A.b. Quintanilla Iii Presents Kumbia Kings Live
Released: Apr 2006
Label: Capitol Latin
Live albums are hard. When they work, they expose the magic a band can create only in front of a crowd; when they don't, every flaw shows up and they're pretty much a yawn. Kumbia Kings Live is the former; the band comes off big, almost outsized, and they hold the audience rapt whether performing a ballad like "Te Quiero A Ti" or rocking the raucous "Boom Boom."
