From the Arhoolie label-the acknowledged U.S. authority on music from south of the border-comes this staggering exploration, in song and text, of the Mexican Revolution of the early 1900s. Inside are 59 corridos, or ballads, recorded from 1904-1974 that tell the tales of such outlaws as Pancho Villa and Jesus Leal and of the battles they fought against the oppressive central government and the church, coupled with a 180-page booklet that provides Spanish and English lyrics, track-by-track commentary and a historical overview of the events that seemingly are still unfolding in Mexico. More than four hours of musical history.
