Los Straightjackets The Velvet Touch Of... 1999
The sound of the Fender guitar needs no further advertisement, but if it did, any Los Straightjackets CDs would do just fine.
This, their third, is an excellent example of their skills, and it includes the amazing cover of My Heart Will Go On. You gotta hear it to believe it. The originals are every bit as good.
They've made ten-twelve other CDs since this one, and I've heard some of them. Avoid anything with singers, the band just doesn't need them. The live Damas Y Caballeros! from 2001 is also excellent, and they are a smokin' hot live band, crazy Mexican wrestler masks and everything.
