AllMusic Review by

This two-fer from Collectables features a pair of out-of-print Xavier Cugat LP's: Cugat's Favorite Rumbas and Mambo at the Waldorf. Each of the 24 tracks has a continuity dominated by Cha Cha rhythms. While this material becomes formulaic, it's still a lot of fun and perfect background music for your next party. Highlights Include "Mambo Gordo," "Besame Mucho," "Begin the Beguine," and "Mambo at the Waldorf."
