Reviewed 2009-08-01 
Wonderful Tex-Mex conjunto music w/polkas, cumbias, ranchera, and boleros. Infectious music w/great guitars, bass, accordion, perc & vocals. Typically wonderful Smithsonian notes as well. Great stuff, one star, at least, each track. In Spanish & English.

1. Fun and bouncy polka. Instant fun.
2. Fiesty good cumbia w/a wickedly fun wiggle.
3. Lively midtempo folk dance w/extra good accordion.
4. Warm polka bounce w/great vocals. So good.
5. Beautiful, romantic ranchera w/lush & warm vocals.
6. Wonderful, playful instrumental. Upbeat & cheerful.
7. Bright polka w/a light and sunny touch.
8. Slow and tres romantic w/sexy, sultry male vocals. Sigh…
9. Midtempo folk dance, like an oom-pah track w/o the oom-pah
10. Upbeat and lighthearted ode to a long-distance trucker.
11. A hint of Cuba by way of Mexico, midtempo rolance.
12. Sweet and lively polka w/good vocals & lots of emotion.
13. Tripping, upbeat folk dance w/a crazy good rhythm.
14. Romantic, lyrical, sweet & sad. Good vocals, atmospheric.
15. Upbeat accordion & fun vocals mark this lively polka.
16. Crazy good upbeat polka & non-stop liveliness & style.
