Freddy Fender: Tex-Mex (1979)

ABC Records ‎MAY-1132

This was from the dollar bin in a Toronto record shop, one of several Freddy Fender LPs, all in very good condition.

"Just Because," "Cajun Stomp," and "Sweet Summer Day" appear on various Freddy Fender compilation CDs. The rest of this album is not on CD.

Fender had just appeared in the movie "She Came To The Valley" as Pancho Villa, hence the cover artwork. The title song from the movie appears on this LP.

Many of Fender's albums have not been released digitally, although some of the tracks appear on compilations. In 2012, Australian company Raven Records released a CD containing both 1974's Before the Next Teardrop Falls and its 1975 follow-up Are You Ready for Freddy? – two of his biggest sellers, and an essential CD for Fender fans, or at least ones without a turntable.
