Overview

Héctor Lavoe's third solo release benefited from Willie Colón's production, Rubén Blades agreeing to give his new composition "El Cantante" to him (Lavoe promptly made it his own), and the varied arrangements of Colón and Luis "Perico" Ortíz. But setting all that firepower aside, it's still true that nobody could make a song sing quite like Héctor Lavoe (there was a reason they called him "La Voz"), and his commanding air over this record made it his third straight classic. As on the previous two, Lavoe and company strive for stylistic range more than anything else, adding a heavy syrup of strings to "El Cantante" for an elegant touch, getting streetwise for "Bandolera," and finishing the album with a surging montuno titled "Songoro Cosongo."
