Editorial Reviews

Way before he became a Texas Tornado-even before he sang Before the Next Teardrop Falls -Freddie Fender was a garage rocker, singing American rock 'n' roll ( Ain't That a Shame! ) and his own rockin' compositions in a style that moved some to label him a Mexican Elvis! Here are 24 of those irrepressible recordings cut for Ideal Records in the early '60s.

How could anyone suspect that this local Spanish speaking Rock & Roll

artist would be the huge C&W star of the 70's? It was impossible to

predict but the fact is that this really happened. I've already

reviewed some of Freddy's CD's whether it's C&W, R&R, Tex Mex or

genuine Mexican traditional ballads and given them 5 stars. This

incredible artist interpreted all kinds of music and did it wonder-

fully .This CD holds his first recordings from the late 50's in a pure

rockabilly style from local Mexican hits to covers of Elvis' songs.

A real gift for Rockabilly fans and those interested in Freddy Fender's

music in general.

Love this CD because it is a side of Baldemar Huerta; {Freddie Fender}; that I never knew about. Recommend this CD to all Freddie Fender fans.

I think freddy's later stuff is good. started back tracking to his early recordings I was very impressed. If you like early 50s, 60's type music. You will love this album. Don't worry if you don't speak spanish. The rythym will get you along fine. there are 2 tracks in english. fast and slow songs.

Format: Audio CD
This record contains some popular Anglo songs of the 'Fifties translated into Spanish. Included are "I Hear You Knockin," "Corinna, Corinna," "Over the Mountain," "Since I Met You Baby," and "There Is Something on Your Mind," among many others. The simple instrumentation adds to the total effect of an album straight from Freddy Fender's heart. The CD has 24 songs in Spanish.

When I play songs from this CD on my radio show on KNON-FM in Dallas, the phones light up immediately. Anglo, African-American, and Hispanic, they all want to know where they can buy "Canciones de Mi Barrio."
