AllMusic Review by

Although this Fonovisa-issued la Banda el Recodo best-of compilation may be lacking in some of the group's most well-known hits, by dint of sheer volume (30 songs on two discs), it offers a good opportunity to learn about, or increase knowledge of, Mexico's most successful banda. Pieces like "No Tengo la Culpa," "El Corrido de Mazatlan," "Mambo No. 5," "Como el Primer Dia," and "Las Cuentas Claras" are all included, showcasing the band's bright music. And thanks to the ten live cuts, la Banda el Recodo's abilities as performers are expressed to listeners as well. Though La Mejor Coleccion is a better choice for someone looking to pad their collection instead of someone who wants to introduce themselves to the band, it's a pretty decent compilation nonetheless.
