REVIEWS

“This CD best captures Jiménez' genius and the essence of the San Antonio sound. Compared to his current work with the Texas Tornados, this release shows Jiménez' no-frills approach to the Tex-Mex conjunto accordion. Any cut will conjure images of the annual Conjunto Festival or a typical Saturday night at a neighborhood ice house.”

(Ben Taverna King — San Antonio Express-News)

“'Ay Te Dejo' is a delight, even if the material has all appeared before. The bulk is from the record of the same name made in 1985, with Toby Torres on bajo sexto and harmony vocals, the running time being boosted over the hour by selections from the 1979 release `El Sonido De San Antonio,' featuring Fred Ojeda, Oscar Tellez and other names familiar to Flaco followers. The sound is warm and relaxed, there's a nicely varied collection of regional styles including redovas, boleros and huapangos amidst the standard polka/waltz fare, and the playing is excellent with some risk-taking accordeon contemporisations.

As usual Arhoolie show their peers the way home with their exhaustive sleeve notes, and if you wish to own one Flaco Jiménez album from the traditional end of his considerable range, you won't go wrong with this one.”

(Brian Peters — Folk Roots)
