This news item might be of interest to those who remember the classic album Siembra (1978) by Ruben Blades and Willie Colon.

"Willie Colón expressed his discontent with the organizers of the 2024 Grammys, due to the award given to the album Sowing [Siembra]: 45th Anniversary in the category of best tropical album.  The musician and producer pointed out on his social networks that the new version of the album is “a clone” of the original release and regretted that the Academy has not recognized his contribution"

Seemingly a "clone" is a better seller than the original .... but to be fair this classic album had several quality reissues over the time granting availabilty for late comers ....

Bobby Valentin "Todo El Mundo Escucha" (Bronco) 1978 .... feat. the great Luigi Texidor whose participation breached a contract with Fania Records .... the threat of lawsuit forced him to record three more albums for the former label, none of them reaching comparable heights again ....
