It's not for everyone, but I grew up on it. Just found my dad's cd stash and have been going to town.
I rank Hidalgo's voice up there with Tom Petty's for when you need some mellow stuff to just chill to, especially when in a haze...

inb4 los lonely boys comparison too

I know that and Cancion del mariachi, great songs.

Never really checked them out, though.

Liked a couple of the singles i'd hear over a period of years so I went to see them with booker t recently.

What. A. Disappointment. They turned up late and made absolutely no effort, playing was sloppy as well. Did all these lame 'bleh' rubbish pop songs. I didn't stay to the end, to be honest.

Damn, that's a shame. I saw them in the late 90's (This Time tour I think) and it was a fabulous show, they were really into it.

Hopefully Booker T was better, especially if Marc Ford was with him.
