Album Review
Reviewed 2006-11-28
Classic recordings of a legendary NorteƱo band. Old, scratchy recordings with a slightly tinny sound really just add extra interest to this recording. Guitar, accordion, bass & vocals. On tracks ranging from bouncy rancheras to heel-kicking polkas, to lyrical corridos. All good, but check out these especially:

1. Happy, bouncy, a great intro to their sound.
3. Bouncy, toe-tapping with nice use of accordion.
5. Upbeat ranchera w/a classic sound.
6. Good vocal harmonies in a lazy ballad.
7. Upbeat - makes you want to dance. If only you knew the steps.
9. A lot like #7. Good harmonies, strings, accordion.
12. Sweet, nostalgic, relaxed ballad.
13. Bright midtempo bouncing folk dance.
14. Everybody polka! Such a fun sound.
15. A nice ballad with solid work all-round.
