"For many Nuyoricans, Christmas wouldn’t be complete without the classic 1971 salsa album Asalto Navideño blasting from the hi-fi as friends and family come by to wish “Feliz Navidad” to loved ones. With its celestial horns and jingling rhythm section, “Canto a Borinquen” pines for the melodies of the old country while trying to make sense of the new. Serenaded by an almost harpsichord-like tres guitar, Hector Lavoe’s angelic vocals describe the agony of longing for home — especially bittersweet during the holidays." -- iTunes Store
