AllMusic Review by

This anthology spotlights previously unissued (on CD) conjunto classics by Roberto Pulido y Los Clasicos and Los Dos Gilbertos. Pulido's band blends two distinct traditions -- the conjunto style, with bajo sexto, bass, and drums, and the orquesta, with brass, reeds, bass, and drums. The cuts utilize the accordion for intros, lead, and background, while the saxes contrast; the results are musically invigorating. Los Dos Gilbertos is a classic conjunto band, playing and singing classic numbers in traditional style, right down to the instrumental configuration of accordion/bajo sexto/bass/drums. Here's a chance to hear both more adventurous tunes and the basic conjunto style done by two excellent practitioners of the genre.
