"Chris Strachwitz . . . became an ardent collector of 'roots' recordings . . . and personally assembled this focused archive of some 147,000 items. Highly recommended."
"This book is aimed at fans of US border music and students (studying Chicano Studies) yet it contains much entertaining info and is well illustrated with vintage photos, record labels and advertisements- thus enthusiasts for American roots music will find much rewarding here."
