Puerto Rican vocalist Hector Lavoe is remembered as one of the most important proponents of salsa music, giving it life and relevance across the 60s and 70s both as frontman for the Willie Colón band, and - as debuted on 1975's La Voz - as a solo artist in his own right. Nearly five decades later, salsa and boleros are still hot to trot, and this tasty 180 gram pressing, mastered lovingly from the original tapes, stands as a brilliant document of a sound and an era. - Flying Out


La Voz is Hector’s debut solo album after the split with Willie Colón. His versatility as a vocalist and sonero is on display as he goes from boleros to Salsa with ease. The album features many band members from Willie Colón’s original band.

The track Mi Gente is an all-time classic and features an anthemic chorus that has become a theme for Latin unity. The songs El TodopoderosoRompe Saraguey, and Paraiso de Dulzura are also stand outs making this album well worth its price of admission.

Pressed on 180 gram vinyl with all-analog mastering from original tapes.
