LOS LONELY BOYS ROCKPANGO REL. DATE – 3/29/11

Can anything even more magical happen in the already charmed career of Los Lonely Boys? You bet. It’s called Rockpango, their first self produced long player on their own LonelyTone/Playing In Traffic Records. And yeah, it’s magical indeed.

At least as magical — and maybe more so — as debuting in 2003 with ... Read more in Amazon's Los Lonely Boys Store

Editorial Reviews

Five years after crossing into the mainstream with GRAMMY-winning single Heaven, the brothers Garza celebrate 1969, a tribute to one of America s most hallowed years. Invoking the spirit of a generation that walked the moon and transcended cultural boundaries at Woodstock, Los Lonely Boys praise the songs that provided a soundtrack for generations and inspired their multi-platinum success. With their signature blend of Latin rhythms, searing guitar leads, and impeccable harmonies, the band traces their artistic lineage through tracks like Santana s Evil Ways and The Beatles She Came In Through the Bathroom Window.
Legendary engineer Andy Johns provides timeless and incendiary mixing. In addition to recording Blind Faithâ TMs Well All Right, also a featured track on the EP, Johns is known for his work on Led Zeppelin II, III, IV, and Exile on Main St.
Headlining tour starts Oct. 1 with Alejandro Escovedo

I don't know how, or why they picked this somewhat diverse mix of rock/pop/blues songs to cover, but surprisingly, it pretty much works.

"Evil Ways" - one of Carlos Santana's many signature hits - wouldn't be a stretch for LLB, with it's soulful Latin-rhythm-rock, but the Beatles's "She Came in Through the Bathroom Window" whoa! who'd a thunk it?!

"Polk Salad Annie" originally written and sung by Tony Joe White (it had a lot of brass in that incantation, whereas LLB's doesn't), is a fun funk-groove song.

With the Doors awesome classic "Roadhouse Blues", LLB chose to carry over that funk-groove from Polk Salad Annie.

The first two thirds of, "Well Alright" (written by Buddy Holly according to the composer info in iTunes as Charles Hardin Holley, I looked up the name in Wikipedia) comes off sounding kind of like the Allman Brothers, then morphs into some free wheeling guitar and drums.

All in all, nothing mind-blowing here except maybe the concept, but a fun listen nonetheless!

1969 is an EXCELLENT set of covers by Los Lonely Boys. The group sounds as good as they ever did; and the arrangements and the mixing couldn't be any better on this EP. Every one of these five tunes is a classic and Los Lonely Boys put their own stamp on all five of them using a few key and tempo changes here and there plus some mighty special vocals; and it all works very well. I love it!

The EP album opens with Los Lonely Boys doing a great job on Santana's "Evil Ways." The guitars are awesome and these guys make this tune electric with a rendition that ups the tempo just a little that amazingly adds quite a bit of extra energy to this tune. The Garza brothers really do this one up right--hey, is that Santana I see getting jealous?

"Well Alright," a number written by Buddy Holly, Norman Petty, Jerry Allison and Joe B. Maudlin, gets the royal treatment from Los Lonely Boys--and wow, what a great effect this has! There's a noticeable Latin flavor added to some awesome rockin' music with those guitars and drums especially. Now THIS is great music! There's also a fantastic cover of The Beatles' "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window;" Los Lonely Boys yet again score a huge goal by taking this and mixing it up just a bit with a Latin flavor--and they play with the tempo and keys just enough to keep it quite strong in their own way. The Beatles would have approved!

"Polk Salad Annie" rocks as Los Lonely Boys perform this tune originally written and recorded by Tony Joe White and later re-recorded by the great Elvis Presley. "Polk Salad Annie" leaves little to be desired as Los Lonely Boys do this to perfection! Their sense of timing and that really cool arrangement make this a winning number yet again.

I've been a serious LLB fan since 2004, have seen them live several times, they are an AMAZING live band - (watch their DVD "Live From Austin") and they are enormously talented musicians and singers. But I was surprised the band released this EP of cover songs. LLB can play nearly anything but I agree with RKocham that this release feels like a "stop gap" to prolong putting out their next album. The first album, "Los Lonely Boys", is a classic and they deserved all the accolades. It seems LLB is at an impasse. Will they keep their roots of rock/blues/tejano or will they go mainstream commercial? It will be interesting to see what they produce under the new label. "1969" is good, not great. Not so good: "Well Alright" and "Roadhouse Blues."

As a child of the 60's and 70's, I was anxious to get my hands on a copy of this CD. They did not disappont me! Of all five tracks, I have to say I was a little confused by the addition of "Well All Right", being a Buddy Holly tune. Holly died years before 1969... But the Garza Bros did the song justice nonetheless. My first impression was a good one, listening to Santana's "Evil Ways". I was glad they didn't take too much creative license with the song, out of respect for Carlos, of course. I really have to say they put their own unique signature on each one of the tunes on this CD. "She Came In Thru The Bathroom Window" was amazing and nostalgic. Tony Joe White's "Polk Salad Annie" I think was the one song I was most impressed with. It's hard to follow T.J. White, but it was done with total respect to his genre and back-woodsy Southern style. The last track, "Roadhouse Blues" had me dancing like I had good sense...I'm a "sorta old" lady... I don't dance that much anymore. What a joy it was to listen to a reprise of great music given the proper respect by these 21st Century musical geniuses!! Kudos to my Texas home boys! Los Lonely Boys ROCK!!!

I have really enjoyed this cd. Being a 60's guy, I believe that the 60's had the best rock music ever. Including many of the best bands in the history of rock.
Back to this CD, all the songs are really done well, like only LLB can. I would have loved a CCR song or two included, such as (Born on The Bayou)or(Suzy Q)from 1969. But really, they can probably do justice on hundreds of 60's songs, I've heard them do at least 20 of them in several of their early shows. This CD is great to have. Mix it with original LLB songs a see how well they compliment.
GET THIS CD, IT'S OUTSTANDING
Ramos
