    Ohhhh, I love Ruben Blades!! I still have a "cassette" of his - lol!

    From my little research, his last concert was in 2006.

    He does have a "Best of" CD out for 2010.

    I'll continue to look to see what I can find.

    Ohhhhh, the old Salsa dancing days! Ahhhhhh

    and some great latin jazz as well!

    Here is the latest happs on Ruben Blades from Wikipedia:

    In 2004, he put his artistic careers on hold when he began serving a five-year appointment as Panama's minister of tourism. Beginning in June 2007, however, Blades turned some of his attention back to his artistic career, presenting an "online tv show" titled Show de Ruben Blades (SDRB) on his website.[3]

    During the summer of 2008 he took a leave of absence for a mini-tour in Europe, backed by the Costa Rican band Son de Tikizia. When his government service was completed in June 2009, he reunited the members of Seis del Solar for the 25th anniversary of Buscando America in an ambitious tour of the Americas.
