I ran into this LP today and to be quite frank with you people, I fucking hate this song. In fact, I was going to choose another tune off this album but I had a change of heart. The reason being that one can’t deny Santana’s Latin rock cover crossover version of Oye Como Va (listen, hey what’s up?) had a pretty big impact on thousands of crappy bands south of the border. I can’t tell you how many albums I have that shamefully try to sound like the San Francisco based Latin hippie rock group. But to be honest with you I love crossover music, so given that, I have tons of respect. Purchased this one in Mexico City a while back.
Los Souls played in small clubs and Hotels in Mexico City’s Zona Rosa (red light district) throughout the 70’s. Some members went on to start a prog rock group, some became taxi drivers, one became a principle of an elementary school, and the drummer died in a plane crash (cause that what happens to all rock drummers). Actually I’m totally lying to you. I have no idea what this band is all about but I have the feeling I’m not far from the truth.
