The trouble with this if his name would be bigger, the thing would be different. I'm mexican, the 'banda songs' on this album are better than here. An historical, emotional and complete album of folk a beautiful storytelling. It deserves be on top 10 of critical decade
The way this album switches up tone and genre throughout is the biggest strength - just when you think you have it pegged it changes everything up yet again.

Cooder's vocal takes are personality over perfection but that's half the charm.
