"A Mexico" is a combination of my favorite collection of Mexican ballads, and one of my favorite Julio Iglesias CDs. What wonderful music! Iglesias' dramatic, lush style is so well suited to these poignant ballads of love, loss, and nostalgia, as well as to the traditional Mexican songs on the CD. One of the major pluses in this selection, is that Iglesias chose many boleros and ballads by the brilliant Mexican composer, Agustin Lara. You can't go wrong with Lara's music. He was a deeply inspired composer; a man in love with love, and in love with music. Who better to interpret his work than Julio Iglesias?
The very beautiful "Noche de Ronda," "Maria Bonita," and "Solamente Una Vez," are all Lara compositions, and movingly sung here. "Cucurrucucu Paloma" is pure Mexico and extraordinary! "De Un Mundo Raro" is an exquisite cut, and "No Me Amenaces," and "Ella" are oldies but goodies with a Julio interpretation. I thoroughly recommend this unusual collection! Enjoy!

This great album is among his early recordings of the mid 70's which gave Julio international fame and preference. Julio gave these classic romantic mexican boleros and rancheras the unique romantic style that characterizes his voice, which isn't exactly powerful but with great melody and feeling. This CD is a must have for all Julio fans and collectors!

This was the first Julio album I heard back in 1983. I learnt a lot of Spanish from it. It is a wonderful collection of soulful, exquisite music. I recommend it without reservation, the songs are classic, most written by a famous Mexican songwriter. I have bought it in album format, cassette and now CD format. It is a treasure.

This is one of Julio best albums. For myself personally it brings back memories of the night I proposed to my wife. At a resturant in San Antonio a man play "Solamente Una Vez"...it made the setting very romantic. I highly recommend this album

Julio has a truly excellent voice and does a wonderful job with these songs. The arrangements are also very nice. The reasons I gave this CD 4 stars instead of 5 are as follows... 1. The digital remastering is good but not great. 2. Julio is singing Mexican songs with a Castilian accent. 3. The photo of Julio on the front of the album shows him wearing a shirt that says Puerto Rico. 4. The lyrics to the songs are not included in the CD insert... and 5. Some of my favourite Mexican songs are not included on this album... songs like Las Mananitas, La Bamba, Cielito Lindo Como Te Quiero, Volver Volver, and De Colores to name just a few. Of course, it could be that Julio and his producer had decided that these songs had been oversung and thus chose somewhat lesser known Mexican songs for this album.

I don't purchase a lot of Julio Iglesias CDs because they very often turn out to contain songs that appear on the several CDs I already own. Not this CD. This is a lovely collection of Mexican songs - some familiar, some not so much. Julio sounds great, the instrumentation is fabulous and the result is a completely enjoyable CD.

I am replacing my vinyl record which I have not been able to hear for years. Great music, great singer even if he does pronounce the words with the spanish "th" sound.
