Mariachi Mexico de Pepe Villa: El Auténtico Son Jalisciense

This is the best recording I have heard of Mariachi Mexico de Pepe Villa, one of the greatest Mariachi bands of all times, and it's one of my favorite albums of any genre. The musicianship and production on this album are totally insane, and the dynamic sound makes these takes on classic sones both heavy and fun. I'm not sure when this first came out, but my guess would be the late 50's.

  2. This reminds me of the time I spent in Jalisco as a young boy. I would sit on my grandfathers lap and listen to the calls of the trumpets shout over the rhythmic strummings of the spanish guitars which would then wrap into the melody of the voices. Voices from the dessert. Anyways I like the album too.

  3. Yo vivia en el sur de California, me encantaba ir como un chico a Mexico para escuchar la musica mariachi. Es una musica romantica y divertida.
