This may not be the original pressing, as it says 1987 on the back and the Areíto number pegs it as being 1983. In any case, it's the first LP with Tony Calá singing, although he had previously sung on the singles El son de claro and Cuida'o con la percusión. The first song has a funny story which might have been a tragic one. The band was on tour when a torrential rainstorm engulfed them and the had to stand on top of the bus to keep from drowning.

Five of these songs can be found on La historia de la Ritmo, Vol. 2. See our CD section for more details.
