I recieved this as a gift years ago and lost it. I didn't think I would ever get to replace it so inexpensively. Ronstandt is one of my most favorite singers in english or spanish, but in spanish I feel her soul cry out the strongest. This CD makes me tear up and gives me chills. The words printed in both english and spanish let you know what she sings of, improving the meaning and understanding of her heartfelt stories. Her singing voice is comparable to any if not better than most contemporary or past singers of her style. Sweet, smooth, strong and heavenly.

"I like all kinds of music. Techno, Rock, Classical, Pop... it goes on and on. But in general I don't really care for Spanish music. Then why does this album get such a high rating from me, you might ask?When I was six years old my father got a brand new high-fi sound system with huge, miraculously clean and rich sounding speakers. CD players were relatively new at the time, and we only had a few cds. One of the ones he used to play was this one. I have memories of listening this cd with him and being absolutely mezmorized by the vocals, which can only be described as magical. Since then I have heard many more vocals by the great Linda Ronstadt (perhaps most notably her unbelievable singing in the movie version of The Pirates of Penzance). But this album holds a special place in my heart. This cd was made back the days when high-fi really WAS high-fi. When the crystal-clear cd-audio was used to full effect. This cd is perfectly balanced, perfectly mastered. Truly amazing.The vocals on this cd are just plain mind-blowing. They are what makes Linda Ronstadt one of my favorite singers. She can hold huge high notes with just the right amount of vibrato (at the top of her lungs) for what I would consider an insanely long period of time. But she doesn't sing just to impress. She sings from her heart.If you love Linda Ronstadt, you need this album. If you love classic Spanish music, you need this album. If you just appreciate great singing, you need this album. Truly of the all-time greats."

""Canciones de mi Padre" is simply more than one singer re-doing Mexican classics. Ronstadt's versions of "Por un Amor," "Tu Solo Tu," and "Y Andale" raise the stakes high: she sings these songs as if they were just written for her beautiful, soaring voice. Crisply and authentically produced by Peter Asher and Ruben Fuentes, this CD is as much a perfect introduction to traditional Mexican rancheras as it is a fine addition to those who mistakenly believe their CD collection is complete. And when Linda hits those high, long notes in "La Charreada," ay! I can feel my abuelita smiling up in heaven!"
