From the heart of South Texas, 24 regional juke box hits from IDEAL Records, the first major Tejano owned and operated recording company (1946 - 1969). Pioneer accordion masters Narciso Martnez and Juan Lopez; Conjunto Stars Paulino Bernal, Tony De La Rosa, and Valerio Longoria; the first Tejano orchestras of Beto Villa and Isidro Lopez; "Las Grandes De Tejas": Lydia Mendoza, first woman star of Tejano music, known to every strata of Spanish speaking society throughout the Americas and Chelo Silva, queen of the Bolero; Lydia's sisters, Maria and Juanita; and the first female duo on IDEAL: Carmen & Laura. Superstar Freddie Fender by himself and also with an early garage-rock classic under the pseudonym of Eddie con Los Shades along with other gems from the formative period of Conjunto and Tejano music. CD includes 24-page booklet with notes, photos, song texts, etc. A must have disc! These recordings represent a gold mine of early Mexican-American music revealing the roots of both Tejano and Conjunto music and the difference between the two styles. If you like Freddie Fender's current work with the Texas Tornados, you'll be hooked by his Spanish language version of the classic `Corrina, Corrina. Ben Tavera King - San Antonio Express News
