"This exuberant collection of concert recordings is a robust fiesta, with a lot of love shared between these two Mexican icons and their audience, and it is also historical, capturing for perhaps the last time father and son, El Gran Garañon y El Potrillo, who have been on tour together for about two years.
Their powerful voices are marvelous separate or together, as they share equal time singing their solo hits, and join up for 4 duets, from "Amor de los Dos", which was Alejandro's first recording when he was 19, and started him out on a singing career, to the spectacular "Perdon", with a soaring interpretation of this gorgeous melody by these perfectly blended voices. Other memorable highlights are "Cuando Yo Queria Ser Grande", sung movingly by Alejandro to his father, and a long, slightly modernized version of the exquisite "Como Quien Pierde una Estrella", which was a big hit for Alejandro in 1995. Vicente has many shining moments, like "Me Voy a Quitar de en Medio", and he really knows how to work the crowd, who respond to him with wild appreciation.I personally don't care for the overall sound quality, which suffers sometimes from the same complaint I had seeing them live at the Universal Amphitheater, where the over-amplification was deafening, and caused a lack of clarity; nevertheless, one must make allowances for live recordings, and for fans of Vicente and Alejandro, this set is a must, to join with the audience with a big cheer. The foldout insert has little more than a song list, and total time for disc # 1 is 46'27, and disc # 2, 63'46."
Very Powerful Stuff...

"The first thing anyone will notice about this live concert c.d. is that Alejandro and Vicente sound impressive live just as they do on their studio albums ! With most "live" concert recordings the artist's vocals get lost in the background or mix which is what deters most people from purchasing concert performances on c.d. Most of the times the performance by the artist is hampered by the sound of the crowd and the band or instrumentation ! So, what can account for such an excellent recording (besides the mastering or mixing of the recording)? The sheer fact that Alejandro and Vicente are without a doubt two of Mexico's most powerful male vocalists...Alejandro's voice is unique from his father's in that he posesses that deep baritone and emotive voice. While, Vicente has his own unique style as well...As for the songs on the 2 disc set, they are each incredible, full of life and vitality about the ups and downs of love, life, and anything in between ! This is a 2 disc set that is definitely worth owning and will give your stereo system a thorough workout !"
