In 1967 Federico Betancourt and his Combo Latino released the first album to use the term salsa in the title: "Llego la Salsa".
Now Federico Junior is carrying the torch for Venezuelan salsa with his group Orquesta Magia Caribeña. Sabroso...

1. Señor Gallo
2. Federico Boogaloo
3. Rosa, La Peligrosa (salsa version)
4. Hay Algo En Ti
5. Rumba Buena
6. El Amor Que Buscaba
7. Pasion Gitana
8. Yo No Se Que Me Paso
10. Te Quiero
12. Señor Gallo (radio version).
