"A revolutionary album full of experimentation and cross-fertilization with a sound unlike that of any other tropical record before or after, which could only have come from the Caribbean region of Colombia and the fertile mind of the band's leader, Alfredo Gutiérrez El Rebelde del Acordeón. What makes this record unique and a highly sought-after collector's piece among DJs and aficionados of Colombian music are the innovative arrangements (by Gutiérrez and his saxophone-playing friends Nacor Barón Garcés and Demetrio 'Pipe' Guarín) that mix a sax section with electric organ, piano and accordion, and the fact that it contains a killer version of Javier Vázquez's hard salsa tune 'Esa Mulata' as well as salsa versions of Gutiérrez's earlier vallenato hits 'Los Carasucias' and 'Bajo El Palo 'E Mango'. In addition, there is an interesting hybrid between the boogaloo and the joropo ('La Mezcla' by pianist Edel Manrique) and a fun cover of Dominican accordionist Angel Viloria's 1950 gem 'Yo Bailé Con Josefina' plus another hardcore salsa burner ('Salsa de Monte Adentro') and a flamenco/salsa hybrid ('Caribe'), both written by Poli Martínez, who used to sing with Climaco Sarmiento. The record kicks off with some local costeño flavor with the paseo 'Perdóname Leandro' and on side two the porro 'Toro Barcino'. The album cover, though tongue in cheek, must have also caused a stir, as it calls to mind Cuban revolutionaries and combines images of violence and music in a provocatively satirical way." -Pablo Yglesias, aka DJ Bongohead Presented in facsimile artwork and pressed on 180 gram vinyl.
