    Recording information: Pilo's Bar, Guadalupe, Nuevo Lon (07/28/2009/07/29/2009).
    Desde la Cantina is a live album by one of the top norteo groups at the turn of the century, Pesado, who are joined on-stage by a host of regional Mexican legends. Recorded live at Pilo's Bar, a celebrated cantina in Guadalupe, Nuevo Leon, Mexico, the album is unfortunately on the short side, including ten songs from the concert and a couple half-minute "Polka la Silla" interludes. The introductory "Polka la Silla" explains the premise of the album, which pays homage to legends of norteo music such as Las Alegres de Tehern, Los Cardenales de Nuevo Len, Los Montaeses del Alamo, Los Invasores de Nuevo Len, and Los Cadetes de Linares. Many of the performed songs are well-known standards; for instance, "Ingrato Amor," originally performed by Los Cardenales de Nuevo Len, has been covered by Alejandro Fernndez and many others over the years. With a decade and a half of recording experience to their name, Pesado are well suited to tribute albums like this and Corridos: Defendiendo el Honor (2008), which was released a year earlier. The difference with Corridos: Defendiendo el Honor is that Desde la Cantina was recorded live (more or less, that is, as it sounds like it was studio edited an awful lot) and features a host of norteo greats, most notably Javier Ros of Los Invasores de Nuevo Len ("Mi Casa Nueva") and Cesareo Snchez of Los Cardenales de Nuevo Len ("Mi Cmplice"). Other featured guests include Eliseo Robles ("Tragos Amargos"), Lorenzo de Monteclaro ("Abrazado de un Poste"), Lupe Tijerina ("Prenda Querida"), and Kiko Montalvo ("Te Cre Decente"). One of Pesado's more interesting albums in that it reveals some of their influences, Desde la Cantina should entertain not only fans of the group but norteo aficionados in general. ~ Jason Birchmeier
