ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Lalo Guerrero was born in 1916 in, Tucson, Arizona, and recently passed away. The world lost a great musical legend. Yet his music lives on.
Lalo acquired a love for music from his parents. The focal point of his music was always his family and the struggle of the Chicano community. His mother taught him to play the guitar at an early age and in the 40’s lalo distinguished himself as one of the main music makers of the Pachuco era.
He was a musician and musical composer of many boleros (ballads), boggie or swing tunes and of course his loved parodies. He was one of the first to present his music to the bilingual world. And in some tunes he sings tri lingual (English, Spanish and Calo).
The list of honors bestowed on Lalo are numerous; The National Heritage Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts. He was declared by the Smithsonian Institute as a National Folk Treasure. His name is in the Tejano Hall of Fame and was the recipient of the prestigious Chicano Music Award.

Amazing! No...forget that...how 'bout AMAZING!!

Wait...no, it was

AMAZINGLY AMAZING!

This was the only place I could find this album. Finding anything by Lalo is very difficult. It was worth all the time and effort.

I have been trying to find this recording for over 10 years. My dad actually had a bad copy of a cassette and he loved it. I was hooked the first time I heard it.

The Music that Lalo has created is soooo, funny. I have played his music for all of my friends and family. His parodies are very creative and funny--my friend about died laughing. we also love his great musical talent. very very funny. Thanks Lalo you will be missed.

I grow up on Lalo's music. He was also a friend of our family, so I have a huge fondness to his music. I never knew how famous Lalo was until I saw him being honored on the Latin Grammy's back in 1998. I was floored!! That's Lalo from Palm Springs, who faithfully performed these songs to the kids of Aqua Caliente Elementary School on National TV with everyone standing to honor him!! His time was certainly overdue as well as another friend of the family & friend of Lalo's; Don Tosti, both fathers of the Pachuco Boogie & Chicano Rock.
Glad to know this available on CD!!

WE MAY NOT BE ON TV BUT WE STILL HAVE RADIO
A Chicano to never be forgotten! We need more Chicano icons like him in the world today. RIP Lalo Guerrero.

Awesome!!
I looked high and low for this CD. It is practically impossible to find any Lalo Guerro CDs. I originally was introduced to Lalo\'s music through our family favorite \"Pancho Claus\" and now am a huge fan of all his work. I have shared my love for Lalo Guerro music with family and friends. I have made many \"converts\" to Lalo\'s music. This CD is truley my favorite and my family\'s favorite. We simply can\'t have Christmas without Pancho Claus and \"There\'s No More Tortillas.\" If you debating about getting this CD, don\'t because it is truly a \"must have\" in your music collection.

You don't have to be a Chicano to appreciate this great little album. This guy is a crack up; he has a teriffic sense of humor as well as irony! He is a musical wonder with a true appreciation of the Mex-american way of life & is a gifted musician as well. Sad, we do not have more of this genre & talent.....loved the cd!

If you can get your hands on Randy Garibay blues cds, he runs along the same veins, Chicano pride, all done in the spirit of appreciation for the culture, respect for the brethern & all they brought with them to this fabulous country of America, for which they exhibit great love & respect/ Randy defies definition. I believe Garibay CD's will be coming sometime down the road. You'll find some of his things on SANCHO cd's! Check it OUT!

No Chicanos on TV
As a Chicana living in El Paso Texas, I can relate to the stories in Lalo\'s songs. Lalo expressed my thoughts on growing up Chicana like no other has. I wish I could have thanked Lalo for helping me to express who I am. I am so glad I found this website and Lalo\'s music to pass on to my children.
