good look at what led up to concert from Rumble in the Jungle seen in "When We Were Kings"
This film contains some of the most electric Salsa performances (Celia Cruz in all her mid 70's glory!)ever captured on celluloid. Due to lost masters, the DVD makers labored to even get what is shown in the course of 83 mins (50 or so devoted to concert footage from a Yankee Stadium show). Quality is not great but the music makes it worth your while. Besides Fania w/ Celia (in her first live collaboration with the group) and other guests including Jorge Santana (Carlos' bro), see El Gran Combo - the great Puerto Rican Salsa band. For your own copy try lightintheattic.net. Also "Fania All Stars in Africa" and "Our Latin Thing" all directed by Leon Gast, director of WWWK.
