OK, let me tell you the truth about this album....
I bought this brand new (still sealed) album just for the cover (as always), my intention was to put it on the Mexican Album Covers
blog, but after listening to this superb accordion playing, I decided to give it a try here, I'm not a big fan of this kind of music, but this album made me change my mind.
This is a traditional norteno
music band, very popular here in mexicantville, playing some polkas
, but the difference is that northern bands use the button accordion
, instead of the more "traditional" piano accordion, and use the Bajosexto
, instead of a guitar....
So if you're in the mood for some excellent instrumental accordion playing, give this album a try, It'll take you just 20 minutes of your busy lives, but you'll just want to listen to it again and again, or your money back guaranteed....
