The compilation, Crime Pays, features the very best of the dynamic duo of salsa music, Willie Colón and Hector Lavoe, and their partnership from the 1970s to the early 1980s. Available for the first time on vinyl in decades, these tracks showcase the genius of their partnership in a variety of genres.

The album features 12 tracks including “El Malo,” “Guajirón,” and “Eso se baila así.” Each song testifies to the virtuosity and chemistry between Colon and Lavoe, both of whom are considered legends in the Latin music scene.

The album lyrics, mostly in Spanish, reflect on life, love, and the struggles of the Latino community, adding a layer of social commentary to their music.

Overall, Crime Pays is a must-have album for fans of salsa music, as well as anyone who appreciates great musicianship and unforgettable melodies. 180-gram LP housed in a gatefold tip-on jacket.
