Editorial Reviews

This two-DVD set features a complete documentary and unique reunion-concert taped in May 2008 at The Avalon in California. El Chicano means "the Mexican-Americans". Their music is influenced by Rhythm & Blues and Latin-America sounds. When Latin funk and Latin rock started in the 70s in the San Francisco and Los Angeles area, a number of groups emerged: Azteca, El Chicano, Los Lobos, Malo, Santana - to name the most important ones. This DVD covers the story and music of the individuals who created this groundbreaking rock band. Hailing from the Los Angeles area, El Chicano would come to fruition during the rise of the Mexican-American (or "Chicano") movement during the late sixties, enduring heavy responsibility and strife, while continuing the struggle of remaining a consistent force in music. Witness the historic reunion show, and hear the stories of men who stood by their new brand of music and their movement, both of which have never truly died. El Chicano Musicians: Mickey Lespron - Guitar, Bobby Espinosa - Organ/Piano, Fred Sanchez - Bass, John DeLuna - Drums, Rudy Regalado - Timbales, Jerry Salas - Vocals/Guitar, and Marcos Reyes - Congas.

5.0 out of 5 stars El Chicano: In the Eye of the Storm December 6, 2009
Format:DVD
Rock & Roll has a unique sound that, despite its variations, in many cases can be pigeonholed into that category. Santana represents one of those variations, with the incorporation of a strong percussion that provides rhythmic support - via congas and timbales --to the old-fashioned drums. His sound is recognizable and separates his band from the rest. However, the contributions of other Latin bands, mainly of Mexican decent, deserve equal credit in the history of recorded music. They were responsible of the so-called "Brown Sound," which was represented by Tierra, El Chicano, War, Malo, and others, with Los Lobos being the most recent, successful addition to this prestigious group. Unfortunately, visual images by means of commercial DVDs are lacking to present the excitement of their music to the world. Enter "El Chicano: In the Eye of the Storm," a passionate and electrifying double-disc DVD set that sheds some light about this magnificent band from East Los Angeles.

The first disc of this set features the documentary "El Chicano: In the Eye of the Storm," directed by Daniel E. Meza, in which we learn the history of El Chicano. The band was created in the sixties, and it was originally called The V.I.P.s. It was during the recording of their classic hit "Viva Tirado" that a producer named them El Chicano, which they didn't object at the time. This move, fortunately or unfortunately, depending of you point of view, married them to the nascent Chicano movement (Chicanos are people of Mexican descent born in the United States). This automatically connected them to the acid politics of the movement, which tried to improve the lives of Chicanos in the United States.

If you remember El Chicano, then I recommend you get this DVD before it becomes unavailable. This group goes back to the 60s & 70s and they were on a roll with hits such as Cubano Chant, Elenor Rigby, Tell Her Shes Lovely, and the famous Viva Tirado.
