CD Reviews

Very original sound!
CJ Can | Fountain Valley, CA | 04/05/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Ok, first, I have to say, this man is my Uncle (I know him as "Uncle Zeke" for Ezekiel). So, anything I say is biased. But here goes anyway... Uncle Zeke has a very original voice and songs like "Call Me", "The More I See You", and "I Ran" are simply fantastic. No, he's nothing like Ritchie Valens and I don't think he ever wanted to be. He was a solo artist from the 60's who happened to be hispanic - so everyone drew up comparisons. But listen to his music. A hint of the Beach Boys in the early years and something sounding completely original in the latter part of his career. Nothing like Valens. And he was very original. You should buy it."
Nice representation of Chris Montez' career
J. B Brent | Oak Ridge, Tennessee USA | 05/04/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This compilation of the two phases of Chris Montez' career was a welcome find, since no domestic CD existed and his LPs have been out of print for years. The Monogram cuts (1962-1964) showcase his phase as a protege of Richie Valens or aspiring Latin rocker. I've always enjoyed the organ part on "Let's Dance," which compensates for a relatively weak vocal. The A&M phase (1965-1968) is well represented, although there was ample space on the disc for more songs. The party atmosphere of these recordings, plus the instrumental work of Julius Wechter and Pete Jolly, compliment Montez' vocal style well, resulting in a satisfying and upbeat effect. What makes this package really special is the thorough and well organized biographical and recording history notes. This information is valuable because the LPs lacked complete credits. What we really need now are reissues of Chris' A&M albums THE MORE I SEE YOU-CALL ME, TIME AFTER TIME, FOOLIN' AROUND, WATCH WHAT HAPPENS and CARTAS DE AMOR. All are late 60s except the latter, sung in Spanish and issued in 1983 on A&M Discos (Mexico)."
Brings back some early memories
William G. Robles | APO, AP USA | 05/01/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

""Call me" brings back a personal favorite slice of time. Chris Montez and others from this era such as Herb Alpert, Petula Clark, Dusty Springfield, Sergio Mendes and Tom Jones will remain with me forever. If you have fond memories of the mid-sixties and the smooth easy-listening music that was popular, pick up this CD."
