Unit price/ per
We present this live album to commemorate the 45th anniversary of the publication of SIEMBRA in 1978 under the Fania label. This work represented my second collaboration with Willie Colón and is still considered the best-selling album in the history of the "Salsa" genre. This recording represents the first time that the seven songs of SIEMBRA have been interpreted in sequence, as they were originally presented. Never, not even during the period of our union with the Willie Colón Orchestra, were the songs that make up this album performed in public one after the other. The songs in this live version keep the same tone in which they were originally recorded and the arrangements are basically the same ones used in 1977-78..
To those who will listen to this album for the first time, I hope you like it. To repeat offenders, a hug.
We present this live album to commemorate the 45th anniversary of the original release of SIEMBRA in 1978 under the FANIA label. That recording represented my second full collaboration with Willie Colón and it is still arguably considered as the biggest seller in the "salsa" genre history. This recording represents the first time that the seven songs that comprise SIEMBRA are executed in sequence, in front of an audience. Not even during my association with Willie Colón was this done. The songs on this album are presented in the same tone they were originally recorded in, and used the same basic arrangements from 1977-78.
To those who will be listening to SIEMBRA for the first time and to those who have been with us from the beginning, thank you!!
