Why you'll love it...

To multiple generations of fans, [Héctor] Lavoe would become the greatest salsa vocalist of all time, a barrio poet who spoke to the kids on the street while honoring a legacy of musical traditions. Posthumously, he’d be enshrined as a popular hero throughout Latin America.

Lavoe’s third solo album, Comedia, topped Billboard’s Latin Albums chart after its release in 1978, with “El Cantante” appearing on salsa singles charts. The track remains inseparable from the story of the singer’s intense, musically influential and too-short life. He will be forever known as “El Cantante de los Cantantes” – “The Singer of Singers.”
