Live: The Last Concert [Bonus Tracks]by Selena
Selena's charismatic personality and talent are captured throughout Live: The Last Concert, recorded in Houston, TX, on February 26, 1995, about a month before her tragic death (the Tex-Mex queen was murdered on March 31, 1995, at the age of 23). This record opens with a disco medley, including the classics "I Will Survive," "Funky Town," "The Hustle," and "On the Radio." It features a catchy mid-tempo "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom," the bolero-inflected "No Me Queda Mas," the Latin pop number "Cobarde," and the electronica-meets-tropical style of "Techno Cumbia," along with the Cumbia and Tejano hits "Amor Prohibido," "La Carcacha," "Baila Esta Cumbia," and "El Chico del Apt. 512." The set ends with a romantic and seductive "Como la Flor." Live: The Last Concert is a good opportunity to enjoy Selena's legacy. [The 2002 reissue appends spoken liner notes from Selena's band and family, as well as the bonus track "Llamada."]

You won't be disappointed in the either the audio or the DVD of Selena. She is wonderful both in her beautiful voice and her wonderful entertaining ability. You will definitely want to take up Salsa dancing after watching this DVD. It is powerful from the moment she steps foot on the stage. You won't want it to stop! Watch it my friends, you'll LOVE it!
If you love Selena's music or have just seen the movie of Selena - starring Jennifer Lopez - you MUST buy this album. Selena sings as she never had before and all of her best songs are on this album. This cd takes you to the last concert Selena ever sang and puts you in the front row. You can almost see Selena singing and dancing as you listen to these amazing songs. A must have for any latin song lover.
i really enjoyed her album. it was a shame she had to die the way she did. she was a wonderful singer who blew all other mexican female singers away.
I think this cd is the best she made. All the songs are great on this one.
If only selena could be with us today to hear how wonderful this cd sounds. Her best songs como la flor , si una vez, el chico del apartamento 512, bidi bidi bom bom and many more in the most incredible mixes ever!! Selena never sang like this before and any latin fan must own this treasured cd fo
