“It is a beautiful mix of dance music Flaco often could be heard playing in the dance halls of San Antonio. Lyrics and translations grace the booklet, which is fleshed out nicely with excellent notes by Chris Strachwitz. If you like the San Antonio Conjunto sound, feast your ears on one of its finest accordionists on this CD.”
