Our next guest post comes from Texas-based DJ High-C, co-creator (with Wilson) of the amazing Rehash Media website that features record reviews and mixes. It has been a staple of mine for years, so it is a big pleasure to have C drop the Tejano fuego here at Musica del Alma!
Just when you think you’re well-versed on Tejano Funk, something like this pops up. I was familiar with the Dallas Capri label but had never heard of Neto. After scanning the track listing in hopes of finding some English song titles, I quickly realized that I had hit the Tejano soul jackpot. A cover of Bobby Patterson’s “TCB or TYA” AND a cover of Juggy Murray’s “Oily?” I knew I had to own this record before I’d even heard it. Call it filed at first sight. And fortunately for me, upon giving it an initial spin my suspicions were confirmed. This record esta chingon! I even bump the rancheras on the regular. RIP Neto! Your funky legacy lives on!
