Billboard Guide: What the Pros Are Saying:

Rave Reviews for the fascinating The Billboard Guide To Tejano and Regional Mexican Music, by Ramiro Burr on New York publisher BillboardBooks, have come from artists, scholars, music industry leaders, media, record labels and fans:


"Tejano and Regional Mexican Music" by Ramiro Burr represents progress toward filling an

information gap in Tejano Music. The book measures up in terms of providing authoritative information about a subject that's near and dear to many Tejanos, but that has not been adequately documented. It's a fascinating look at Tejano Music by a contemporary writer who is connected to the musicians themselves, their handlers, promoters and to the members of the media who cover the subject on a daily basis. As a writer for the San Antonio Express News, Ramiro is uniquely placed to gather and then spread current information on the subject, and he did exactly that in his book. But he also provides a historical perspective. The book is a real source for today's generation and for those who follow. Thanks Ramiro.
It's great to see that "Tejano And Regional Mexican Music" is available on Amazon.com and that it can be easily accessed by the thousands of Tejanos all over the world who are hungry for this type of information."
-- Corpus Christi Caller-Times music reporter Rene Cabrera, March 24, 2000
