In the Mexican Bag



Album: In the Mexican Bag

Artist: Billy Strange and the Mexicana Brass

Year: 1966

Label: GNP Crescendo Records

Liner Notes: "Billy Strange is the unsung hero of the music business. He digs music inside and out. And he knows how to take even the most complicated things and put them into a language that everybody digs. Needless to say, he sure gets thru to this girl! He's given me direction. A SOUND! Billy's like a short wave radio. He not only sends out his message loud and clear, but he receives everybody else's. So when you ask Billy to write something, you can be sure that there will be a part of you in it too. Because he can pick up on you, like nobody else! He figured me out in a fast five minutes. I OWE HIM A LOT! AND I LOVE HIM A LOT! -- Nancy Sinatra"
