The Good, The Bad, The Ugly
CD (Fania Codigo 509135), Released 1975; Re-Issued 2012
Produced by Willie Colon
Arranged by Marty Sheller & Willie Colon
Editor's Pick:
Vocals by Willie Colón and Héctor Lavoe and Ruben Blades. Coro: Ada Chabrier, Jose Mangual, Ruben Blades, Willie Colon, & Ernie Agosto...
"Features a variety of styles -- some traditional ('Dona Tona'), some experimental -- and excellent musicianship. Teams Willie with Hector Lavoe and Rubén Blades (as well as Yomo Toro -- who excels on this release -- and Willie's band). Includes a swinging, Brazillian-flavored tune ('El Cazangero') by Rubén." (Nina Lenart, 94/95 Catalog)

We are happy to offer the new digitally remastered reissues from the classic salsa label, Fania. Brought to you by Codigo, which, over time, will be reissuing the entire catalog with improved sound and superb liner notes too - some of which are written by's own virtually resident scholar, John Child. Many of these new reissues have been remastered by Jon Fausty or Bob Katz. (DR, 2012-04-13)
