El Malo was Colon and Hector Lavoe's first-ever recording, made in 1967 when Colon was a mere 17 years old. Every number's a killer: "Jazzy," "Juana Pena," "Borinquen," "El Malo. Plus boogalu! Track Listing.

El Malo showcases cultural diversity perfectly. The album brought together Cuban guaguanco, son montuno and mozambique, Puerto Rican bomba, and the current craze at the time, boogaloo and shing-a-ling. The latter in particular was becoming hugely popular with Latino youth, but also crossing over into both the black and white communities. Although very young, Willie Colón had all the right ingredients to make his debut album special. A young and energetic band including future Fania All Star timbalero Nicky Marrero and bassist Eddie ''Gua Gua'' Rivera

Despite initial criticism, Colón's album El Malo has become known as one of the first albums to feature the "New York Sound" that sparked a renewed interest in Latin music during the 1970s.
