Los Rancheros- Mexican Cowboy Songs (Decca, 1950)

This 1950's cowboy trio sound something like a dynamic Mexican equivalent to the Sons of the Pioneers. Los Rancheros had originally been named Los Tres Murciélagos ("The Three Bats"), but that apparently got canned once they started touring Los Estados Unidos, since it was too much of a "tongue-twister" for gringo audiences. This good stuff. Cool harmonies. 320 vinyl rip by yours truly.

Please do it. Even Mexico need it. Do it for this magnific territory of the Américas.

I found these Los Rancheros 78's in a basement record store in New York in 1974. I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. Then they dropped and shattered in a move. My heart was broken - It took me 20 years to find them again. They are so wonderful. Thank you for having original album posted on your blog.
