Tommy Mack & the Lifters

Rolas Para Gringos

For you nonfluents, Rolas Para Gringos means "music for white people." The Lifters' latest is a supercharged rock set accented with organs, warm distortion, and cameos from talents like Bobby Rock of Honky. You can tell Lifters' tunes are good by the way they hold up next to classic country covers like "Your Cheating Heart" and "The Race Is On," with its astonishing guitar lead, and the Lloyd Price version of "Stagger Lee." Gringos' best quality is how natural it sounds – like Mack and company didn't even break a sweat. ***
