The trend to bring Latina singers into the American mainstream continues with Mexican pop phenomenon Thalia. No stranger to the limelight, Thalia had sung in two youth bands and starred in Mexico's first teen-centric soap opera by the mid-1980s. But don't worry - her promo material assures us she was "still a teenager" when she moved to Los Angeles to pursue a solo singing career. Over fifteen years later, Thalia's reputation has blossomed with a string of hit records. While she's a stylistic chameleon - you'll hear ska, rock, rap, techno, ballads and traditional Mexican music all vying for space on her records - Thalia controls the mic with total assurance. She sounds passionate and gritty on the traditional collection "Conda Banda: Grandes Exitos" and she's also finding her feet, slowly, in the world of American R&B.

The Last Concert: Live From The Astrodome
Runtime: 54 minRecorded live on February 26, 1995. All tracks have been digitally remastered. Selena Quintanilla, the late queen of Tejano music, is caught here in her final performance in Houston, Texas. More a cultural than a solely musical phenomenon, Selena provided American Latinos and Latinas with a bona fide pop star, and unfortunately their first bona fide pop casualty. Here she works her magic on a medley of '70s Anglo disco classics before slipping into more familiar Tejano territory with her biggest hit, "Amor Prohibido" and a slew of crowd-pleasing classics. Her band is tight and adept (her brother plays bass); the crowd goes predictably wild at every opportunity. As a document of Selena's undeniable live appeal, LIVE THE LAST CONCERT is invaluable, and essential for all true Selena fans.
