Historia de la Salsa
is a brief, ten-track compilation of Johnny Pacheco
highlights from the '60s and '70s, extending from his earliest charangas and pachangas ("Oyeme Mulata" and "La Melidía," from 1961) to the last of his great hits from the '70s, "Víralo Al Revés." There's little here beyond what you'd hear in the shortest survey (especially considering the seminal Pacheco
), but it's certainly not a bad place to start at a budget price.
