A good good collection by an underratated combo. My only regret is that it did not include "Yes, Sir, That's my Baby" In its selcetions. I really enjoyed the album, and consequently became a life long fan of the Baja Marimba Band. Over the years, I bought all their albums. I have dragged out all them at one time or another and my kids and I would play them. When I found this album on line recently, I immediately bought it to download into my computer and play the CD in my car. It is a compilation of the Band's greatest hits, and well worth the purchase price. I play it often, and relive lots of old memories.
