AllMusic Review by

This la Sonora Ponceña compilation concentrates on the orchestra's late-'80s and early-'90s output and is proof that the band can blend in with any era, regardless of the trends of the time. Pablo Milanés' "Canción" and "Sigo Pensando en Tí" are two poignant (and danceable) moments, as well as "Saoco," "No Bebo Más," and "Abanacué," which shine throughout this presentation. This features vocals by Héctor "Pichie" Pérez and Manuel "Mannix' Martínez.
