AllMusic Review by

Tito Nieves' first all-English album is an homage to the boogaloo years and includes bandleader Joe Cuba tunes ("Bang-Bang"), as well as the title tune (written by Tony Pabón and Pete Rodriguez), which made the Pete Rodríguez Orchestra one of the most popular in the 1960s. Furthermore, Tito uses previously recorded tunes like "I'll Always Love You" and the standard "How Do You Keep the Music Playing?" (by Alan and Marilyn Bergman), as well as pop tunes like "Heart of Mine" and an effective Motown-label medley. Unusual vehicle for a salsa artist in the 1990s, but the object of pure diversion.
