If you are looking for ballads then The Fiestas is not for you. "Last Night I Dreamed", "Come On And Love Me" and "Our Anniversary" are decent but not outstanding. You will not miss much passing this disc up.

You win some, you lose some. The tracks by The Malibus caught my eye so I decided to take a chance and got burned. There is nothing on this disc that I can tag as a highlight. Definitely a pass.

I picked this disc up solely for "The La La Song" by Roddie Joy. The rest was popcorn oldies that I skipped through gather quickly.
The Roddie Joy track gets a 10 out of 10. The rest of the disc gets a 1 out of 10.
A good look at the late Van McCoy's early work. Highlights include "Mr. D.J.", "It's Twelve O'Clock", "Girls Are Sentimental" and "Come Back To Me". Liner notes and excellent sound quality.

The first track it a killer sweet soul jam but unfortunately it does not hit another high point through the rest of the disc. "I'm Saying Goodbye" and "This Is My Prayer" are decent tracks. Excellent sound quality and liner notes.

Early R&B sides by Shirley and Lee with lots of uptempo tracks. This CD is not recommended for all, especially if you are more into 60's and 70's slow ballads. Leave this one for the hardcore Doo Wop fans. Above average sound quality.

I found myself hitting the skip button on these quite often. There are tracks by Latin artists but the majority of the good tracks are from popular soul singers within the low rider community. The good tracks are all repeats.
