CD Reviews

John T. Howton | Atlanta, GA United States | 08/06/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Like Malo, El Chicano is the OTHER 'Santana' type band that needs to be heard by all!!! With a TIGHT rhythm section, haunting melodies, enchanting lyrics, & a BEAT that goes on & on, this CD showcases this amazing, talented Latin 'Superstar' band at their finest!!! A jazz influence lingers throughout - along with gorgeous lyrics. Highlights include 'Viva Tirado', 'Cantaloupe Island', & 'Ahora Si' - but their FINEST masterpiece simply HAS to be the magical & romantic 'Tell Her She's Lovely'!!! And WHAT a MASTERPIECE this song is!!! I love Santana - but 'Tell Her She's Lovely'- (along with the classic Malo song 'Suavecito') - rival ANY hits by the amazing Santana!!! For sheer delight, put this CD, the classic 'Malo' CD, & your favorite Santana CD's & click on 'random play'!!! Now THAT is what we call 'Latin Heaven'!!! ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

"I was hooked within 30 seconds on the first cut. It has a latin flair that evokes thoughts of Santana and Booker T. I loved it, and I think you will too!!!"

"This is regarding the correct email adress to chorizo records concerning the BACK TO THE BARRIO compilation cd.the email is Though I Hear this is gonna be a great collection, those of you into the classic latin rock-latin soul sounds of the 70's MUST HAVE THIS CD!! This is a standard right next to Santana. EL CHICANO opened the doors to other great latin rock bands like Santana had done for them. Viva El chicano has great songs like the salsa rock classic El Cayuco,and funky jazz-rock like Viva tirado and Cantaloupe island. Tell her she's lovely is a latin soul/rock classic with great lyrics and and sweet vocals. YOU NEED THIS CD IN YOUR COLLECTION!!"
