AllMusic Review by

This was the second of two Raphy Leavitt recordings produced by Bronco Records. Musically speaking, the band has evolved immensely, as it sounds brighter and sharper as years go by. This production owes a great deal to arranger Isidro Infante and his superior charts, giving the group a generous amount of pep. Sammy Marrero, Carlos Ramirez, and newcomer Osvaldo Diaz excel immensely with mostly romantic material, wherein the nimble orchestrations come to the rescue. Marrero is excellent in "Amiga de Que," "Cállate Corazón," and "Inventario." Carlos Ramirez certainly outdid himself like in no other Orquesta La Selecta production in cuts like "Se Solicita un Cariño," "Calla Corazón," and "Que Será Lo Que Se Unta." Both albums from Bronco Records remain among the very best in this enduring pop band.
