39 Songs, 2 Hours 5 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

This triumphant live album captures the beloved ranchera singer known as Lola the Great at her historic 1976 show in Mexico's Palacio de Bellas Artes. Her trademark torch songs are alternately accompanied by a full orchestra or just a lonely guitar. The mariachi horns on "Canción Mexicana" put her in a festive mood. Meanwhile, she wrings every drop of drama from a heartbreaking "Cucurrucucú Paloma," breaking into bird calls during a lyric about a widower whose love appears to him as a white dove.
