Possibly the best Mexican roll you will ever hear.
Many weeks were spent in piecing together and taping carefully-preserved paper fragments of this very damaged roll to produce for you what we are sure you will agree is the most musical Mexican roll ever cut.  The pictures here only show some of the damage; there were sections, that had broken off and that were folded up in the box with the roll for years; these had to be carefully unfolded, pressed and put back into place before the roll could be scanned one last time for this very special run of rolls.
Not your typical Mexican roll with paso dobles and marcias, nor the "Borderland Specials" frequently found,  this roll was obviously produced for the real bordello market in Mexico.  Most of the tunes have a really romantic and emotional quality to them not found in other Mexican selections of the period.  If you want to secure a copy, I suggest that you order right away as there are but few copies available.  When these are gone, we have no plans to make another run.
A very special thank you to Carl Lambie for all of his work in helping to save this extraordinarily rare roll.  In the SAMPLES section under AUDIO, you can hear samples of 2 files from the roll.
