Editor's note: this one is pretty hit or miss. Some tracks are very good (JAMAQUEATE & HOJAS MUERTAS) but most are just your garden variety island music mostly played in a lounge style. I don't really know what else to say about it other than that. Oh yeah, the last track sounds a little Ricky Ricardo-ish if that makes it any more enchanting for you all.

But let's vacillate mambo is incredible, one of the finest mambos I've ever heard. The wonderful English lyrics, soaring horns, and tight percussion make this a hands down winner: one of the finest examples in the genre.
