So excited! On Friday I received something through the post… the new album by the Mavericks! The Mavericks are a band I have followed for many years, and not only have they brought me music, they have brought me many friends, much travel, much fun and excitement!
They have history, of course they do, and personal heartbreak as things have not worked out well in the past, but now they are united as ‘a very fortunate band of brothers’ as they describe themselves.
This new album contains sixteen fabulous live recordings of some of the best of their music – only ‘some of’ because they have an enormous catalogue of truly fabulous music, much written by Raul Malo. As well as Raul, the band consists of Paul Deakin, Eddie Perez, Jerry Dale McFadden, and a consistent team who appear on this album of Michael Guerra, Max Abrams, Matt Cappy and Ed Friedland.
If you haven’t yet got any Mavericks music, a whole world of joy, delight and excitement awaits you… if you have some of their albums, get the rest, and if you have the rest, get this one too!
PS. One of the most exciting things is what is written bottom right of the cover… “Volume 1” … a definite signal of more to come!
