The other "reviewer" (who gave this one star) is a moron. This is a great CD.

Anyway, I'm an old gabacho, but my Spanish is pretty decent -- I grew up near downtown Phoenix, was married to una colombiana for a while, have lived in Tucson in a mostly Mexican neighborhood for the last 16 years, and play guitar in a band with a couple of Mexican-Americans y un puertoriqueño.

Anyway, otra vez, this is a great CD. I first found it in 1983 or 1984 in San Francisco in LP form in the $1 cutout bin in Watusi Records on Haight Street. The cover design was hideous -- "amateurish" would be too kind. But what caught my eye was the title, "Pachuco" (look it up on wikipedia), the artist's name (Jonny Chingas -- again, since I don't think I can get away with a literal translation here, look up "chingar" on Google), and the subtitle ("Se me paro" -- literally, "I have a hard on," which I think I can get away with). I laughed out loud when I read it.

So, I grabbed the LP, bought it, and was richly rewarded. The musicianship is pretty decent -- not great, but good -- and a lot of the lyrics are really, really, funny.

This CD adds a few good songs to those on "Pachuco," so I'd highly recommend it. Here's a brief review of the songs:

1. "Se me paro" -- an absolutely hilarious, very sexually explicit do-wop song. (in Spanglish)
2. "Cumbia caliente" -- a good, slightly crude dance tune, an Americanized Cumbia. (in Spanish)
3. Yo quiero tirar chingasos" ("I want to throw punches") -- A musically lousy but heartfelt reaction to anti-Mexican racism. (in Spanish)

This is one great cd. Although there are several great tracks that i have that shoulda been included on this cd like Se Me Paro (part 2), Se Me Paro (full spanish version), young stuff, cholo, samba, menudo and how could you forget Cruising Down Whittier Boulevard? Oh well i'll just make my own best of vol.2. or since GrooveTime Records is in my local area anyways maybe i'll hit them up about this.
