For a blast from the past, Trios Los Panchos were very popular on radio and TV in the 50s and 60s, performing in the 'variety show' days of television with Eydie Gorme. Whenever I think of a classic bolero from those days, the version sung by Los Panchos is always the one I reach for. Here's an album with 17 songs that thrilled the romantic world in their day. Lush voices, great harmonies and sentiment we seldom allow ourselves in the 21st century.
