Freddy Fender Artist Snapshot:

A beloved figure in the annals of musical Americana and one of the first Mexican-Americans to crack the country charts, Freddy Fender scored a huge hit in 1959 with the classic "Wasted Days and Wasted Nights." Legal troubles sidelined Fender until the early 1970s when he reemerged as a chart force offering a smooth blend of American roots music that incorporated country, blues, Cajun music, and Mexican border sounds. In the early 1990s Fender, along with Lone Star music legends Doug Sahm, Augie Meyers, and Flaco Jimenez, formed the Tex-Mex supergroup the Texas Tornados. The group released several albums together, and Fender continued to perform solo until his death in 2006.

Product Notes

It has taken five decades, but for the first time in his storied, sometimes checkered career, Freddy Fender delves deeply into the music of his forefathers: the boleros and rancheras that would have played in the ghettos of his native San Benito, Texas, and that he sang as a youth in border-town cantinas. Backed by a veteran trio of San Antonio guitarists--Juan Aguilar, Pancho Perez, and requinto master Chepe Solis--simple percussion, and tastefully arranged strings, Fender wraps his voice (as clear, vulnerable, and evocative as ever) around the long, round vowels of the Spanish language, and leaves few emotional stones unturned. Especially gorgeous are "Adios Muchachos," a melancholy meditation on final farewells, and the delicate opener, "Rayito de Luna." El Be Bop Kid isn't just back; he sounds reborn. --Roy Kasten
