Loud surface noise due to wear. This is an answer to “Maria De La Luz”. Due to the condition of this 78 there are a couple of skips at the beginning of the transfer as well as the end.
Sorry, Juan Carlos, we don't have that corrido by Los Alegres de Terán. But we do have it by three other artists which you can find with this link.
Interestingly, I made a mention of that song in my biography of Los Alegres. It was their first recording on Orfeo, but unfortunately it's not currently in our database. Here's the relevant paragraph:
"In 1948, the newly minted duo started making the rounds of clubs and cantinas in their hometown’s red-light district (zona de tolerancia). Their crowd-pleasing performances spurred them to travel to nearby Monterrey to pursue their careers. The following year, they made their first recording on the Orfeo label, a 78-rpm single titled “El Corrido de Pepito,” backed by “La Matrera,” a polka composed by Abrego."
