Thanks for your letter and request for a correction on the name listed for the composer. However, our database uses the exact name as it appears on the label itself in our database – Carmelo Rosado, with the designation as "Sr." The same name appears on the label as "producer," again without the suffix.
On closer inspection, I did find an error in the credit listed for "arranger." Our archive again lists Carmelo Rosado, but the label identifies the arranger as Carmelito Rosado Jr. In this case, we will amend the database to reflect the information on the label.
Forgive me if I'm wrong, but I assume that you are that arranger, since your email identifies you as Carmelo Rosado Jr. If so, I want to apologize for missing your contribution as arranger. By the way, are you part of the Dueto Juventud, the duo identified on the label as Carmelito and Leticia Rosado? And who is the other half of the act? Your voices are lovely together, and I see you also both play guitar.
By the way, do you have a bio or any photos of you father that we may be able to add to the website? It looks like he had a full-blown music business (record label, working mariachi) in San Jose, where I grew up.
Thanks for writing to us and allowing us to correct the record.
