Cruzados Live at The Roxy In L.A. KBFH

Here is a band I knew nothing about when I recorded this concert of the Cruzados from the King Biscuit Flower Hour 15 NOVEMBER 1987. Not sure when I put this on CDR and when it was taped. Probably 1988. These guys rock with some of the best power pop bands out there.

Give 'em a shot. If you like power pop, you should like this show.

The '80s rock band the Cruzados consisted of members Tito Larriva (lead vocals and guitar), Tony Marsico (bass and vocals), Steven Hufsteter (guitar), and Chalo Quintana (drums), and although they were often picked as "the next big thing" by both their musical peers and music critics, the group would remain together for only a pair of albums. During a brief four-year span, the Cruzados opened shows for the likes of Fleetwood Mac, INXS, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, as well as appearing at Farm Aid (singing "This Land is Your Land," with such renowned artists as Neil Young and Arlo Guthrie). The two albums that the quartet issued for the Arista label, 1985's self-titled debut and 1987's After Dark, received praise from the likes of Bob Dylan, John Fogerty, David Byrne, Brian Setzer, and Billy Joel, but a trip to superstardom wasn't in the cards for the group, as they split before a third album could be assembled. In 2001, a compilation titled Unreleased Early Recordings was issued via the Cruzados' website, including a song ("Rising Sun") that featured Bob Dylan on harmonica. ~ Greg Prato, All Music Guide

What This Is All About

I've been collecting live music from various sources since the mid to late 70's. Radio shows, TV broadcasts, radio show pre-FM CD's and vinyl LP's and some trades. Most of the shows posted here, I recorded and ripped myself. I always had top of the line stereo equipment and cassette and open reel recorders for those on air broadcasts.

I've downloaded plenty of bootlegged concerts from various blogs. As a rule I will only post stuff from my collection and not what is already available out there.

I also post out of print CDs and LPs from my collection.
I will repost from my readers anything someone sends me as long as it is either out of print or something that's not from someone else's blog. If you want to share a link for a cool item on your blog, or someone else's, please feel free to post it in the comments........

Enjoy and please leave a comment and pass this blog along.

Can you believe that so many out there are starving for the old WHFS? Amazing!

If you leave a comment, how about using a nickname instead of Anonymous. At least make up something please. Thanks!

I have reconsidered my position...and will re-upload dead links, so long as you go to that particular post and make the request from the comments page...
