Synopsis

Amazon.com
Selena's Grammy-winning Live album is a sizzling reminder of her electric stage charisma and blossoming talent as a performer. The album's nine live tracks--recorded in February 1993 at the Coliseo Memorial in Selena's hometown of Corpus Christi--showcase the late singer's uncanny ability to infuse a love song with both girlish innocence and a heated sexuality. Particularly effective are extended versions of "Como La Flor," "Baila Esta Cumbia," and "La Carcacha." You can almost feel the heat seeping through your speakers. The album also includes three new studio tracks--"No Debes Jugar," "La Llamada," and the Emilio duet "Tu Robaste Mi Corazon"--which foreshadow Amor Prohibido, Selena's final Spanish-language album. --Joey Guerra

CD Reviews

Live is the way to hear Selena in her full electric glory.

(5 out of 5 stars)

"A live album usually sounds distorted and weak compared to a musician's identical studio recordings. Not in this case. Selena was not just a singer. She was a Performer. You know that when you hear the audience screaming her name and the announcer introducing the one and only Selena. Turn up the volume, boost the bass just a touch and prepare to join a live performance right in your living room. Selena is awesome on stage, where she comes alive and works the crowd into a frenzy. If you like her music or want to feel what it would have been like to be at one of her concerts, buy this album. You will not be disappointed. And don't be surprised if one day you take it along in your car and drive to work or play jamming to "La Carcacha"."
I thought that the CD was pure quality.

"Selena is the the true performer of the people. Her songs are fun and about everyday life. People from all ethnic backgrounds can appreciate her music. I thought all the song were great. I listen to them all the time. Even if you don't know what she's saying you can feel her music by the beat and the rythm. Selena was a great loss to latino music and EMI records. Buy this CD to keep the spirit of Selena alive."
A good way to listen to Selena "Live!"

"This is the CD she won the Grammy for. It`s very good. "Como La Flor/Baila Este Cumbia" is one of the best songs on there. Also, "Tu Robaste Mi Cordazon" is another good song. This is a good CD because it is live, it`s just Selena naturally performing, and she lets her fans interact."
