    Not Just Another Side Project From East L.A.

    After working with Los Lobos on their albums, ''The Neighborhood'' and ''Kiko,'' the team of producer Mitchell Froom and engineer Tchad Blake joined David Hidalgo and Louie Perez to craft this amazing album. The music is a melting pot of roots music and border radio, recorded with Froom's trademark studio experimentation. An array of sound textures adorn the tracks, from fuzzed-out guitar and junkyard percussion to sampled snippets of Perez' grandmother laughing and Indian wedding music. The sessions were captured on a simple four-track, and the album displays a warmth and richness that is a true lo-fi accomplishment. Fans of Tom Waits' later work (''Rain Dogs'' and ''Bone Machine''), Mitchell Froom's other productions (like his solo release ''Dopamine'' and Suzanne Vega's ''99.9F''), and of course Los Lobos' recent stuff will no doubt find the Latin Playboys quite rewarding. It is a sonic wonder that grows deeper with each listen. ''Manifold de Amour'' and ''Forever Night Shade Mary'' were included on the soundtrack to Robert Rodriguez' ''Desperado'' the following year. Froom went on to produce Los Lobos' ''Colossal Head,'' and Hidalgo joined Cesar Rosas in Los Super Seven before the Playboys returned with their adventurous, and cleverly-titled, follow-up release, ''Dose.''
