AllMusic Review by

While the bands on this disc of traditional acoustic Tex-Mex from the early '70s are quite strong, the recordings sound rather staid. Except for the occasional shout, the performances by Los Pinguinos Del Norte and Fred Zimmerle & Trio San Antonio seem to be rote, as if this were an academic exercise rather than a document of some of the greatest party music on the planet.
