Mariachi Roots Music
Enrique Torres | San Diegotitlan, Califas | 06/11/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"My brother gave this to me knowing I am a lover of Mariachi music. I have a pretty extensive collection but this is very unique because these guys are originals. These guys were very popular in the 30's and 40's and were considered the premier group of it's era.These are rare recordings that document the evolution of the Mariachi. This group was responsible for popularizing the trumpet (Jesus Salazar) and the first to become popular in cinema and radio. Of course now the trumpet is an acceptable part of the Mariachi but then it was considered going against tradition. Here you'll find huapangoes, son abajeno, pasodobles and canciones and corridos that are timeless wonders. Some of the more popular songs are here like "Guadalajara" and "El Pasajero" but there are some esoteric gems that you may never have heard. The accompanying booklet is informative as well. The 24 tracks here are not to be missed by any Mariachi afficionado, no studio wizardry here just plain Mariachi roots music."
