Mis Rancheras Consentidas
Released: Dec 2007
For his 21st album, El Chapo puts together a lively set of his favorite rancheras. These include standards like "La Feria de las Flores," leading banda composer Joan Sebastian's "Lo Dijo el Cura," and "Con Olor a Hierba," a ballad written by Manuel Alejandro and Ana Magdalena. An excellent band, featuring characteristic clarinet and brass, sets up El Chapo's likable and straightforward delivery on rousing songs of love found and lost.
