(4 out of 5 stars)
4-DVD set, (not DVD-R or RW).
All discs played fine on Region 1 DVD player (set advertised as "region-free").
Full-screen, bare-bones menus.
4 movies included:
1) Our Latin Thing
2) Salsa - The Movie
3) Fania All-Stars: Live In Africa
4) Fania All-Stars: Live In Puerto Rico
The video & audio quality is not great, but given the fact the footage is from the 70s, one can't expect much better.
The real value to this set is the historic performances. "Our Latin Thing" & "Salsa - The Movie" are like the latin versions of Woodstock and Wattstax. "Fania All-Stars: Live In Africa" includes some great performance footage of Celia Cruz.
If the movies had been remastered to restore the video & audio quality to optimal, & if the menus were better, & if bonus material was expanded, this would warrant a five-star rating."
