Sunny times two

Concidentally, Amor de mis amores, Key-Loc KL-3030 (Manny R. Guerra), recorded in San Antonio, copyright 1980, was on the turntable when I came to the Chron article about Sunny Ozuna. This is classic Tejano. Only Sunny is photographed and there are no credits for the Sunliners or any other accompaniment. This is not synthesized. It came, I'd bet, from Maldonado's record shop on East Seventh (later La Tejanita). These are slow, dramatic numbers, including a couple of familiar ranchera songs, for the most part, and his vocals and phrasing are understated (there's nothing resembling a Jay Perez production here).
