AllMusic Review by

Selena's charismatic personality and talent are captured throughout Live: The Last Concert, recorded in Houston, TX, on February 26, 1995, about a month before her tragic death (the Tex-Mex queen was murdered on March 31, 1995, at the age of 23). This record opens with a disco medley, including the classics "I Will Survive," "Funky Town," "The Hustle," and "On the Radio." It features a catchy mid-tempo "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom," the bolero-inflected "No Me Queda Mas," the Latin pop number "Cobarde," and the electronica-meets-tropical style of "Techno Cumbia," along with the Cumbia and Tejano hits "Amor Prohibido," "La Carcacha," "Baila Esta Cumbia," and "El Chico del Apt. 512." The set ends with a romantic and seductive "Como la Flor." Live : The Last Concert is a good opportunity to enjoy Selena's legacy.
