Lucero De Mexico
Released: Jan 1994
This classic -- and classy -- mariachi album marked Lucero's singing debut and still sounds remarkably contemporary more than a decade after its release. Anchored by Lucero's fresh, nuanced delivery, songs like "Que No Quede Huella" and "Tu Infame Engano" do the genre -- and her inspirations -- justice. Check out the banda excursion on "Tristes Recuerdos."
