Delgado Brothers - Let's Get Back 1999 (REPOST)
Release Date: Aug 24, 2004
Recorded at Pacifica Studios,
Los Angeles, California
"...the all original material, which melds blues, rock, funk and even New Orleans R & B elements, is affectingly personal." Billboard"Brotherhood never sounded so simple or so sweet" Blues Revue Magazine"These guys cook! With that [John] "Juke" ... Full DescriptionLogan-produced essential, GROOVE GREASE...party time, with deep soul!" Pasadena WeeklyFather of the British Blues, John Mayall, chose to cover two Delgado Brothers original tunes for his latest release. Both songs can be heard in their original form here on "Let's Get Back..." This team of brothers have been playing their distinct East LA sounds together for years, with big brother Bob laying down the bass, Joe tearing it up on guitar, and adding his smoky vocals, and Steve rounding things out, drumming and leadsinging. From their early days in El Monte, California, their neighborhood jam sessions (beautifully depicted in their tune "Church of El Monte") would bring in musicians and friends alike, like Ray Solis, a kick-ass percussionist, and David Hidalgo, who went on to form the now legendary band, Los Lobos, who appears as a guest artist on their latest release."Let's Get Back..." on Mocombo Records, produced by legendary Blues harpman John "Juke" Logan, has been described as a standout in the sometimes similar sounding genre that can be the Blues.
Living Blues (1-2/00, p.98) - "...sounds somewhere between Los Lobos and Robert Cray, but the intervening years have given their music increased maturity and assurance....This an excellent release..."
