AllMusic Review by

Just over 50 years after he joined his first trio, Julito Rodríguez Reyes released this double-disc, 21-track collection of recordings. Unfortunately, many of his well-known hits ("Historia de un Amor," "Desamparada," "Ladrona de Besos") are not here, though the addition of his self-composed Trío Los Panchos hit "Mar y Cielo" is a very nice touch. Rodríguez's guitar is heard on all of these tracks, though the rest of the accompaniment -- occasional synthesizers and what could be a drum machine -- don't make for complementary songs. Many of the tracks also feature an uncredited female singing harmony.
