El Viejito Parrandero Review

by John Storm Roberts

The two Gilbertos, Martinez and Garcia, are very popular in the Valley, and their latest album shows why. It's typically varied and unflashy, and all in all a fine norteno version of tipico. Seven numbers are polkas, though there's a very pretty bolero by the late great Puerto Rican composer Rafael Hernandez, and an instrumental that mixes several rhythms.
