Louie And The Lovers - Rise Rise
Pop New - LP E 30026 Epic
Sealed 1970 Original, Cut Corner. “Louie & The Lovers' Rise Is A Legendary Album, At Least Among Hardcore Record Collectors. The Album Was Produced By Texas Cult Hero Doug Sahm, Whose Dedicated Following Collects Anything He Recorded And The Band Simply Has A Great Story: They Were A Teenage Mexican-American Garage Band, Inspired Greatly By Creedence Clearwater Revival And To A Lesser Extent The Byrds, Who Were Still In High School And Playing Sets Of All-Original Material When They Gained The Attention Of Sahm And Epic, Leading To This One Album. Finally, The Music Is Really, Really Good, A Fresh And Unpredictable Blend Of Byrdsian Jangle And Psychedelia, CCR-Styled Choogling Boogie, Texas Blues, Mexican Tradition, Old-Fashioned Teen-Beat Rock & Roll, And A Sense Of Popcraft Learned From The Beatles. It's Easy To See Why Sahm Went Crazy For This Band -- They Share A Similar Pan-Cultural Sensibility, Blurring Lines Between Different Musical Styles Not Just Over The Course Of An Album But Within A Song, And It's Done Out Of A Natural Love, Not A Self-Conscious Exercise In Genre-Hopping. Not That Louie & The Lovers Sounds Much Like The Sir Douglas Quintet; They Arrive At A Similar Place By Reinterpreting Shared Influences And Following A Similarly Big-Hearted, Relaxed, And Rocking Vision Featuring The Uniformly Strong Songwriting Of Leader Louie Ortega, Who Pens Memorable Songs In A Variety Of Styles From The Rolling, Countryish "I Know You Know" And The Surging Title Track To The Roadhouse Boogie Of "Rock Me Baby" And The Backwoods Stomp Of "Sittin' By Your River." These Are Songs That Sound Both Fresh And Familiar Upon First Listen And Become More Impressive With Each Spin -- Precisely The Kind Of Music That Becomes A Legend Among Fanatical Record Collectors. Louie & The Lovers Earn Their Place In Rock History, Not Just As One Of The Handful Of Mexican-American Rock Bands Of Their Time, But As One Of The Great One-Shot Wonders Of The Rock & Roll Era. It Really Is As Good As Its Legend Suggests.” Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AMG.... more details
