AllMusic Review by

This hugely popular norteño group was introduced to Anglos by Chris Strachwitz's reissues. The basic sound here is the gentle older duo/trio style, in which accordion and bajo sexto are underpinned by electric bass, but not traps. As in most of The Alegres's many recordings, however, the core unit is joined on-and-off by mariachi backings.
