Historic Photo of the Day: the Fania All Stars

I remember!! That’s one incredible achievement … Proud to be Puero Rican!


War Against All Puerto Ricans: Revolution and Terror in America’s Colony

The Fania All Stars were formed as a fusion of the best bandleaders and singers from seven orchestras, complemented by some individual veteran musicians from the New York scene.

From 1968 till the late 1980’s, the Fania record label produced the most popular salsa music in the world.

Following sell-out concerts in Puerto Rico, Chicago and Panama, the All-Stars made their first appearance before more than 50,000 spectators at New York’s Yankee Stadium on August 24, 1973.

The talent included Celia Cruz, Héctor Lavoe, Cheo Feliciano Ray Barretto, Willie Colón, Ruben Blades, Larry Harlow, Johnny Pacheco, Ismael Miranda, and Pete “El Conde” Rodríguez,

Live at Yankee Stadium was included in the second set of 50 recordings in the List of recordings preserved in the United States National Recording Registry, solidifying the Fania All-Stars as “culturally, historically and aesthetically significant” to the cultural history of the United States.

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
