The killer dance track here is El Tosco's Rucu rucu a Santa Clara. As you can see from the label, we're getting closer and closer to NG La Banda. Trumpeter José "El Greco" Crego, who would later, along with the two Irakere saxophonists, Averhoff and Velazco, become part of NG La Banda's metales de terror horn section.

There's also a nice homenaje to Beny Moré which forms a nice trilogy with the early Arsenio tributes and Carlos del Puerto's A Chano Pozo from Tierra en trance.
