A great band that, though having a few hits, never really hit it as big as they deserved. A recent LA Times writer even called them a one hit wonder. What an (completely undeserved) insult! Click HERE to hear them and read my review.
By the time I first discovered this band, ten years after they first came together, one of them was dead, another was quite ill and they hadn't toured in years. But this Tex-Mex supergroup left a great catalog of music that is as timeless as the "both sides of the border" roots music that inspried them. Click HERE for more.
Because they were my father's favorite band, I grew up with The Mills Brothers sound as much as any musical group from my generation. But it took me years to appreciate just how truly good they were. Just four voices and a guitar, yet their incredible full sound (made by vocally simulating orchestral instruments) made them one of the top acts of the 1930's and 40's. Click HERE for more.
