Staff Notes: Matrix number in shelac reads W 402623 D. There are two 78 present but both discs are different recordings and masters. This 78 was recorded earlier than the other. Both recordings share same Title and catalogue number but the matrix number is different. This was recorded early 1929, earlier that the other that was recorded later the same year. This corrido is about a couple who migrate to Pennsylvania on 28 of April at 6 in the morning to avoid picking cotton in Texas. The woman will go to work washing clothes. They split up to work in seperate states but promise to keep in touch by writing to each other. The man ends up in Milwaukee. Corrido ends with a smile on his face along with 300 faithful Mexican companions.
