Review

“Following their debut 7" release, the Friends Of Dean Martin(ez) were officially expelled from the Rat Pack, but theyþre always welcome on our hi-fi. Their easy-listening artistry and expertise in varied `50s and `60s instrumental styles is perfect for those hot late-summer barbecues, or great with a refreshing beverage any time of year. You may already be acquainted with the Friends-various members of Giant Sand and Naked Prey, along with Bill Elm, a former member of both groups, whose sparkling steel guitar stylings nearly steal the show. This Arizona comboþs metier is sultry Southwestern ballads for slow dancing and slow drinking ("Given The Time," "The Magical House Of Pies" and a leisurely version of "Misty"), but theyþre also masters of the cliches of twangy surf rock ("Chunder"), jet-set lounge organ ("Swamp Cooler"), Hawaiian luau music ("I Wish You Love"), jazz à la MJQ (cool vibes on Thelonious Monkþs "Ugly Beauty"), spaghetti Western ("All The Pretty Horses" ), Euro-exotica ("Per Sempre," featuring accordion, mandolin and violin) and tangy south-of-the-border spice ("El Tiradito" and the classic title cut). The authenticity of the Friendsþ sound is a testament to both their musical talents and their record collections.” (CMJ)
