Ranchera Rock y Frontera Funk

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!

    Hi. I was wondering if you had any more records by Los Mayans. I am looking for any vinyls i can find on this band. You see my grandpa was in the band who has since passed but I’m searching for all his lost music. Please feel free to email me.
