I guess it's not that unusual for a soundtrack to be released before the corresponding movie. Talento De Barrio, starring reggaeton's Daddy Yankee is about love, drug dealing and reggaeton music. The movie is due out in September, 2008 but you can listen to the soundtrack today.

9. Tito Puente -'The Complete 78s Vol. 1 1949-55'

From Fania /EMusica comes a great 2-CD remastered set of all Tito Puente's works while with the Tico Label. There are 40 hot tracks for you to enjoy on this first volume. I like to volume concept because it means there will be Vol. 2 somewhere in our future.
