Live At Yankee Stadium Vol. 1
The date Friday, August 23, 1973, is an historic one for Latin music. Fania All Stars poured 40,000 screaming fans into the Yankee Stadium for an unforgettable night of superb music. If Fania Records' super-band was already famous at the time (thanks to the famed Cheetah concert and the movie Our Latin Thing) this is the concert that made them a legend. A spectacular show put on by a who's who of extraordinary players from the Fania roster including Johnny Pacheco, Ray Barretto, Willie Colon, Bobby Valentin and many more, all in their prime. This album yielded the All Stars their first Grammy nomination. What's more, in 2004, the Library of Congress awarded the two albums the nomination of the 50 Most Important Albums of the 20th Century.
