This album features a number of lush understated guitar pieces, a few light pop tracks (like the sample above) and several brassy traditional sounding tunes that seem as though they were included as filler.

From Billboard - November 13, 1965: Command Records will attempt to cash in on the selection of Tony Mottola's "Love Songs Mexico / S. A." album as the feature album of the week on the Jim Ameche Organization's syndicated radio show for the week of Nov. 29. The show reportedly reaches some 300 million listeners throughout the world.

Command has ordered several thousand extra streamers, dividers and easel backs to promote the album, and the label has rushed a single from the album to disk jockeys for air play.

Loren Becker, Command general manager said the Mottola album will probably be the label's best seller of 1965.
