Ruben Blades plays “Pablo Pueblo” (acoustic)

On October 24, 2011 by Will Hermes

A very handsome, 29-year-old Rubén Blades plays a piece of “Pablo Pueblo” on acoustic guitar, with translation, in 1977 (to humbly correct to the YouTube poster).

The original is the lead track from Metiendo Mano!, his first LP with Willie Colón. Their follow-up, Siembra, may be the biggest-selling salsa album in history—though given the accounting practices at the time, it’s hard to tell.

In any case, it’s definitely one of the greatest.
