RECOMMENDED READING - THE OLD BARRIO GUIDE TO LOW RIDER MUSIC 1950-1975


Now this is the book that really got my collecting juices flowing. The Old Barrio Guide To Low Rider Music is a truly fascinating look into the world of low rider/cruising music. Ruben Molina takes you back to the roots of rock & roll, through to rhythm & blues, doo wop & soul. The Eastside Sound is well represented here and lists hundreds of songs Chicanos were listening & cruising to.
  The artists are listened in alphabetical order and the author gives biographical data as well as listing the artists' key songs. Ruben also gives you insite as to where you can find & collect these precious songs.
The book is also chocked full of pictures of artists and rare vinyl.
  Now in it's third edition this well written book is an absolute must for the serious collector as well as the casual listener and lover of cruising oldies.

Ruben Molina is an author, record collector and Chicano Soul historian. He continues to promote live concerts in the Southern California area. He is also part of a group of record collectors group called "The Soul Spinners" who spin their vinyl 45's at local venues.
