15 Exitos 15 - Chalino Sanchez
Released: Feb 2004
Label: Musart - Balboa
Compared to the songs contemporary corridos artists are writing, Chalino Sanchez's hits can feel downright sweet. The pained lover of "Nieves Del Enero" is a far cry from the hardened gunmen who populate narcocorridos. Still, Sanchez is a spiritual parent to the singers; his unconventional voice was deemed wrong for norteno audiences but caught on anyhow. Perhaps even more inspiring to the singers was his spirit -- when a fan shot him onstage in 1992, he pulled out a gun and shot the guy right back. Sanchez survived the attack, but later that year he was kidnapped and murdered.
