History is one of those great 1970s compilations that has just enough perspective to get it right.

Material is drawn from both Tico and Alegre albums, and wide varieties of rhythm, tempos, and style are represented, but not too wide. Salsa fans will find much of interest. “Cuidate Compay” and “Conmigo” in particular are hot dance tracks which still sound fresh and infectious. It may not be correct to call the album a “history” of Eddie Palmieri, but it is a great slice of his best work from the 1960s. It is, at least, a history until Harlem River Drive. History serves well as an introduction to the “Sun of Latin Music, ” but even longtime Palmieri fans may want it in addition to the originals or other compilations.
