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 Saturday.
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.
