He would certainly win four even more Grammys over his long career. His a lot of recent win remained in 2004 for Across 110th Street (finest salsa/merengue album).Some wonderful salsa from Ruben Blades on Escenas, and also a slow-moving duet through Linda Rondstat on "Silencios" (namong the album is sung in English not even by Linda on this duet) and also a Joe Jackkid solo on "The Track of the End of the Wold (La Cancion del Final del Mudo) with Blades, that composed all the songs on this album, offering his advice, that great humor is important and to dance to this song of the finish of the human being, "for excellent or for bad, we sent for it: currently the bill has actually been handed to us and it hregarding be passist."

Hard land also, she and I, Unforproviding, she nor I. I walked through a graveyard prefer silence, over and endmuch less, frontiermuch less land; naked, my skin drenched in sweat, my shadow was as exhausted as I. Hard land; she and also I Unsurrendering; she nor I.'Blades has a good voice. Pianist Ricarperform Marrero is a driving pressure. The album cover renders me laugh, especially the lady in the lit up window via a cross hanging on the wall.
