Thanks to Gabriel Wilder of Yemayá's Verse for tracking down this cover which is profoundly interesting because it shows the full personnel. We can now identify the members of Manolito y su Trabuco who began with Los Maravillas (Osiris Martínez, Evelio Ramos, Nicolás Gastón, Eduardo Mora, etc.).

El agua coge su nivel was reissued on CD on the Salsa Center label.

This is out of print but used copies can sometimes be found. There's another, similar-looking release on the same label that contains the 8 tracks as Areíto LD-3856 shown above. Beware that jewel case shows two additional tracks that aren't actually on the CD.
