Biography

"Musically, Alejandro Escovedo is in his own genre." David Fricke, Rolling Stone

Alejandro's whole life has pretty much been documented already and reads like a "How to Make Rock and Roll A Lifelong Profession" primer. Ground Zero punk rock dude with The Nuns (they opened for the Sex Pistols last show, you know), cowpunk progenitor in Rank and File, gutter ... Read more in Amazon's Alejandro Escovedo Store

Editorial Reviews

Two CD edition of the American troubadour's 1992 album. Alejandro Escovedo began his musical career in genre-defying bands like Rank & File, The True Believers and, going further back, legendary Punk band The Nuns. Gravity was his first solo release after nearly 15 years in the music business. Retroworld. 2009.

5.0 out of 5 stars Splendid re-issue!! December 5, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I don't know for the States, but Alejandro Escovedo is unknown in Europe (at least in France), except by special music lovers of course. I discovered him last year only myself, with his beautiful album "A Man Under The Influence". I'm so lucky to have found out this "Gravity" re-issue, along with the "Thirteen Years" one, both are nothing but splendid! Satisfying at any level: the quality of the sound, the beauty of the booklet, of the cover art, and especially of the music! "Gravity" is a masterpiece. As lyrical as the best of Pink Floyd (from "Dark Side" and "The Wall"), as beautiful and pure as the best of the Velvet Underground or Lou Reed (think of the violins of "Street Hassle"), with sometimes rocks as good as the Rolling Stones ones. What could I say more?? The voice of Alejandro is raw and moving. His music is simple and inspired. His subjects are experienced from life. "We fell in love and it's never funny" he sings in "Last To Know".
Bonus CD: eight live songs from the same album, recorded in Santa Monica in 1993, plus a cover of Ian Hunter's "I Wish I Was Your Mother". The customer is happy! :o)

5.0 out of 5 stars simply great July 2, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I keep 4 or 5 disks close to me almost at all times, ones I can listen to any time and they always do something important for me (important *to* me).

_Gravity_ is one of them; as vital to me as _Who's Next_ or _Highway 61 Revisited_, this is an outstanding effort by one of the greatest songwriters going.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic...... September 26, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This earlier solo project is nothing short of incredible. Heartfelt lyrics with great acoustic instrumentation. "Gravity"was follwed by "Thirteen Years" (...), an absolutemasterpiece - talk about singing from the soul.
