Joe Acosta Dominates The Billboard Charts For 21
Weeks with his hit single “I Need Her” in 1971.

The single “I Need Her” peaked the number #1 spot for over 21 weeks dropping several singles from Fania’s greatest artist to the bottom of the chart and some off the chart. Amazingly, Acosta’s young musicians along with vocalist Joe Cruz dominated many hard-hitting artists. Not even the late Ray Barretto (1929 – 2006) the King of Hard Hands with his “Arrepientete” could triumph over Joe Acosta’s single “I Need Her.” Willie Colon tried diligently with “Abuelita” but remained in 5th place.

Orquesta Harlow came close at number 3 with “Arsenio” and the King of Latin Soul, Joe Bataan at number 2 with his sweet soul tune “This Boy.”

On August 14th 1971 the late Ralfi Pagan was number one with his hot Latin Soul hit “Make it With You” but for only two weeks. Paul Ortiz’s “Tender Love” achieved the number one spot for a couple of weeks dropping Pagan’s single to number 2.

On September 18th Joe Acosta’s “I Need Her” trampled everyone down to the bottom of the chart and remained victorious in the number one position for over 21 weeks. It was all Joe Acosta.

Due to financial difficulties, Ghetto Records an independent record label only printed limited copies of many of their singles and LPs including this hot Latin Soul, swinging Salsa and Latin Jazz LP by Joe Acosta.

History is about to repeat itself again. Latin Soul Records will only press limited copies of this Special “Limited Edition.” On September 2006, Latin
Soul Records will only release the “Standard Edition” which will not include the bonus track “All Night Long,” the 3 page booklet, the video montage, Joe Acosta's autograph, additional linear notes and the 150 classic band photos and club performances. The “Standard Edition” will
be the original LP as it was released in 1971.

Here is your chance to own the “Limited Edition” of this masterpiece and super rare recording by Joe Acosta’s Orchestra in 1971, “THE POWER OF LOVE.”

The suggested retail price will be approximately $16.95 when released to retail outlets. Will not be available in stores until September 2006.

REAL Salsa Dura of the real sense
I just found this CD after I downloaded the tracks on mp3 I really think it's a better recording than the real one in 1970's. Wow waht a sound the trombones and congas are swinging. The song with the guitar is real funky and I salute this band for innovatioon so advanced in the 70's

Lo Mejor de la salsa de ayer
Este album es para los fanaticos de la salsa fuerte. El disco tiene el sabor conocido de Joe Acxosta, pero yo diria que a distincion de otros albumes, este es mas furioso. Joe Acosta (Pianista) le da un estilo distinto, differente, y muy agresivo al ritmo que jamas he escuchado. Esto es lo que hace que este disco valga el dinero que piden y mas.
Ademas de eso la introduccion de numeros en ingles le da un sabor distinto a la salsa.


great sound in audio and the band is swinging.


i love this cd!
This cd is for any salsa lover!!it is salsa from the 70's and a very good quality cd!anyone who loves salsa will appreciate this cd.there are fast rhythms and slow rhythms to suit your taste.but i fell in love with this cd so thankyou
