Tito Puente

Dance Mania Vol. 1
CD (BMG/Tropical Series 2467), Released 1957; Re-Issued 1991
Arranged by Tito Puente
Vocals: Santito Colón.
"Just awesome music and arrangements with the classics: 'Cayuco,' 'Hong Kong Mambo,' 'Complicacion,' 'Saca Tu Mujer,' and 'Varsity Drag Mambo.'" (Nelson Rodriguez 98/99 Catalog)
"The classic arrangements that would define Tito Puente's big band for decades. Santos Colon's vocals are beautiful. This release was close to the beginning of a prolific 16-year collaboration between Tito and Santos." (Alan James Geik 98/99 Catalog)
"A CD you'll want to dance to and listen to over and over again." (Joe Gaines 96/97 Catalog)
"This album is probably the greatest dance album ever made. Some great arrangements, pure Latin swing with T.P. In his prime, and Santos Colon's vocals. " (Larry Harlow 96/97 Catalog)
"Hot recordings usually get a few months of air play. This album received three years worth. It is TP's best selling LP to date, it has sold millions." (Max Salazar 96/97 Catalog)
"The best recording for dancers and listeners. Big band, full brass and woodwinds. Great T.P. arrangements and performance. Quite a band. A must for every Latin music fan." (Al Santiago 94/95 Catalog)
