This Is The Real Thing!
Rocky Ricewing | Cambridge, MA | 06/09/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A boxed set of 4 CDs for [so cheap]? We bought it figuring "It's bound to be terrible, but [it's inexpensive]" What we got was a rare gem. This wonderful collection includes recordings from as early as 1904 to as late as the '70's, but mostly from the '20's. A beautifully produced 178 page booklet includes historic photos, a capsule history of the Mexican revolution -- the earliest of the great social revolutions that characterized the last century -- as well as a history of the music and all the lyrics, in English & Spanish. If you are a serious fan of Mexican music, don't pass this one up. If you just kinda like Los Lobos or Linda Ronstadt's Mexican songs, get this set and discover where it all came from."

"I have been looking for a cd of this category. I love to read about the Mexican Revolution. My grandfather and other relatives have filled our nights around the patio with stories and ballads such as the ones on this cd. Singing was not only a form of storytelling but a way of people finding out of what was going on in other parts of the Mexican territory in the times of Pancho Villa and Emiliano Zapata."
!Excelente Joya!

"Soy un admirador de Pancho Villa y he tratado de leer todo lo referente a ese gran Revolucionario Mexicano. The Mexican Revolution, título de este magnífico álbum es realmente una joya en cuanto a la colección de canciones y corridos de la época de la revolución. Uno escucha de pronto a unos músicos auténticos de esa era, con el sabor incomparable de la gente de campo, de la gente que gusta de llevar por los pueblos los mensajes y hechos de los acontecimientos que extremecieron a todos los Mexicanos. Entre ellos los corridos de Pancho Villa, Felipe Angeles, Francisco I. Madero, Heracleo Bernal, etc. Realmente le damos 5 Estrellas y lo recomendamos ampliamente. Disfrutenlo escuchandolo y tomando una buena taza de café negro como se decía antes... pues."
