José Alfredo Jiménez - Lo Esencial 3CD

Lo Esencial de Jose Alfredo Jimenez 3 Cd + DVD

José Alfredo Jiménez is legenday Mexican singer and composer of rancheras. In this package of 3 CD's there are 55 songs but unfortunately without my favorite "La Noche De Mi Mal". His songs are full of pathos (Pathos (pronounced /ˈpeɪθɒs/Greekπάθος, for 'suffering' or 'experience') (adjectival form: "pathetic") represents an appeal to the audience's emotions.). Appeal to my emotions is successful in case of Jose Alfredo - he can make me cry! Chavela Vargas (who can also make me cry) wouldn't be that great without Jose Alfredo Jimenez songs.
