Exact repro, originally released in 1973. "Fuego (released on the Vaya label) continues the soul-jazz of Mongo's Atlantic period but ranges a bit further, into funk and rock. 'Fingers' is a bass-led original with psychedelic guitar recorded to sound as if it's being played several blocks away (much like an early Jimi Hendrix session). 'Crazy Lady' is the other seriously funky track, although neither is essential. The original 'Besame' is a fine, laid-back song in classic Mongo style; there are many other fine -- if not exactly thrilling -- moments, including 'Malcolm X.'" --All Music Guide
