Tristes Recuerdos/Af Review

by John Storm Roberts

Ayala, out of Mexico's great '60s Relampagos del Norte but not based in Hidalgo, TX, is currently at least as popular as Los Tigres. Tristes Recuerdos shows subtle but simple accordion playing, a fine kick to the rhythm, and above all a real soulful vocal sound. A corrido, five polkas, a cumbia and a great piece of vallejo rock add up to a superbly successful album.
