EAST SIDE LEGENDS - ROBERT AND REY


Not much is known about this Mexican-Amercian vocal duo from Watts, California. In 1962 Jay Wilkerson (Wilks & Wilkerson) brought a song he had written called "I Found A New Love" to producer Billy Cardenas. Robert and Rey recorded "I Found A New Love" and "Please Forgive Me" backed musically by the Romancers at Cadet Studios. The masters were given to owner, Danny Hernandez who released them on his Music label (Music 2473).

HOMEMADE COMPILATIONS - UNDER THE COVERS (ON THE LATIN SIDE) SERIES

For those of you who follow this site, there have been no new posts for the past couple of months due to some personal medical issues. I am happy to say that I am receiving medical treatments, am feeling much better and will continue examining the Eastside Sound.

Commuting on the freeways of Los Angeles can be a very frustrating ride. To help control my road rage I put together musical compilations to listen to in my car CD player. From time to time I still enjoy the sights & sounds of cruising Whitier Boulevard and you gotta have some cool sounds to listen to.

What started out as a couple of volumes from my own collection has blossemed into a series. I have always enjoyed listening to and collecting "cover versions" of classic tunes by other artists. Chicano artists of yesterday and today have always been in the forefront of covering oldies and soulful tunes. In recent years I have made it a habit to attend Chicano Soul concerts and found that there are many artists new & old that are still performing and keeping this music alive The music is truly worth seeking out and buying. Please help support these artists.

But the true inspiration for my recent collecting and this series is disc jockey, Chico Manqueros of the East LA Revue site and his progam "Gozando With Chico". Chico brings us a show with a mixture of latin Soul, jazz, the sounds of congas, timbalas, saxophones, trumpets, guitarras and the best in suave rhythms. He plays many cover songs by artists of today and yesterday and does a firme job in his selection and musical tastes. You can check Chico out here:

I can't say enough good things about Steven Chavez and his staff & the marvelous job they do at the East LA Revue site. This site is historical, educational and provides the finest in listening pleasure. If you have not been to the site you are truly in for a musical treat. Please follow this link:

As for my compilations, they are NOT for sale so please don't ask.

  Just a sample of some of these artists who performing today are the Salas Brothers and Tierra, Rico Del Barrio, Sammy Medina & Balance, The Big Manny Band, Los Fabulocos, Freddie G & The Smooth Response Band, Valentina Estrada and geez the list goes on & on.
