Recorded live in New York on Thursday, the 26th of August, 1971.

Gatefold cover.

"On Thursday, Aug. 26, 1971, young latinos from all parts of New York gathered at Cheetah to witness history in the making. On this night, Fania All-Stars were being filmed and recorded 'live' for all the world to see and hear the best Latin music has to offer.

So listen and re-live the excitement of that night, for the sounds you will hear are the sounds of 'El Corazon Latino'...

PS: you must see the movie 'Our Latin Thing' (Nuestra Cosa). The movie is a musical, cultural view of the Latin life style in New York City. Que Viva La Musica!"
