Isidro Lopez - vocals and alto sax with accompaniment by his orchestra - unless otherwise noted.

“In the mid-50s, Isidro Lopez became the father of modern Tejano music (now known as classic Tejano) by combining traditional Mexican music and instrumentation (accordion) with a ‘big-band sound’…While Lopez always makes his vocal presence felt, it’s on the vals rancheras where he unleashes his best gut-wrenching passion into a tearful, emotive performance.”
