1. Product Details

Includes 4 bonus tracks During the course of his brief life the legendary Ritchie Valens fused numerous musical genres together to form his own remarkable style. He left a lasting impact on rock & roll with his classic rocker La Bamba - a highenergy reworking of an old Mexican wedding song that Valens learned from his cousin. Ritchie put a rock & roll spin on this spirited folk tune juicing it up with garage-rock riffing and a raw enthusiastic solo. In essence he invented Latino rock with this two-minute rock & roll classic. Its driving simplicity foreshadowed garage-rock frat-rock and punk-rock. Ironically La Bamba was the B-side of Donna a dedication to Valens girlfriend that rose to number 2 on Billboards singles chart. La Bamba also charted but only climbed as high as number 22. This double-sided smash marks one of the greatest rock & roll singles of the Fifties.
