Originally released in 1991, this album has been out of print for several years. Rhino is bringing it back newly remastered.

“The reason I did it is selfish,” Ronstadt said in an interview. “I had started to make a record in English, but I didn’t like it and put it away. I found myself sleeping and dreaming in Spanish, and these songs were driving me crazy. I kept waking up in the middle of the night thinking that the musicians who know this music are old, and if they go I won’t have anybody to help me do it. I didn’t dare put it off another minute.”
The album, according to Ronstadt, “concentrated more on trio and ensemble singing than did its predecessor.” For the vocal trios, Ronstandt was joined by her two brothers, Pete and Mike. Except for the professional guitar-playing, Ronstadt said, the arrangements are the same as those they sang in the living room when they were growing up. 
Mas Canciones won Linda the 1993 Grammy Award for Best Mexican/Mexican-American Album.
