So I’ve been digging through some of the very last 45’s in the KRMX collection (it’s taken like 7+ years) and I recently set aside about a hundred or so records out of the last few batches. The bulk of the records were regional Mexican music that I ended up selling. But rest assured, I still have well over 2,000+ 45’s that hopefully I can re-examine and post at one point. I would like to add that I sold most of the Tex-Mex music in my collection to people who actually live in Texas and I believe I sold some to a music museum in Austin. I’m sure they are in good hands and I’m happy they found a home where the vinyl is super appreciated.
To be honest, I’m not a huge fan of the ranchera or Tex-Mex genres, but every now again I’d find gems like the 2 45’s in this post – great examples of something I’d keep rather than sell. The prerequisites were that they had to sound really good, they had to sound really odd/weird, artists playing music outside of their genre and/or most English/Spanish cover songs. Anyway, Laredo Texas’ Rene y Rene are probably the most popular band in this post and Los Mayans’ do a nice cover of the Mexican folk song “Cuatro Milpas“.
If you haven’t noticed I am posting more than usual – effectively my baseball season is over, so I’m sure you’ll be seeing more posts from me. Go Oakland A’s. Enjoy!
