EDITORS’ NOTES

During the holidays, this festive 1985 album from Puerto Rico’s most beloved salsa orchestra is as necessary as coquito. The tempo stays lively as EGC’s rollicking big brass section and multipart harmonies enliven the spirited “Desenfunda” and “El Jibaro Listo.” Island-flavored gems like “La Fiesta de Pilito,” “El Arbolito,” and “Asalto Navideño” celebrate eating plentifully, drinking merrily, and living life the way it’s meant to be lived—overflowing with rhythm and son. So what if you load up on calories? You’ll burn them off dancing the night away.
