AllMusic Review by

One of the band's most celebrated albums, this effort has remained a favorite for the Christmas season. The tone makes it certifiable for any season as a wonderful homage to Puerto Rico and its national folklore. Among the many memorable moments are "El Arbolito," "Asalto Navideño," and the side-splitting "No Hay Cama Pa' Tanta Gente." There are great vocals by Charlie Aponte and Jerry Rivas. As usual, bandleader/pianist Rafael Ithier and associates demonstrate a sure hand in choice material. A real treat, from Puerto Rico's number onemusical ambassadors.
