Joseito Mateo – El Verdadero Rey del Merengue, Riney

José Tamárez Mateo was born in San Isidro in the Dominican Republic
in 1920. I have no idea from what year this LP is. If any one
can tell us, that would be nice. It is an oldie and it’s been
played a lot. The final track has a little damage, you may ask
why post it ? Well, for the simple reason it contains eleven
great tracks, and they sound just fine. Give a fair chance
to the Real King of Merengue; Joseito Mateo.

  1. This LP is fantastic! I can never get enough of the King of Merengue, Joseito Mateo! This is an excellent example of merengue played with a full orchestra. Just listen to a few of the songs accented with timbales. That’s something you never hear in today’s merengue. Beautiful!
