Time To Dive Into Bear’s Vinyl Vault! [VIDEO]
Sometimes going thru my record collection is like going on an archeological dig. Since we are in the dog days of summer I thought I would dig up this summer classic!
Malo was an American Latin- tinged rock and roll group. The San Francisco, California based ensemble was led by Jorge Santana, the brother of Latin-Rock guitarist, Carlos Santana.
Malo had a huge Top 20 hit single with the song “Sauvecito” in 1972 that was written by timbale player Richard Bean, who initially wrote it as a poem for a girl in his high school algebra class. The song has been called “The Chicano National Anthem” From April of 1972 where it peaked on the Top 40 chart at #18 this is Malo and Sauvecito in Bears Vinyl Vault.
After the release of its first album, Malo had a well-documented rift that saw the group eliminate many of its band members. Some of whom went on to play with Blood Sweat & Tears. Jorge Santana has embarked on a solo career, and still plays frequently with the current Malo band. Malo is also still touring.
Enjoy this summer classic and something nice and cold to drink!
