Friend for Life
In the mid 70s, as the lead singer of legendary group El Chicano, Arvizu and the band came to be known as premier ambassadors of the East LA sound - an amalgam of rock, jazz, R&B, and Latin Groove. FRIEND FOR LIFE is Arvizu's story strung into a dozen songs - sung both in Spanish and English - songs of love, despair and survival. A recording that's both intimately personal and dance floor approachable. Produced by Ry Cooder. RIYL: Buena Vista Social Club, Santana, War.
