AllMusic Review by

José Feliciano combined a Latin jazz flair with pop and light rock to produce a multi-cultural crossover sound in the late 1960s, and this brief ten-song set collects his signature and most commercially successful sides, including his breakthrough hit cover of the Doors' "Light My Fire" from 1968, its hit follow-up, a version of Tommy Tucker's "Hi Heel Sneakers," also from 1968, and other select covers, like Feliciano's take on Sam Cooke's "You Send Me." It's a brief playlist, and it doesn't delve into this artist's occasional forays into more experimental fare, but it's perfect for the casual listener.
