AllMusic Review by

An interesting cut-out of relatively unfamiliar Rodriguez mambos, cha cha chas, and such, it includes his version of "El Manicero." Rodriguez was a major heart-throb, and his albums always had plenty of schmaltz. With big-band bolero seeming like a major waste of a rhythm section, it's good to have the hotter stuff unsullied.
