A Well-rounded Collection by Mexico's Greatest Torch Singer

"Although well-known as a singer and actress in Mexico, Beltran is almost unknown in the United States, where many non-Latinos first heard her sing during the opening credits of Pedro Almodovar's film "Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown". Unlike many Mexican singers, Beltran moves easily from religious odes to Norteno hits to urban laments, and this CD includes a broad overview of her best work, with high-quality recordings. Among some of the highlights are her version of the classics "Cucurrucucu Paloma" and "El Siete Mares", the righteous "La Mano De Dios", and the pop tune "Corazon, Corazon". While the breadth of the collection might turn off purists, this is the best available compilation of Lola Beltran I've seen, and includes her greatest torch hit, the weepy "Soy Infeliz"."
