A Lost Masterpiece of Tex-Mextacy 6 Jun. 2006
By Stewart Hickey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Louie and the Lovers were a 1960s Mexican-American rock band from Salinas, California. Their only album,"Rise", released in 1970 on the Epic label, was produced by Texas music legend Doug Sahm of Sir Douglas Quintet fame. I ordered the CD reissue through Amazon after hearing the album's title track on a recent NPR program, and being completely blown away by it.

This album is a lost masterpiece, combining folk-rock, Tex-Mex, R & B, and country music, and featuring brilliant, shimmering pop song crafting by Louie Ortega that is completely devoid of any contrivance or pretense. Some tracks have a very haunting San Francisco "summer of love" vibe, and the band often sounds like a Chicano Tex-Mex variation of the Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Moby Grape, or Creedence Clearwater Revival. In particular, fans of late 60s Sir Douglas Quintet tracks like "Mendocino", "At the Crossroads", and "Catch the Man on the Rise" will find Louie and the Lovers absolutely essential listening.

Louie and the Lovers, Rise album 13 Sept. 2007

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a great album. It must have been overlooked when it was originally recorded. I think it could make a serious comeback. Louie's vocals are outstanding ! The songs really come from the heart. I think this c/d is a "must have" for everyone !!
