Editor's Pick:
Limited quantities.
Larry Harlow, an original Fania All Star and major presence of the New York salsa scene of the 70s and 80s has produced a ton of records — and not only his own. His credits include Orquesta Flamboyan, Orquesta Dicupe, Sonora Ponceña, Justo Betancourt, Fania All Stars and many others. "Salsa" is one of his best works and was one of the hottest selling salsa records of the 1970s. A must-have. (BP)
"A historical recording which marked the beginning of the use of the word 'salsa' to describe this new urban approach to making and commercializing Afro-Caribbean dance music." — Rudolph Mangual, 98/99 Catalog
"Many fans consider this to be Larry Harlow’s best album. It was one of the best selling salsa discs of the 1970s. Every time I listen to the opening track, 'Yo quiero,' the tres/flute line in octaves gives me chills." — David M. Carp, 98/99 Catalog
"The Salsa LP was the first to contain four Number One hits on one recording, and it had some great Arsenio songs and classic soloists in Ray Maldonado, Charlie Miller and Lewis Kahn." — Larry Harlow, 96/97 Catalog
"Larry Harlow was one musician and bandleader who made Arsenio Rodriguez's music known to the young dance crowds of the 70s. This release, which feels like a loving tribute, features Arsenio's compositions along with Harlow's magnificient big band sound and driving arrangements. " — Nina Lenart, 94/95 Catalog (DR, 2015-03-28)
