Thanks so much for contacting us and providing information on these recordings your mother's composer credits. I hope you can tell me a little more about your mother's work as a songwriter, and about the norteño band on these tracks that sound quite proficient. We can add a short bio of your mother and the group that would go with the page that features her recordings. Please let me know.
These singles are part of a large record collection owned by Chris Strachwitz, who donated the audio file to the university library for research. They are not being sold or made available for download. For the general public, the audio clips are limited to one minute, as proscribed by law.

Was the songwriter ever contacted for permission to donate her music?
I played drums on this recording. My mother is the composer.
