressive cuts and both are sure to please the ears!
