AllMusic Review by

Part of RCA Victor's epic series of two-disc, 40-track sets spanning the best Latin music of the 20th century, Amalia Mendoza's Lo Mejor de lo Mejor features all of her classic recordings from the '50s and '60s, including "Paloma Negra," "Amarga Navidad," and "Mucho Corazon." Although there aren't any liner notes, simply listing the recording dates for each song is quite an accomplishment for a Latin collection. Two discs is a lot of music, but RCA Victor deserves kudos for allowing listeners to hear so much great music in one inexpensive collection.
