Feeling betrayed by Torres, who had wound-down SAR at its peak and relocated the company from NYC to Miami, he refused to record for nearly 16 years, with the exception of providing lead vocals to two tracks on Valdésa Records Presenta Vol. 1: Salsa Sudada (1990). Sang lead on one track of the Caimán All Stars' Descarga Brava 2000! (1999) as a prelude to making a major comeback with his own solo album on Caimán in 2000.
This is a historically important release, as it was Papaito's final recording before he passed away on June 4th of 2000. This veteran sonero, who hailed from Buena Vista, Cuba, has left us on a strong note. With a relaxed, laid-back feel, he sounds great. And just look at this band... all heavy-hitters befitting such a vocalist. With Alfredo Valdes Jr., José Mangual Jr., Nelson Gonzalez, Milton Cardona, Hector "Bomberito" Zarzuela, Russell "Skee" Fansworth, and Junior Vega. Recommended.» (Descarga)
