"Camilo Sesto is, without a doubt, one of the best romantic songwriter/singers of any epoch. His songs reflect love and its many challenges. Every song on this CD is, in itself, worth the price of the CD. Your must hear "Con El Viento A Tu Favor", "Terciopelo y Piedra", "Si Tu Te Vas", at the least, and remember that he writes the majority of his songs!"

"I'm new to Hispanic culture & music. I bought a Jose Jose tape when in Ixtapa Mexico and didn't think anyone could compare. Being a curious type I began searching for other artists. Camilo Sesto surpassed my expections. The lyrics & musical arrangements are mesmerizing even to a grino."

"This collection of twenty of Camilo Sesto's hits from the 1970s and 1980s is an excellent introduction to the Spanish-born love balladeer's work. Largely unknown in the English-speaking world, Sesto is a mega-star with a voice well suited to the stage.
His lyrics are all about women and the love they inspire, reject, nourish, and protect. Rich orchestrations back up a strong, supple, capable voice. In the Spanish-speaking world now middle-aged people often locate formative experiences in their young lives by pegging them to a Sesto song the was current at the time, much as might happen among English speakers via the music of the Eagles or, say, Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young. More than one young love will leap to mind when a Sesto ballad arrives unexpectedly over the airwaves.
Though the genre is not my favorite, one has to respect Camilo Sesto as a master of it."
