AllMusic Review by

This collection of 15 of Los Zafiros favorites is a combination of the band's two domestic retrospectives from Elektra, Bossa Cubana and Hermosa Habana. 15 Exitos de los Zafiros pleases throughout, with the group's doo-wop harmonies remaining strong, and their supporting band of light guitar, piano, and spattering percussion staying tight. Ballads like "Mi Oracion" and "Mis Sentimientos" share time with more rollicking, Calypso-flavored material, like the gorgeous "Bellecita," and the exuberance of "Y Sabes Bien" and "Cuando Yo la Conoci." It's a thoroughly entertaining collection that might not offer the extended photography and liner notes of its Elektra counterparts, but nevertheless provides a strong cross-section of this innovative group's best tunes.
