AllMusic Review by

Little Joe y la Familia (formerly The Latinaires) were major stars of the Onda Chicana back in the 1960s, and they're still at it. Back then they would play one straight polka for each rock-influenced number. Now they'll happily mix bop-tinged horns with accordion (as in the great title cut), but they still mix cheek-to-cheekers with their wilder stuff: this is, after all, a real-world band that is often playing the only Saturday night dance in some small town.
