Growing up in a family of ten, a TV is a quite important gap filler and this is why someone like Charo is considered a member of the family to someone like me who did watch my share. Such familiar songs/utterances as 'Cuchi-Cuchi' makes you feel instant warmth inside and followed up by a song like 'Cookie Jar' is just a slice of life from our big household and opening the side with a Speedy Gonzalez song from a favorite cartoon really brings me back to my bright youth. I love this woman!!
Some absolutely kick-ass bands that you will recognize if you have followed this DU blog for any length of time, features: Nick Lowe's Last Chicken In The Shop, Wreckless Eric And The New Rockets, Larry Wallis' Psychedelic Rowdies, Elvis Costello And The Attractions, Ian Dury And The Blockheads, Joe 'King' Carrasco And The Crowns, Any Trouble, The Equators, Tenpole Tudor and Dirty Looks (see below post).
Another band from the Stiff label ala Any Trouble (both in comp. above) that is very good but buried in obscurity...Enjoy! Loving that dude on the left with his facetious look!
I actually was collecting all of their stuff but got rid of it for some reason until some poor kind soul like myself from my vinyl obsession group at facebook told me this was their best album, then saw it again in the cut-out bin for not much money so with instructions bought it and here ya go! (now back to the sell pile...LOL) I do remember one song on it from my grade school AOR radio listening.
