Synopsis

Amazon.com
What the seminal duo Los Alegres de Teran were to norteño music, Los Pavos Reales were to conjunto. The brothers--Salvador and Eddie Torres-Garcia--pioneered the use of vocal harmonies and lilting rhythms in the emerging conjunto sounds in the '50s, the music's second golden age. Sparkling work here includes finger-snapping polkas such as "Alejamiento y Regreso" and compelling rancheras like "La Ultima Cancion." But the brothers also recorded engaging corridos--story-song forms--such as "El Corrido de Seguin" and fast and swinging polka and huapango instrumentals such as "Viva New Braunfels" and "La Pajarita." On the vivid tune "Huella de Mis Besos" the group masks solemn lyrics of good love gone but not forgotten with happy accordion runs. --Ramiro Burr
