El Chican, El Magnifico !

"Whoooaaa, Yeah all right ! This band smokes man, and sounds more like Santana than Abraxas Pool does, in fact it seriously compares to Santana. The sound of the congas has been beautifully captured in the mix and brought to the fore to great effect. The percussion sounds (in parts) like Osibisa's without the cabasa.There are eleven tracks listed on this CD, but the boys have cheated by listing "La Cucuracha" as a song. It's really just a few seconds' jive, an excuse to have some fun and mention MA-RI-HU-ANA! OK, all's forgiven, no one's complaining.All the tracks on this CD are first class. Track one, "Chicano Chant" is very Santana-ish, as is track ten "El Cayuco", and absolutely fabulous. Track 7 "Sabor a mi" is a ballad.....beautiful ! If you want to dance, turn the volume way up high, press continuous play, strip down to your underwear, if you're wearing a bra get rid of it.....outta tha window. Bottle of Tequila in one hand, whatever it is that you smoke on the other, then hit the play button and let 'er rip baby. Dance baby, dance. Yeeee Ha! Then... call an ambulance !"
GOOD STUFF IN ANY LANGUAGE

"Well, here I sit, wondering how I could have so thoroughly
misspent my youth without ever coming across this band. I heard
them on this cd for the first time yesterday. It was recommended
to me by a guy reviewing a "WAR" cd, and I thank him very much.
This is how I would imagine "SANTANA" music would sound if it
wasn't Americanized for mass appeal in the US. Most of the songs
are instumentals and do bear a resemblence to the more Latin
side of "SANTANA".On most of the songs with lyrics I don't have
a clue what their saying, being that I don't understand the
language. But no matter, these guys sound great in any language! This is a first rate cd, and check out the price! I plan to buy
all I can get my hands on by this band. "EL CHICANO"
