Product Notes

The definite Louie and The Lovers anthology, includes the mythical, but never before released second album. This CD contains all non-album single tracks plus previously unreleased outtakes. The album was compiled with co-operation from Louie Ortega himself. Comprehensive liner notes, luxury Digipak lavishly illustrated with previously unpublished photos. Produced by Doug Sahm (plus Jerry Wexler, Tom Dowd, Glen Kolotkin) - A tex-mex/chicano-rock masterpiece! In 1970, Louie and The Lovers released the album 'Rise'. It didn't sell at the time, but has been treasured among music lovers ever since. Produced by legendary Texan roots rocker Doug Sahm, the young band (every member was yet to turn twenty) came across like a Salinas Valley Boy version of Creedence Clearwater Revival infused with a pinch of tex-mex Big Star. Album opener 'Rise' is blistering power-pop dressed up in heavenly vocal harmonies and guitar hooks galore while I've Always Got You On My Mind and I Just Met You are soulful ballads, endlessly and timelessly beautiful. Royal Oakie is rough, lose happy-go-lucky roots rock. Why the 45rpm single Driver Go Slow didn't chart is now hard to understand. No wonder Peter Buck (of R. E. M. -fame) is a huge fan of Louie and The Lovers. This CD expands the original 'Rise' with non-album single tracks, session outtakes and most sensational; an entire, previously unreleased second Louie and The Lovers album! This Bear Family anthology was produced with assistance from our main man himself. In the comprehensive CD-booklet Louie Ortega reveals the full story of his band. Deep inside the singer's private wardrobe we detected scrap book pictures documenting Louie and The Lovers in full force during a recording session
