Reissue of Willie Colón's 1970 Fania Records LP - limited to 2,500 worldwide - it has been remastered from the original analog tapes by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio and pressed on festive translucent red vinyl. Both members of the Fania All-Stars, trombonist Willie Colón and singer Héctor Lavoe were instrumental in popularizing salsa in the United States. The dynamic duo collaborated for seven years, releasing a total of 10 albums together, and this vibrant 1970 title is one of their most beloved. To this day, there's not a Puerto Rican Christmas party in New York, San Juan, and beyond that isn't heated up by this irresistible medley of holiday tunes. Featuring cuatro master Yomo Toro, who permeates the recording with authentic Puerto Rican folk, plus members of the Fania All-Stars, including the great bandleader Johnny Pacheco, Asalto Navideño is one of the most soulful albums ever made by Lavoe and Colón. In fact, its popularity ushered in a follow-up - Asalto Navideño, Vol 2. - just two years later. The album also includes the hit single "La Murga," a year-round staple across Latin American dance floors.
