From Spain yesterday, I'm jumping back across the Atlantic to Mexico.  Why?  Just because they supposedly speak the same language.  I know there are more dialects of Spanish than you can shake a stick at, but it's a nice connection so I'm going with it. Lots of familiar songs here that I'm sure you'll recognize, but still plenty of tracks to expand your Christmas horizons a little bit.  This is Christmas In Mexico (Capitol "Capitol Of The Word" T10092, Mono, 1957).  I have a theory that the reason many of these recordings have dropped out of sight over the years is because they were made in mono.  We'll eventually get into the later stereo issues, and those records have been reissued a few times, but not these earlier ones in mono.  It's a shame, because mono recording in hi-fi was pretty much perfected at this point, and they sound really good.  You'll really enjoy many of these tracks from this whole series.
