Editorial Reviews

Product Description

'Heard It On The X ' is the third album from the Grammy Award winning Los Super Seven project. Telarc. 2005.

Amazon.com

This supergroup with ever-changing personnel (no longer limited to seven) is less a band than a bilingual concept and boundary-crossing vision. The third and most rambunctious release under the Los Super Seven banner takes its title from the ZZ Top anthem celebrating the Mexican border radio of the 1950s and '60s. With the title track sung by Tejano mainstay Ruben Ramos, the transgenerational duet on "Cupid" by Freddy Fender and Rick Trevino, and the alcohol-fueled mariachi of "The El Burro Song" performed by the Mavericks' Raul Malo (a ringer of Cuban descent), the Hispanic imprint on the project remains much in evidence. From the northern side of the musical border, Lyle Lovett revives Bob Wills's "My Window Faces the South," Rodney Crowell renews Buddy Holly's "Learning the Game," and Joe Ely covers Holly acolyte Bobby Fuller's "Let Her Dance."

Perhaps the album's dominant influence is that of the late Doug Sahm, whose Sir Douglas Quintet was a Tex-Mex trailblazer. Sahm's spirit is channeled here through two songs he wrote--"I'm Not that Kat (Anymore)," sung by John Hiatt, and the jazzy "The Song of Everything," performed by Raul Malo--and another one he recorded, "Talk to Me," given a soulful reading by Delbert McClinton. However wide the musical range, the results rarely fall short of super. --Don McLeese

5.0 out of 5 stars Different But Still Great April 15, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When I saw Los Super Seven had a new album-I ordered it sight (and sound) unseen. The first two albums were SO great there was no question- just buy it. I tore it open, threw it in the CD player in my car and was shocked to hear what others have mentioned-no sign of anyone from Los Lobos, very little Spanish language music, and alot of rock and roll...albeit superb rock and roll.

Don't be deterred by this-change is always good, and this change is wonderful. To say that this album doesn't belong under the banner of Los Super Seven misses the point: simply put-everyone who has been in LS7 grew up on this music, and therefore it is legitimately part of the series- and in fact an essential part of the series.

Border Radio (and I was thrilled by every word of the wonderful history written in this package) exemplified what LS7 is all about-cross musical and cultural pollination. This collection of updated and heartfelt updates does for Border Radio what the other albums did for Mexican and Cuban styles; brings it together and expands the vision by combining the original artists with those who grew up influenced by their innovations.

This is a GREAT record...the musicianship is superb, production and mixing wonderful, modern while never forgetting the ethos of the border radio music; hot, raw and smokin'.

Liste- I never thought I would love a ZZ Top song either (being an ethinc music snob) but that is not the point, the point is to experience and expand understanding and knowledge about an essential piece of uniquely American music- and on that count alone- this album fits in the series like a glove. Beyond that- this is a wonderful record- the ultimate back yard rockin' party record.

5.0 out of 5 stars " Heard it on the X" -- You MUST buy this C.D. April 14, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The music in this c.d. is crisp, finger snapping, toe tapping, and I hope you buy it. I just got it in the mail and I have been listening to it every day, night, and at work!

I had never heard of the " X" radio stations. I had heard of many of the musicians but had not personally listened to their music. This music opened up another culture to me. And I want more.

This music is saucy, sexy, jazzy, and with a good dose of blues. This c.d. will make you feel as if you are listening to the music at a plaza in a border town. It made me start salivating for a libation of the tequila kind. Yes, it can be labeled "Texican " but it's that and so much more. This music is what laid the foundation for groups like Z.Z.Top.

The amount of talent on this c.d. is mind blowing. It had to be great. If you don't know all of them you will get to know them. The music is that good.

After having more than one boy friend who was an alcoholic I found it refreshing to hear a man ( Raul Malo) sing about his girl friend being SO hung over she can't get up.

The El Burro Song is sung with heart and grace, as only Raul can do. The sonic fusion of Calexico, Mariachi Relampago, and Raul's smooth, virile-fueled voice is pure musical alchemy! This is the first song on the c.d. and after hearing this song, you too will be hooked. The next song is " Cupido" which brings the collaboration of Freddie Fender and Rick Trevino. It's a dynamite combination and I hope they do more music together. " Cupido dame la mano" - Cupid help me, lend me a hand.

It's tastefully done and this song will have you heading for the fridge for some kind of libation. I know it made me.

Every single song is great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Compare This To LSS 1&2. Just Enjoy It! May 29, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I have Los Super Seven's first two CDs and they kill. Wonderful original music; a cross-cultural blend of latin-american, carribean, and brazilian herbs and spices. But as indicated by another reviewer don't expect that with LSS 3. This is more traditional border music represented individually by blues, tex-mex, and country swing. It may not be original but who cares! This is great music. With each playing the songs get better and my toes tap harder.

Great music for a party or a prelude to good lovin'.

Buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars More a Concept than a Band CD May 21, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I did not come to this CD with any pre-conceived notions. I had not heard of Los Super Seven and have not heard the prior CD's. The only song I had heard perviously was the ZZ Top tune that gives the recording its title. I heard snipets of the music in a review on the radio and thought it sounded hot. The full CD lives up to the promise of the snipets. It is really a collection of different styles and music -- latin styles I have heard but cannot name, a sort of country swing, rock, blues. It is music that was played on border radio partly because there was no outlet for it on the main stream stations. "Song of Everything" is my favorite. "Heard It On the X" is also good. Owing to the mix, this CD is a little like listening to a good cross cultural radio or music television station in the southwest. Appreciate it for what it is -- a tribute to the boarder radio of the 50's and 60's -- and this is a very enjoyable CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars This Is Not Really A Review September 19, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Just three observations:

1) Delbert McClinton has become the American Van Morrison

2) Given the music that this album pays tribute to, it could have used a little more spit and a little less polish. That is to say that the proceedings are a bit too tasteful in an NPR kind of way.

3) Observation #2 won't matter that much if you play this CD loud enough, and with the right beer. (I recommend Bohemia.)
