Timeless album. Chan Chan is the really stand-out song. Takes you anywhere you want, at least somewhere the sun is shining!

A lovely reconstruction of pre-revolution club music but nothing really standout among the tracks.

Probably 7th listen now, and while I didn't fall in love instantly, this grew on me, and I just wanted to take a 50 chevy, smoke a cigar and chill on the beach and listen to this through a really old radio. Well, actually really good headphones, but that sounded fitting.

Swagger and swing like no other. Great music and great concept to revive 1940s Cuban music. Want to watch the film now.

Che soddisfazione sentire, all'epoca, il nome di Ry Cooder sulla bocca di tutti, insieme a quelli di Ibrahim Ferrer, Compay Segundo, Omara Portuondo, Ruben Gonzalez… Disco perfetto; la dimostrazione, inoltre, che la qualità si può vendere a palate, pur in controtendenza con le mode…

This album is an essential for me. This is definitely the kind of album that takes me somewhere, maybe a small Havana cafe or a little stand that sells guava ice cream.

This is MUSIC! One of the most essential records of all times, everyone should hear it. You can't ignore the groove dude! A flagship of Cuban music and good music in general

It lost focus at certain points, and dragged just a bit. But it is a entertaining and interesting look at some great artists and their work.
