20 Exitos Review

by John Bush

Bolero singer Olimpo Cardenas gained fame throughout Latin America for his sweetest of high tenors, and the Brentwood compilation 20 Exitos goes farther than any other to present a full collection of his work. It begins with one of his best performances, "Lagrimas del Alma," and neglects only a few other hits. Given the scarcity of information about Cardenas (and the lack here), it's difficult to peg these songs precisely, but they do date from the heart of his career.
