Here’s something you don’t see very often, at least around here. A private album of a mostly Mexican bar band doing 70s rock and pop covers. This was recorded sometime after 1975 in Salem, at Cherry Studios. The studio, which is still in business, was run at least in part by recording engineer Ron Skog. Will report back if they recall the record.

I had pretty high hopes from the cover and photos of these guys. They look totally awesome. Then on first listen seemed like kind of a bust, but has really grown on me. And for a sweet bonus they do a cover of Tumbling Dice, the opening track from The Rolling Stones classic Exile on Main St. What is up with their change to the first line of the song?
