Los Straitjackets - Rock En Espanol Vol. 1dotdotdot
artworkThis is a very good album of vocal material inspired by those wonderful Mexican 45's from the sixties covering American and British rockers of the day. That alone makes this worth a spin, and for the Reverb Central focus, there's a fine cover of Thee Midnighters' "Whittier Blvd.."
Picks: Whittier Blvd.

Whittier Blvd. dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is a fine updated rockin' rendering of Thee Midnighters' "Whittier Blvd.." It lacks the exuberant shouts and teenage angst of the legendary Chattahoochie single, but surely conveys the edge and spirit. Just plain cool.
