Mi Amigo el Príncipe is Cristian Castro’s second tribute to singer José José, the first being 2010’s Viva el Príncipe. Take a look at those titles again and you are clued in to the differences between the two releases, with Mi Amigo taking a friendlier and familiar attitude toward the music, while Viva approached it in a more stately and proper fashion. Either way, both are filled with respect and the same high-caliber performances that convinced the tributee to give these releases his stamp of approval.
