Tequilazo features a dozen classic Mexican party songs from artists such as Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán, Jorge Negrete, and Los Dos Reales. José Alfredo Jiménez plays a big part on the album, performing and/or writing most of the songs that appear here, including "En el Ultimo Tango," "Llego Borracho el Borracho," and "El Cantinero." Lucha Reyes' "La Tequilera," Mariachi Pulido's "Ella," and Miguel Aceves Mejia's "Tu Recuerdo" are some of the other highlights of this mellow but festive compilation. While it may not be the most comprehensive collection, it's certainly enjoyable enough to be the soundtrack for a Cinco de Mayo or other Mexican-themed fiesta.
