Tell My Rival That I'm Here
Roberto Roena and his orchestra were not Noman's favorite Salseros, but they were good. These guys look like they're having fun, sort of the way the Pips did behind Gladys Knight. And, Noman hopes you enjoy watching their performance as much as he does. It's a silly song, like many if not most: "Tell my rival that I'm here, because I don't want him to say later that I threw a Rumba and didn't invite him." (If you've got a better translation, feel free to comment.) Try the Tito Rodriguez version if this song is to your liking.
