The live album Altos de Chavón captures singer Ana Gabriel performing a landmark concert at the amphitheater in Casa de Campo in the Dominican Republic, where local fans were invited to be "extras" for the filming of this marathon show. Live, the first set featured Gabriel's pop hits while the second set featured mariachi songs, and while both were presented on the home video release, the sets were split for audio. Altos de Chavón: El Concierto features the pop portion of the set with highlights like "Quién Como Tú," "Luna," and the "Medley Pop" mostly crowded toward the end of the album. Exciting material and passionate performances, but fans looking to get the full show should consider the video, or buying this one along with its complementary release Un Mariachi en Altos de Chavón.
