 Los Straitjackets - ‘Tis The Season For Los Straitjackets!

Los Straitjackets - ‘Tis The Season For Los Straitjackets! Admittedly, it is a little early to be listening to Christmas music. I could not help myself from putting this on though. By the end of the month, I will have my fill of seasonal music to review, I guarantee it, and then I will be happy that it comes only once a year.

I love surf-instrumental music and have always enjoyed Los Straitjackets. They are so much fun to watch with their colorful Mexican wrestling masks and they have a great sound that is contagious. Well then, now you can put all of that together and have yourself a CD that will get you in the mood for the season. Could there be a better way to jump-start the Holiday’s than to a rockin’ and twangy “A Marshmallow World”? (Released on a red vinyl 45 a few years ago B/W “Sleighride”) or “Feliz Navidad”? Even though it may not seem right without Jose Feliciano’s vocals, it still sounds great. Every song sounds so wonderful! The CD is not too long or too short, it is just right, 13 tracks with longest one being a little over three minutes. You really have to love this kind of music to appreciate it fully, although there may be some converts just waiting for something different to feast their ears upon this year. Usually the only instro Xmas CD that I put on is the “The Ventures Christmas Album,” (who have a new Xmas CD out too) well now I have another one to add to the list.

This CD is like a toboggan ride down a steep hill on a cold December day, the faster you go the more excited you get! There are two key elements that you should recognize, fun and the spirit of giving. Now that is what it is all about folks. Let Los Straitjackets show you the way...
