AllMusic Review by

The vallenato accordion groups from the Caribbean coast of Colombia are just wonderful: driving, downhome, eccentric heaven. Meza is about the best-known vallenato accordionist, and this re-issue remains my favorite Meza recording ever. Its pearl is his wonderful take on Garcia Marquez' most famous novel, "Cancion Para Una Muerte Anunciada," which would have been one of his finest recordings even without the associations. Out of 19 tracks, almost a dozen have to rate as among Meza's best. (77:27)
