Thank you very much for your trip back in time where music,life and friends meant so much during those turbulent years. Sincerly, Joe Brambila
the music, the artists and their environment, would enjoy this book. The photographs, which are numerous, underscore the text very nicely. It is no coincidence that P.B.S. has recently aired a great special, based largely on this book.
Mr. Reyes' and Waldman's rich photo archives accompany a history that may well have been lost had they not carefully documented it for us. The musical influences of artists like Richie Valens, Thee Midnighters, Cannibal and the Headhunters, Mark Guerrero, "Grammy Award" winning musician Carlos Santana, El Chicano, Tierra, and Malo are particularly interesting. Future generations of Hispanics and non-Hispanics will be blessed with the memories and experiences that the pioneers of Chicano Rock-n-Roll had with this enchanted cruise with sounds of the barrio, a magical blend of cultures that brought forth these "Oldies but Goodies"!
so many of the bands were known to me. If you get a chance you should grab this book, all the best, jimmy B.
