I echo what Seth said. It was the Strachwitz Folk-Lyric reissues of early Mexican recordings, including Lydia Mendoza's solo and with her family, that made that era's wonderful Mexican music a particular favorite for me.

She ranks right up there with the great women's voices like Amalia Rodriguez, Dorothy Love Coates or Bessie Smith, and deserves to be remembered with them.
