FS: Re-cut Mexican "A" Roll
By Ed Gaida

After 24 years in the roll business I have learned a lot, but nothing
more important than "'Ethnic' Music Sells" -- Spanish, Italian, Polish,
German, Bohemian and Mexican rolls fly off the shelves.

I am offering a re-cut of what I consider to be an excellent Mexican
"A" roll.  I don't think it has ever been re-cut; if it has, it should
be re-cut again!  What makes it special is the fact that someone chose
some of the best selections and put them all on one roll.

Mexican march "Jesusita", an evergreen, is on the roll as well it should
be.  It has stood the test of time and I would venture to say that any
social gathering on San Antonio's West or South Sides where dancing is
featured will have this song played.  It is a march; however, around
here, people dance the polka to it.

Escuche bien!
