The budget-line Los Inmortales collection from Madacy presents 12 Lola Beltrán numbers in a brisk format that offers little in the way of liner or recording notes. Hits like "La Cigarra," "Golondrina Presumida," and "Corazón, Corazón" are here, but there are quite a few other favorites that didn't make the cut. And though the sound quality is satisfactory throughout, some mention of where or when these recordings came from would be nice and would make Inmortales more enjoyable than it is. It's satisfactory as a low-priced quick buy, but that's about it. There are numerous Beltrán retrospectives on the market, and RCA's Lo Mejor de lo Mejor is a two-disc set that offers a ton of the artist's music at an unbeatable price. It even features brief but informative liner information.
