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