A five-LP commemorative box set, the definitive Tito Puente collection!

Limited to 5,000 sets worldwide; each set includes a Certificate of Authenticity

Collectible book-like package with detailed, first-hand liner notes

Includes unpublished photos and memorabilia plus outtakes and previously unreleased album artwork

Quatro — The Definitive Collection is unlike any other Tito Puente collection released before. 
This 180-gram, five-LP collection is focused on Puente's legacy as a bandleader, percussionist, composer, and arranger, and the four albums that defined him as the "King of Latin Jazz." They are Cuban Carnival, Dance Mania, Night Beat and Revolving Bandstand. The set also includes a fifth LP featuring Puente's biggest-selling single "Ran Kan Kan" in addition to never-before-released outtakes of "Pa' Los Rumberos," that Puente recorded while he was an RCA recording artist back in the mid- to late-1950s. "Ran Kan Kan" is newly remastered, along with the B-side title, "Timbal Y Bongo."

Included features: Cuban Carnival contains its original artwork. Dance Mania was Tito's best-selling album of all time. Night Beat became the benchmark album for many Latin Jazz albums that followed. Revolving Bandstand is rereleased for the first time with its original artwork and liner notes. Altogether there are 48 total tracks on this set totaling more than three hours of music. A must for any Tito Puente fan!

Tito Puente a latin legend

Reviewer: Herm
This limited edition should be part of every music collector. Definitely, it shows the art of Mr. Puente in every music genre of the time but it could not be considered his definitive collection. This box only covers his RCA years, which could be considered his golden era. Mr. Puente recording catalog surpass more than a 100 albums on labels like RCA, Tico, Picante & Fania. I will proudly recommend this collection to everyone. This collection will transport you to a latin ballroom in the 50's. Believe me!
