Salsa grew out of the revolutionary changes happening to Latin music in New York in the 1960s. From the various Afro-Caribbean genres such as guaguancó, rumba, guaracha, guajira, son montuno, and descarga emerged bugalu, which was popular not only regionally, but in some cases internationally, and eventually the heady brew known as salsa exploded in the 1970s. This entire period was documented by the Fania label. This single-disc comp does an excellent job of documenting the emerging music from the late '60s with its best-known tunes and a few surprises.

Strut begin their programme of Fania albums with a series entitled Fania Essential Recordings, tracing the development of the many genres featured on the label from Latin soul to boogaloo to descarga. The first instalment, Salsa Explosion<, provides a handy introduction to the classic Fania sound through some of the labels major artists including Celia Cruz, Mongo Santamaria, Willie Colon, Hector Lavoe, Ray Barretto and the Daddy of the Fania family, Johnny Pacheco.

In his notes for Salsa Explosion: The Salsa Revolution 1969-1984, a compilation of 15 Fania tracks newly released by the reissue label Strut, journalist Ernesto Lechner hails Fania for producing some of the most moving, heart-wrenching, soulful and devastatingly funky dance music you are likely to find anywhere on the planet. Lechner’s encomium cannot be disputed. Just consider this partial roster of Fania talent: Celia Cruz, Tito Puente, Eddie Palmieri, Willie Colon, Joe Cuba, Ruben Blades, Hector Lavoe, Machito, Ray Barretto, La Lupe, and Pacheco
