The Tease – Juicy Fruit – Move Along Baby – Rockin Mabel
Santos is a young hepcat from El Salvador who came to LA with his guitar over his shoulders and knocked out the Wild Records staff. He soon released that four titles Cd (an Ep like in the good old times!) backed by Omar Romero on lead guitar, Iggy Garcia on upright bass and Jessie Gomez/Angel Hernandes on drums. There is two songs written by Santos (one with the help of Omar) and two covers. The covers “Juicy Fruit” from Joe Turner (a surprising rockabilly rendition) and Johnny Carroll’s “Rockin’ Mabel” (one of Santos most obvious influence) are furious. The other songs “Move Along Baby” -a foaming bopper- and the eponymous “Tease”- a stroller- are just hotter than hell!! Mama mia, that boy is fantastic. Please Santos give us rapidly more than four tracks
