LIGHT POPS IN A FEW SECTIONS, NOTHING "DISTURBING!" HEAR !! LABELS CONDITION: NM COVER CONDITION: STRONG VG NO SPLITS...HUMIDITY STAINS ...SEE SCAN REMARKS: (FROM THE FANIA WEB SITE:) Even though she has been denied the exposure and recognition enjoyed by Cuban divas such as Celeste Mendoza, La Lupe and Celia Cruz, Puerto Rico's Yolanda Rivera is one of the most versatile singers in Afro-Caribbean music. Rivera recorded with La Terrífica, but it was with La Sonora Ponceña that she produced her best work. In 1977, El Gigante Del Sur (Inca 1054) marked her debut with the orchestra led by Quique and Papo Lucca, sharing the bill with singers Miguelito Ortiz and Luigi Texidor. The following year, Texidor would become a member of Bobby Valentín's band, thus allowing for the return of vocalist Tito Gómez to the Ponceña fold. On her first Ponceña recording, Yolanda displays her versatility on the classic bolero from the Cuban filin movement “Soy Tan Feliz,” composed by José Antonio Méndez, and the merengue “Si No Me Meto” by Francisco Alvarado “Chalina” - the story of Marcela, a woman who looks for her beloved Joaquín at the Cantera de Ponce, beating him up when she finds out that he was busy partying. And yet, Yolanda's most powerful cut on El Gigante Del Sur is the guaguancó “Rumba En El Patio.” Here, she proves her talent as an authentic sonera, able to improvise like the best names in the genre - a worthy succesor of Luigi on La Sonora's most danceable numbers. Even though he would record again with the Sonora during the '90s, Luigi's farewell was a respectable affair. On El Gigante Del Sur, he lent his voice to the hits “Boranda,” “Noche Como Boca ‘E Lobo” and “Omelé.” It was radio DJ Guillo Droing who named La Sonora Ponceña as "The Giants From The South." Boasting a superb arrangement by Papo Lucca, "Boranda" is a salsified version of a song by Brazilian composer Eduardo Lobo. According to Lucca, it was Panamanian singer Rubén Blades who translated the lyrics into Spanish. A prophetic narrative, it talks about a land devastated by draught. Papo's solo on the electric piano, coupled with his vocal scatting, is one of his most memorable contributions to the history of salsa. On “Noche Como Boca ‘E Lobo” by prolific songwriter Tite Curet Alonso, Luigi shines telling the story of a man who has been abandoned by his woman - a tragedy that he compares to an evening devoid of moonlight or stars. Seeped in laughter and dark humor, Luigi's soneos demonstrate that he has been matched only by Marvin Santiago and Cano Estremera in sheer vocal prowess. His legacy of excellence on El Gigante del Sur includes the guaguancó “Omelé,” with outstanding contributions by Luigi and the entire orchestra - a conga solo by Vicente Rivero, the illustrious Little Johnny and the trumpet interplay of Tony, Delfín and Cuchy. Luigi's talent can also be heard on a duet with Miguelito Ortiz - the bolero “Cuando Estemos Viejos” by Dominican/Venezuelan “Billo” Frómeta, founder of the legendary Venezuelan orchestra Billo’s Caracas Boys. Miguelito, who became the Ponceña's star vocalist following the departure of Luigi, performs the son montuno “Yeyey,” a pregón by René Márquez inspired by the many Puerto Rican delicacies made with pork as main ingredient: cuajo, mondongo and patitas. Here, Papo's solo is appropriately mouthwatering. Marked by Yolanda's scats, “La Gotera” is a romantic guaracha that finds Miguelito comparing a sealed water leak on a rooftop with a romantic wound that must heal...THIS LP IS A MEMORABLE CLASSIC!!!

WE USE THE FOLLOWING SCALE FOR OUR STRICT, PLAYED AND/OR VISUAL GRADING OF VINYL: Sealed : Jacket is sealed shut in shrink wrap, disc is sold ungraded or "as is". If you wish I can carefully open the film and send the vinyl separate of the cover…BUT ADVISE! M- : A record in this condition appears absolutely unplayed and will bear no marks, sleeve scuffs, or scratches. We seldom use this grade. VG++ (Excellent) : A record in this condition may have one or two visible imperfections, but these will be of a purely cosmetic nature (i.e. sleeve scuffs or other superficial marks) and will not affect play, of course, no kips or “loud” clicks. A VG++ record will have no scratches. VG+ : A record in this condition will have a few visible imperfections. These may include sleeve scuffs, superficial marks, and light scratches. The presence of a single light scratch is enough for us to grade an otherwise markless record VG+; a VG+ record will have no more than a few such scratches. VG : A record in this condition will show the kinds of imperfections found on VG+ records but in slightly greater numbers. There may be a number of light scratches and other marks, but a VG record will not bear any scratches deep enough to be felt with a fingernail. VG- : A record in this condition will have a number of visible imperfections; the presence of a considerable number of light scratches will force us to give a record this grade, as will the presence of even one scratch deep enough to be felt with a fingernail. G : A record in this condition will have pervasive imperfections of varying degrees including both light scratches and scratches deep enough to be felt with a fingernail.
