MINI LP COVER . Los Rockin Devil's were, throughout the '60s, one of the most successful Mexican rock bands, and we have here a concise yet incredibly diverse greatest hits album culled from the material they recorded for the Orfeon label.
Los Rockin Devil's achieved their continued popularity by churning out great Spanish-language covers of international (mostly British and American) hits. Here they try their hand at material from massive names like The Beatles' "Let It Be (Ven a mi)," Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love (Demasiado Amor)," The Kinks' "Victoria," and Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Up Around the Bend (El Caf de Amor)."
The set starts with their cover of The Beeds' obscure garagey folk-pop gem "Run to Her (Corre tras ella)," and also includes Shocking Blue's "Venus," bubblegum-y pop tracks like "Sugar, Sugar (Azcar azcar)," The Clique/Tommy James & The Shondells' "Sugar on Sunday (Dulce sera)," "Looky Looky" by Giorgio Moroder, and a cover of R.B. Greaves' soul classic "Take a Letter Maria (Lleva Esta Carta Mara)."
Stylistically disparate to be sure, but the group pulls off these different styles with loads of energy, which makes this a really entertaining collection.
