    100% Essential album includes the classic Acid and The Soul Drummers!

    This is perhaps the single most famous latin album there is, featuring the classic slow and sinuous title track with that killer bassline and trumpet, plus the explosive salsa of 'El Nuevo Barretto' and 'Sola Te Dejare', the funky, catchy boogaloo of 'Soul Drummers', and the Coltrane-inspired deep latin jazz of 'Espiritu Libre'!

    Ray Barretto's Acid stands the test of time as a killer classic album that every music fan should own!
