Note: Our improved search engine now returns complete results whether a letter is accented or not in our database. You need not bother to enter any accented letters in your search word or phrase. Your search results will still be complete.
Search Tip 1
If you're not sure how to spell something, type in the portion of the name or phrase that you are sure of and select Partial String Search.
For example, a customer was looking for any CD where Bobby Valentin plays bass.
He wasn't sure if Valentin had an "e" on the end, so he simply entered Bobby Val, selected Partial String Search and got the results he needed.
Search Tip 2
Select Exact Match for an exact phrase.
With Exact Match off a search for Nelson Gonzalez may select items that include Nelson Rodriguez and Celina Gonzalez -- not necessarily what you might want.
To be sure to get the right result, search for Nelson Gonzalez with Exact Match on.
Note: In some cases, you may purposely choose to turn off Exact Match.
Example: Lets say I wanted to locate all recordings where Hector Lavoe sings "Periodico de Ayer" and "El Cantante."
I'd just type in lavoe periodico cantante and it would select any items that contains all three words. If I would have had Exact Match on then I wouldn't have gotten any results because the phrase "lavoe periodico cantante" does not exist in our data!
