    Rockpango = Rock Party

    The little sticky label on the cover says "First CD of all new material in over three years!" The absolute truth. 1997: "Los Lonely Boys". 2000: "Live At Blue Cat Blues". 2003: "Los Lonely Boys". Then Live At The Fillmore. Sacred. Forgiven. Christmas Spirit. 1969. Keep On Giving. And now, finally, another full album of new material. There's obviously time and care invested in this album. Those wonderfully deep and thoughtful lyrics are sprinkled throughout, but also some musical ... growth ... as the boys try out some new tricks. And for those of you who missed the switch-on-the-fly English to Spanish,'s back! As is quite a bit of Latin rhythm! Of additional special note - the second LLB album on the Playing In Traffic Records label and LLB's Lonely Tone imprint. In track list order: American Idle: A gritty rocker that takes issue with the fact that "Everybody knows you gotta make a dollar just to get along..." Fly Away: Picked as the first single, this catchy acoustic piece will have you wiggling in your seat! Love In My Veins: "I need your love...I need you in my veins." Perhaps predictable lyrics, but the boys have a good time bringing us yet another pass at those words, plus some great guitar work by Henry. Road To Nowhere: One of those painful country-inspired songs that the boys are so good at. "Dressed" with a bit of strings, you'll find some pretty vocal work as well. 16 Monkeys: A big, unexpected departure from the songs we've been given by LLB up to now. When I first heard it, I thought the boys had been spinning Mike Nesmith's "Eldorado To The Moon" or something similar. Funny...almost to the point of bizarre in some places. The verse that picks up "Batman" for example. Rockpango: This one has been performed as the encore at shows for the past year or so, as well as on Jay Leno on 3/28/2011. Hits like a punch in the nose, hard from the first note..."You'll find out life gets bad - don't get mad." Smile: Soulful. I think this one was written by Jojo (although all three are always credited), and certainly he's singing the lead on this pretty, pretty piece! Baby Girl: Unexpected. This one should be put into airplay in the Hispanic radio markets, where I'd expect it to take off right straight up. Change The World: A reminder that we all have the power to make this a different place to live. Porn Star: The title may put some folks off, and there's some unexpected lyrics. If you have very young fans, you might want to give it a listen before handing it over to them. It really is a true-love song - about accepting someone regardless of their foibles or circumstance. Believe: "They call me crazy...cuz I believe in love." Another novel approach, since we don't normally get something this ... hard-rock ... from the boys. Judgment Day: Let's not hide it. You'll swear it is a Stevie Ray Vaughn song, but it is pure LLB. Smile.2: A slightly different arrangement of the same song, piano and strings, prettier and more pain-filled than the other version on this album - if that's possible. Outtakes: Good for a bunch of laughs as the boys cut up at the mike during the recording sessions. Four videos: Free Spirit, Coke In Chicago, Boxing and Warm Up, and a poster, making this a great gift value! This is a really strong album that showcases all the things we've come to love in LLB's music - great harmonies as well as great mus
