Introducing from Zacatecas, Mexico: Beto Diaz And His Province Orchestra
, born in 1934, Diaz formed his first band at age 12, with such names as "Son Tropical", "Son Clave de Oro", "Son Caribe" and "Son Estrella".
In 1952 he had the idea of forming a band with some of his friends, with the main purpose of playing music for thier girlfriends in a serenata, and later came up with the name "Conjunto Juvenil".
They evolved into a more sophisticated band with the addition of violins, trumpets, guitars, and the accordion of Beto, and recorded their first E.P. under the name of "Beto Diaz' Juvenile Orchestra". After the album's success, the company sent them a telegram saying "You made it!, now it's time to record the full LP".
After the celebration party, Diaz tought that success finally arrived for an orchestra from the "provinces", as most of the orchestras from the time were from Mexico City, thus changing the name to the "Province Orchestra".
The album has some very minor glitches, but the music is great (a weird mix of swing, rock & roll and tropical!!!)And Here's The Track List:
