It's Not Exactly Mariachi

I must admit I know absolutely nothing about 1950 - 60's Mexican Rock & Roll but I really don't' need to find out very much because there are many great compilations to purchase and none are better than the El Loco Rocanrol Volumes 1 & 2 on Floridita Records. The first three tracks featured today are from that series and then the last track by Los Matematicos comes from their obscure third album on RCA Camden. I have also found out that in 1962 there was a Mexican Rock & Roll movie released titled 'A Ritmo Del Twist', (To The Beat Of The Twist !) so seek it out. I'm not going to give you the English title versions of the songs, you can work 'em out for yourselves.

Los Apson - Calor

Los Psicodelicos Xochimilas - Susie Q
