Among Mexico's greatest ranchera heroes through the years, none have radiated brighter than Jorge Negrete and Pedro Infante. While there has been much debate about the relative differences between the two--Negrete had the operatic training--when it mattered, both men connected solidly. For Infante, the moments of critical impact come on the late lament "La Que Se Fue," the flight as metaphor for departing love on "Cucurrucucu Paloma," and the supremely sad "Cien Años." The latter electrifies for its timeless love-was-good-and-true-while-it-lasted message while it ties in nicely with Infante's ever-humble demeanor. For Negrete, he eternalized "Me He de Comer Esa Tuna," "Cuando Quiere un Mexicano," "Asi Se Quiere en Jalisco," and especially "Yo Soy Mexicano," all about pride in culture and roots. Tall and handsome, he fit the charro cantor bill perfectly, evoking pride as one of Mexico's first true cinematic heroes. Two heroes, 30 songs: real value. --Ramiro Burr

For Pedro Infante ORFEON is not recommended

"Although ORFEON carries quality artists at an extremely quality price it does not mean it has its downfalls. I don't think Pedro Infante EVER recorded for ORfeon. Hence the quality of ORFEON is BAD for an artist like Pedro Infante. So what label is recommended? PEERLESS. For Pedro Infante always go to PEERLESS. I buy ORFEON only for artist like Bribiesca or los tecolines. NOT Infante. The sound is BAD. I think ORFFEON owns the copyright for the music of his movies. And not even all his movies. one star for carrying the name Pedro infante."
