Los Rancheros- Mexican Cowboy Songs (Decca, 1950)

This 1950's cowboy trio sound something like a dynamic Mexican equivalent to the Sons of the Pioneers. Los Rancheros had originally been named Los Tres MurciĆ©lagos ("The Three Bats"), but that apparently got canned once they started touring Los Estados Unidos, since it was too much of a "tongue-twister" for gringo audiences. This good stuff. Cool harmonies. 320 vinyl rip by yours truly. Los Rancheros- Las Canastas by Dingus Download: Los Rancheros- Mexican Cowboy Songs (Decca, 1950) DL 5221 Tracklist: 1.
