Just another band from Buenos Aires

"This band show their influences on their sleeves on this double CD compilation of tracks from 8 CDs. There are two bonus tracks, a remix of the excellent 'Mal bicho' and a mellow live singalong rocker, 'Igual a quien'.I was deceived by the particapation of Mick Jones into thinking that the style of The Clash was the only well from which they drank. Instead, they show their assimilation of Madness, the Skatalites, the Beatles and Fishbone as well as the rhythms of Latin America such as Brazilian samba and drum choirs and tango from their native Argentina. Their version of 'Strawberry Fields Forever' is first rate with guest vocals by Deborah Harry of Blondie and tasty horn solos set to a strict ska tempo. Even my 75 year old mother likes that one! It should be noted that the track listing for the second CD is incorrect and that most tracks on both discs are real corkers, as we say on my planet! Los Fabulosos Cadillacs are leaders of the 'rock en espagnol' (Rock in spanish) movement and my guess is that Los Lobos have a lot to answer for and that these boys deserve the praise. You don't need to speak Spanish to enjoy this album, but you do need to know how to have....FUN!"
