Staff Notes: 78 was sent for processing of 2000 copies on January 21, 1947 This cut heavily uses slang called “Caló” depicting a sexual parody and daily life of either a “gangster”, “pachuco”, “cholo” or equivalent for that time period. The themes and lyrics sound very contemporary along the lines of the tough, narco, gangster or machista corridos of today. The use of the word “piruja” implies either a prostitute or “loose” woman
