Album Review

Ironically, El Gran Combo turn in quite a memorable effort with Amame, despite the romantic/erotic wave that was hitting the salsa trend in the late '80s. Rafael Ithier wisely used arrangers Louis Garcia and Ernesto Sanchez to add extra color and variations to a firmly established sound. The title tune, "Aguacero," "Brindis a la Vida," and "Todo Bien" are gleeful tunes, the antithesis of the not-so-durable erotic trend that evolved into a strictly romantic styling. An interesting variation of the familiar, tastefully done. ~ José A. Estévez, Jr., Rovi

1989 and El Gran Combo

I've been looking for this album on CD for awhile. This album totally brings back memories of my first solo trip to PR. My parents and I went almost every summer but that one magical and memorable summer (a few weeks before Hurricane Hugo hit), I spent 2 weeks with relatives and loved every moment driving all over the island playing this tape. The music is fantastic, so upbeat and melodic and still very vibrant even some 18 years later. I 100% recommend it!!
