The Best of Tito Puente & His Orchestra, Volume 1
1992: RCA 3369-2-RL
Of course Id heard Tito Puentes work before I bought this CDits almost impossible to not have heard SOMETHING of his, with over 100 albums issuedbut it was Mambo Gozón which finally hooked me. I first heard it at the Canterbury (on top of Capitol Hill in Seattle), where the waitress was alleviating the boredom of a slow night by playing it a few times in a row on the jukebox.
