Repro of Joe Bataan's 1971 LP for Fania. "Tracks like 'Muneca' and 'Mambo de Bataan' fall within the canon but their energy (check the former's rat-a-tat-tat bridge) and blowsy trombones add an extra kick, just as the ragged loose ends in the vocals don't detract from the locked-down-in-clave-city pocket of 'Aguanta La Lengua.' 'Magic Rose' has a brassy trombone solo over a strong piano hook that's off-kilter from the Latin norm, but totally killer at hip level, while 'Chili Beans' is just a fine example of a lean, clean Latin soul instrumental.... a lot of strong performances that illuminate the late-'60s Latin soul era." --All Music
