AllMusic Review by

This collection of Mexican wedding music offers all the best-known tunes on a single disc, including "Jarabe Tapatio" and "La Raspa" (you know, the Mexican hat dance). While the fidelity of the recordings is not the best that can be found, this is a fine representative compilation. Besides, it's always nice to hear "La Bamba" performed in the traditional style.
