The Best of Dance Mania

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Adam Greenberg
Something of a re-release of the Dance Mania albums that Tito Puente released in the '60s, this album includes all of the master takes those included on the albums as well as a large number of outtakes.

Puente always tried to keep a nice clean arrangement, and this helps to show his vision. The highlights are far too many to mention separately -- they encompass basically every one of the master takes about half of the songs on the album. As an added treat for listeners, this is also the debut recording of vocalist Santitos Colon. Pick it up if you're at all interested in what Tito Puente could do in the late '50s and early '60s.
