Any addition to the Celia Cruz catalog is a good one, and these early sides show Cruz off when her voice was fresh and sweet and she was still trying out things like calypso ("Ipso Calypso"). But interspersed with innocently delivered tracks like "La Rumba Es Mejor" are songs like "Cha Cha La Negra," which plays to exotic northern stereotypes with its echoing vocals.
