Various - Southwest Side Story Vol.19
There are hundreds of bootlegs out there to sate the ravenous soulero set, and so often they incorporate songs in the vast Numero catalog. Rather than beat them, Numero joins them with our answer to the iconic East Side Story series. Eschewing our classic look and standard-bearing copious notes for sardonic artwork and impeccable selections, Numbero is proud to present a ‰Û÷bootleg‰۪ you can be proud of (because it‰۪s all licensed). This time we‰۪ve set our sights on the most unique of soul cultures: the irreplaceable melting pot of San Antonio. Included here are all songs never before issued other than in minuscule pressings on 45, never distributed outside of Bexar County limits. The Southwest Side Story rolas are obscure everywhere in the United States while eliciting intense nostalgia on the South and West Sides of San Antonio to this day. This could be a greatest hits of DJs like Henry Pena, who began his rein in the 1960s and continues it today with many of these same selections. This no-frills, 14-song LP features local luminaries the Royal Jesters, Sonny Ace, The Dreamliners, The Eptones, Dino Bazan & The Dell Tones, Henry & The Kasuals, and the Volumes.
