"Johnny doesn't have a gifted voice - a bit too high - but
every time I purchase one of his records I'm always very pleased
because this small "lack" is highly substituted by either
wonderful melodies or real nice up-tempo songs. He probably
has -in overall- the most beautiful melodic songs ever listened
to. Although considered a Tex Mex artist like Freddie Fender,
I don't agree with that. To me he's a real country singer
with some latin orientated songs. As a matter of fact his
Spanish is less fluent and has more accent than Freddie or
Raul Malo. After 3 experiences with JR records lately I will
keep on buying his stuff. He is abolutely worth it!
His hits for Epic label

"This collection is valuable because it contains Johnny Rodriguez's last 3 top 10 records. "Down on the Rio Grande," "Foolin" and "How Could I Love Her So Much," were all top 10 hits in the late 70's and early 80's.
All songs here are original recordings. The packaging is budget line.
A Fine collection

"I consider Johnny Rodriguez to be one of the top country vocalists of all time; his delivery of a song is superior to that of even Merle Haggard (who he is often compared to). This album, though, seems to cover the later (more poppish) sounds of Johnny, and in my opinion, does not do him justice. If you want to hear the absolute best sounds of Johnny Rodriguez, buy his "Hits" album. However, this album is still far from bad, and is well worth your time and money. It is far superior to anything coming out of Nashville (which may not sound like much of an endorsement), but it is not quite up to par with his "Hits" collection. "North Of the Border" is the real stand out here, and you'll get more Mexican (South of the Border Redneck!) flavor with this collection."
