HistoryEdit

This was a co-production between two labels: EMI International and Peerless Records. EMI had acquired Peerless and with it the rights of all the recordings of Pedro Infante who had died 39 years before. This musical project was born from the idea of the 1991 album of Natalie Cole Unforgettable... with Love, especially the song "Unforgettable" where she sings with her father, Nat King Cole, who had died 26 years before. Bebu Silvetti suggested that Daniela Romo was the one to perform the song "Enamorada" as a trio, since she had already worked with both Infante and Mijares. It was not well received by critics, although the album sold well.[1]
