Well now, baby, I'm from Texas
And I just wanna let you know
'Bout the ways of life and livin' baby
On them Cottonfields and Crossroads

That's the first verse of Los Lonely Boys' song "Cottonfields and Crossroads". It is a blues song that talks about rural West Texas and the part of town that we don't always get to see.

In turn, that song title is applied to Hector Galan's documentary of the early part of Los Lonely Boys ascent from (very) young men backing their dad, to taking creative control themselves, to becoming an Austin, then national favorite.

And you know what? Mr. Galan takes us to that same part of town in those same rural West Texas towns to show the influences on los hermanos Garza.

Not in a sad or exploitational way, but as a means of setting the scene for the explosive arrival of Los Lonely Boys and Texican Rock and Roll.

For those of you not into long reviews, here's the summary. GO BUY THIS DVD.

What should you as the buyer know in advance? (Yes, I'm convinced you'll buy!)

This is a documentary, not a rock concert flick (although a couple of songs have been added for the DVD release). While several songs are included as backing to the flow of the movie, this is about the boys, their father and mother and families, and a few others who have an insight to offer along the way.

There's been some criticism leveled that the interviews are so tight that they constitute more of an advertisement than an explanation or expansion. Come on. There's not 10 years worth of celebrities and critics to line up and interview - but there are people who know the heart and soul of LLB available to talk to the camera. Advertisement? Lengthy press release?

I discovered the music of Henry, Jojo, and Ringo Garza one day while browsing CDs at a music store. I listened to a sample of the first track, and I did something to me. The second track was as equally great. By the third sample, I had chills. The SRV/Hendrix/Santana guitar sound was pouring out with a unique passion. The harmonies reminded me of The Beatles, America, and Eagles. I purchased the CD and started to search for information about Los Lonely Boys. I related personally to these brothers from San Angelo on many levels.

Before all of this happened, though, there was a story to be told. A story about three brothers and their family and their music. Hector Galan, director of Cottonfields and Crossroads, saw them perform when they were playing in a small Austin bar and felt compelled to capture their electifying stage presense and raw ... yet polished sound. All of this was before Grammys, magazine covers, and television appearances.

Don't make the mistake of concluding that Cottonfields and Crossroads was created as a promotional piece. Galan was at the right place at the right time... and uncovered a familiar story of living in West Texas and growing up as a Mexican-American with all of the richness and strugle that accompanies our raza.

Seeing this film made me even more proud of La Familia Garza and now... La Familia Galan.

I finally was able to see this film in December after a long wait to see it. The Galans did a wonderful job and captured not only the music but the heart of the Garza family.

It was worth wating for, and I will be adding it to my collection.

I have had the honor and priveledge of viewing this Los Lonely Boys documentary several times. Not only is this a story of 3 brothers rise from playing for 'crowds' in small pubs to having national success with their debut self-titled album. It goes in depth into the history of their hometown, growing up poor, and around discrimination. It is a roller coaster of emotions, from laughing to being on the verge of tears. I am happy to say that I can watch this movie over and over.

On the West Texas cap rock, where winter winds howl and summer winds blister, an amazing metamorphosis took place. From hard pan clay and the hard scrabble life of three brothers, Henry, Jojo and Ringo Garza, emerged the fresh, vibrant sound known as Texican rock-n-roll. Director Hector Galan captures this evolution in his heartwarming documentary, "Cottonfields and Crossroads".

La familia es todo becomes the underlying pulse of the film. Father-and-son conflicts, father-and-son dreams fill the screen with the gamut of human emotion. Picking cotton or picking guitar were Enrique Garza's sons' choices in the poor, rural area. Watching Galan's excellent depiction of the family's trials and triumphs puts you IN the Garza shoes and lets you walk a mile.

It's not just music; it's not just trying to stay alive. It's not just faith. It's an electricity that flows through Henry's eloquent guitar riffs, Jojo's amazing bass and Ringo's powerful drums. It's a unity that crowns tight harmony. It's brotherhood and it's family. And the Garzas' hearts, as well as their story, are large enough to welcome us all.

Orale!

I saw Cottonfields and Crossroads at the South by Southwest film festival. I've been waiting to add it to my DVD collection since then. It captures the struggle that all musicians face as they chase down their dreams, and it delivers with magical moments as those dreams come true.
