Monguito El Unico's 1980s output was quite consistent, but the Cuban salsa vocalist outdid himself with Monguito, one of his strongest albums. This LP boasted the classic "No le Llamen Salsa a Mi Son," which finds Monguito expressing his disdain for the term salsa and asking listeners not to use it to describe the Afro-Cuban son rhythm. Whatever terms you use to describe Monguito's music, this is a fine album. The singer brings plenty of passion and charisma to "No le Llamen Salsa a Mi Son," and he's equally spirited on "Los Secretos del Amor," "Mexico Lindo," and the optimistic "Miren Que Suerte. Produced by Roberto Torres in New York, Monguito is recommended to salseros without hesitation.
