The following informal recording of 'Locura' was sent to me
by a family friend, Mr. Amadeo Nazario, who recorded it in his home studio in 1980 with my father Miguel present.
A typical don't-bring-any-beer-I-have-plenty-here day.
Singing: Genarito Castro on lead vocal and guitar,
and José Ernesto Ibañez on harmony vocal.
as Mr. Nazario told me, by the end of the day they were all singing:
♫...DO, a beer, a female beer, RE, a drop of golden beer...♫...
and Miguel was conducting the Choir.
