Linda Ronstadt: Canciones de mi Padre. 1992.

Ronstadt's amazing voice, perfect for these songs, is backed by a big Mariachi band, dancers, and the occasional duet singer, including her 17-year-old niece on one song. Elaborate costumes and sets.

It's a little more than a straight concert video, in that there's a voice-over introduction by Ronstadt, saying what the songs mean to her. Some of them have English translations of the lyrics as titles.

Recorded in San Francisco in front of a big audience, the concert of Mexican songs includes:

1. intro 2:59
