Enough Christmas music, time to get back on track. Just easing back into it, because technically it's still a day off. To be honest, I've done too much running around the past few days to expend a bunch of energy rocking my fool head off. El Chicano will do just fine tonight. Their "Viva Tirado" sounds like Booker T getting high with Carlos Santana. Something like that. It's been posted before, but the link went dead, so here's a new link, and one to the original by Gerald Wilson. Then there's a cover of "Coming Home Baby" from the same 1970 LP. One song I hadn't revisited was "Tell Her She's Lovely", a hit for them in '73. It's as badass as a lazy jam can get. You can fall into the groove, or you can dismiss it as Latin yacht rock, I don't care. It hits the spot, that's all I care about.
