Chappottin

Sabor Tropical
CD (Antilla 107), Re-Issued 1993
Description:
Cantan Miguelito Cuni y René Alvarez.
Reviews:
"Oh Knock Me Out! Chappottin's great '50s hits, originally on Puchito." (Phil Riggio 98/99 Catalog)
"When Arsenio left Cuba for the United States, Chappottín took over the helm of the conjunto and founded Chappottín y sus Estrellas; basically with the same personnel, but with the addition of new vocalists: Miguelito Cuní, René Alvarez, and, occasionally, the great Cheo Marquetti. Although a big Arsenio fan, I was never that fond of his thick, syrupy, vibrato-laden, multi-voiced vocal arrangements, and I prefer Chappottín's approach. He seems to have given the lead singer more freedom to sing naturally (without all the phony vibrato) and express himself in a less contrived way. Listen to Miguelito Cuni soar on 'Yo Sí Como Candela,' on this, my favorite Chappottín album, and you'll see exactly what I mean. In the early 80's, I had the pleasure of sharing the bandstand with Chappottín in Mexico City, and although Cuní had a bad night (he was nursing a sore throat), it was still a great pleasure to see my idols at close range and hear them perform live. Unforgettable." (Henry Fiol 98/99 Catalog)
"This band influenced me very much and I wore out this recording many times. All these songs were re-recorded by contemporary artists. Great vocals by Cuni." (Larry Harlow 96/97 Catalog)
"This is a budget product that Descarga very fairly sells at a lower price. Don't let the budget label scare you off...it is a great bunch of songs including: 'Canallon,' 'Yo Si Como Candela,' 'Ay Que Canuto,' and 'No Tiene Telarana.' Miguelito Cuni's vocals obligate you to push the repeat button on your CD controls. What phrasing, what a charming and elegant voice, and what mastery of the clave! Coño! Cuni! Wow! What taste!" (Al Santiago 96/97 Catalog)
