The special commemorative edition 1978/2020 by Amaury Pérez Vidal was being recorded at the time when the alarm was unleashed in Cuba for COVID-19, thus pending its completion.

Forty-two years after the troubadour and EGREM in co-production with the Casa de las Américas released the LP Versos de Martí, with the performances of Cuban singer-songwriter Amaury Pérez Vidal and the collaboration of poet Roberto Fernández Retamar, the Cuban singer-songwriter produces the remake of the beautiful album, which brought together 10 songs musicalized by the singer based on the same number of texts by the National Hero.

On this occasion, Amaury is supported by Elsida González in the executive production and Juan Manuel Ceruto in the musical production and direction. In addition to the aforementioned singers, other are included, such as Adrián Berazaín and Mauricio Figueiral, Eduardo Sosa, Raúl Torres, David Blanco, Leonardo García, Luna Manzanares, Daniel Torres, Ivette Cepeda and César López.
