Product Notes

'...an energetic combination of original and traditional songs. The vocal interplay between Luján and Elliott Baribeault is playful and pleasing throughout Margie's. Their original songs, mostly penned by Baribeault, hold up impressively well when stacked side-by-side against the music of their predecessors. Baribeault displays a keen interest in the foibles of human relationships. His dark tales of drinking and loving are sometimes humorous ('Liquor Stores') and sometimes quite disturbing beneath the relentlessly festive music ('She Said, He Said,' a tale of an abusive lover that ends in a murder-suicide). Los Pochos has more going on than meets the ear on first listen. These toe-tapping, dance-friendly songs have a layer of darkness that makes the celebration all the more poignant. When they salute their ancestors, they do so mostly through traditional Conjunto music, but Hank Cochran and Harlan Howard's 'I Fall To Pieces' is also given a loving treatment.' -- Adam McKibbin, Entertainment Today - This collection of songs spans from traditional standards to new original work, all the while you'll find yourself tapping your feet to the different rhythms--if you can resist the urge to dance. Conjunto los Pochos has developed their unique sound that combines elements of both Texas and Mexico Conjunto styles...from Polkas and boleros to waltzes and Country, the band mixes it up on this eclectic album to pay tribute to their musical predecessors and showcase new original music. Joining the band on this full length debut are Ernesto Molina (bass) and Lorenzo Martinez (drums), while musician friend, Ned Albright, plays rhythm guitar on 'I Fall To Pieces.' 'We had a lot of fun making the album...it was a labor of love. We hope you enjoy it, too...listen, dance, enjoy!'
