Bats'i Son made New York's Other Music Best of 2004:
BATS'I SON "Music of the Highlands of Chiapas" (Latitude / Locust Music)
When the dense fog of the Aquarian days of self-discovery lifted, many travelers found themselves in faraway places. Richard Alderson found himself in Chiapas, Mexico, newly emigrated, with a pair of Electrovoice (667) mics and an incredible knack for finding amazing indigenous music in the highlands. A newly remastered version of his virtually unheard Folkways releases, originally issued in the mid-'70s, not to be missed. [JR]
