The Legendary El Puma
Alejandra Vernon | Long Beach, California | 02/24/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD isn't an "historia," but a collection of videos in random chronological order from the '80s and '90s, and not like the "Historias" of Leo Dan and Jose Alfredo Jimenez released by the same company (Sony/BMG on Norte). Some of the videos are marvelous, some of them just barely so, but if you're a fan of El Puma, you'll love them all. Jose Luis Rodriguez was born in Caracas, Venezuela in 1943, and rose from poverty as a shoeshine boy to legendary status in the world of Latin music. An actor as well as a singer (he has been in many telenovelas), it's his unique voice that brought him fame, as well as his charisma as a performer. His career started to take off in the late '60s-early '70s, and he has aged like fine wine, keeping his slender physique and looks in prime shape.

He sings 2 Manuel Alejandro/Ana Magdalena songs from 1982, one of them a mega-hit for him, "Dueño de Nada," which is repeated in the last track in Portuguese, and 2 upbeat numbers by Estefano/Kike Santander from '94, with "Boca, Dulce Boca" being a winner with an irresistible beat. Simply exquisite is the most recent video, from '97, and is his collaboration with Los Panchos singing Bobby Capo's "Poquita Fe," from the very successful "Inolvidable" CD. Overall the sound is good, and total running time is approximately 45 minutes.
Track list:
1: "Dueño de Nada"
2: "Culpable Soy Yo"
3: "Boca, Dulce Boca"
4: "De Punta a Punta"
5: "Poquita Fe"
6: "Agarrense de las Manos"
7: "Perdidos en Paris"
8: "La Fiesta"
9: "Te Conozco Desde Siempre"
10: "Diosito Mio"
11: "Dono de Nada" ("Dueño de Nada" in Portuguese)
