Artist Biography
There are at least two bands called Bandolero: 1) A Puerto Rico outfit whose album, an amalgam of psychedelia, garage, blues and rock, is well worth investigation. Most of its better moments come on Side One. All vocals are in English except for one cut, Tenura. The album's opener I Got It is quite fast-paced with prominent guitar and keyboards. Love Me Tonight, one of the strongest, is notable for good vocals and pleasing melodic guitar work. Don't Hang Me features lots of heavyish guitar work, but is a little disjointed in places. I Can Always Think Of You, another of the best cuts, features more good guitar work and some quite dramatic piano parts. The side closes with Salsa Friquea. This commences with a climatic keyboard intro, which gives way to bouncy Latin American style rhythms as the song progresses through different stages. Side Two is not as strong. It opens with Together, which blends lots of guitar / organ interplay. My Life Is Always Going Through Changes applies a similar format, but is a little disjointed in places. I Want To Get There is more of the same, but weaker. Awake features bouncy Latin rhythms and is similar to Salsa Friquea, but becomes tedious in places. The finale Truth And Understanding is another of the album's finer moments. It blends good vocals and melody and there's a pleasing guitar interlude followed by a rhythmic Latin section. The cut ends with a drum solo. 2) A french disco band of brothers José and Carlos Perron together with Djill Bourezak. They had a major hit with the song «Paris Latino» in 1983/1984 in France, Spain, Switzerland and Italy. The next track «Cocoloco» in 1984 could not follow the success. In 2011 a Best-of-CD was released including the 12''-version and special mixes of «Paris Latino». In the US and Canada «Paris Latino» was released as 12'' vinyl including a remix by John Jellybean Benitez.
