His highly anticipated Fantasy Records debut, Street Songs of Love, is a 13-track celebration of survival, liberation and ultimate salvation.

Hard Rocking, High Quality
Old T.B. | Cheyenne, Wy USA | 07/03/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Alejandro Escovedo's Street Songs of Love is a driving, surging tour-de-force of unrelenting rock and roll power. He and his band, the three piece Sensitive Boys, bring the house down with a unique mix of garage band, new wave, and roots rock blended together. Ian Hunter provides guest vocals on Down in the Bowery, and he sounds great, maybe the most vital 71-year-old on the planet. Bruce Springsteen shares vocals on the song Faith. But, the triumph is Escovedo's as he brings songs, many co-written with Chuck Prophet, of the highest quality; there's no filler, musically or lyrically. Most highly recommended."

"Alejandro has been rocking around under the radar for too long. While this CD is a bit poppier it still is pure Al with clever lyrics and catchy tunes. While I mourn the absence of his sting inspired arrangements, the electrified strings of Al and David Pulkingham are all the strings you really need. For those of you not familiar with his entire catalog, you need to change that. A poet, a troubador in the real sense, a renaissace man in his own right and now a sensitive boy. We love you and we do know why!"
Alejandro keeps rolling along

"Alejandro Escovedo's 10th studio album "Street Songs Of Love" continues his winning streak since the "Boxing Mirror" in 2006. Here is a 59 year-old singer songwriter that doesn't seem to be losing any steam since his near death experience with hepatitis C in the mid 2000's.
Highlights on this set are:
This Bed Is Getting Crowded
A great triple play to start of the CD.
The Funky title track.
The duet with Ian Hunter "Down in the Bowery"
The rocking of a "Tender Heart"
The melancholy "After The Meteor Showers"
"Tula" sounds like early Santana.
The mid-tempoed "Undesired".
"Fall Apart With You" - "She cries when she here's Johnny Cash".
"Faith" great song done with Bruce Springsteen on vocals with Alejandro. "Ya gotta have faith!"
"Fort Worth Blue" an instrumental for his late friend and writing partner in the early 90's Stephen Bruton.
P.S. Another great production by Tony Visconti and the great backing band "The Sensitive Boys": David Pulkingham guitar and Keys, Bobby Daniel Bass and Hector Munoz Drums. One of the top 5 CD's so far in 2010."
