Manolo Monterrey was relatively unknown in his native Cuba yet was one of Venezuela's most famous and beloved singers. Since the Forties, when he formed part of Billo Frometá's orchestra, Billo's Caracas Boys, until he joined Los Melódicos, his fame never stopped growing. The Venezuelan people aptly nicknamed him the "Ciclón Antillano" (The Antillian Hurricane), as this communicative and happy singer occupied a privileged place in the rich family of Cuban guarachero singers, along with Cascarita, Kiko Mendive, Yeyo Estrada and others, who, in the Thirties and Fourties, all marked an era.

This CD presents his most outstanding recordings during the decade he sang with the Billo's Caracas Boys.
