AllMusic Review by

This is a too-rare gift: a CD of the queen of fado, and one of the ultra-voices of the 20th century. From internal evidence (the overall sound plus the presence of what sounds like the original version of the bilingual "Coimbra"), these recordings came from the mid-'50s, perhaps her last great period. The ranchera "Gorioncilla," one of a handful of fine Spanish-language songs, is especially interesting.
