This collection of '40s recordings is one of the essential items of historic norteño music, and not just because that style is misprinted as "nortneo" in huge typeface on the back page of the CD booklet.

Ay, caramba — it moves like a pony doing sprints around a pasture. A superb remastering job has been done on these recordings, which originated as vintage radio broadcast transcriptions.
