Canciones De Mi Padre (Remastered)
Linda Ronstadt was born in Tucson, Arizona and heard plenty of traditional Mexican music growing up, so 1987's CANCIONES DE MI PADRE was a natural for her. As with the three albums of standards that preceded it, this collection of “songs of my father” harks back to an earlier era - though Ronstadt's crystalline vocals are so well suited to these ranchera classics that they sound like they were written for her. World-renowned band Mariachi Vargas accompany the singer on 13 of her Spanish-language favorites including “Tú Sólo Tú,” “Por Un Amor” and “La Charreada.” A Best Mexican/Mexican-American Album Grammy winner and a double-Platinum hit, CANCIONES DE MI PADRE (reissued last month alongside sequel MAS CANCIONES) is both a loving tribute to Linda Ronstadt's heritage and a magnificent introduction to the music of Mexico.
