Music for a Texan day

Today's HOT AND WINDY conditions had me thinking "TEXAS," and no album in my collection conjures up the Lone Star State quite like "CANCIONES DE MI BARRIO."
The compilation collects late 1950s and early 1960s rock, pop and rhythm & blues tracks by a youthful FREDDY FENDER.
The recordings include American pop hits the future country star sang in Spanish as well as Mexican ranchera standards.
The tunes were recorded for the Ideal Record label, based in San Benito, and are emblematic of the hot, windy and wide-open aspects of Texas.
That's why I'm listening today -- we're experiencing our own little Texas day!
