The Blazers- Nobody Told Me

The rockin' is over.

I've been giving "just another band from east L.A." a lot of thought in anticipation of the new Los Lobos release next Tuesday. I revere their electronic experimentation and even happily tolerate their increasing jamband tendencies. But sometimes I miss the old sound- music that's anything but affected. That's one of the many reasons I love The Blazers. It may be unfair, but the Blazers will be forever tagged as Los Lobos' little brothers. Their catalog is an underrated treasure. The Pete Anderson-produced Just For You seems to be out-of-print, but plenty of copies are available at bargain prices here.
