Album Review

The obvious point of comparison for this tasty combination of R&B, Tex-Mex, conjunto, and rockabilly is Los Lobos. However, the New Orleans-based Iguanas draws on Louisiana swamp pop to establish their own identity. The music doesn't sound as wild and intense as you might hope, and the vocals could be more forceful and distinctive, but Nuevo Boogaloo does sound looser and more spontaneous than their debut album. From the sprightly "Oye Isabel" to the rockin' "My Girlfriend Is a Waitress" to the soulful "Hey, Sweet Darling," this is a very appealing recording.

Customer Reviews

Boom Boom Boom oh yeah!

This album is great...I've first heard it about 7 years ago when a friend had it and looked h#ll and high water to find it since it was a limited release, and now it is a prized CD of mine. It is a great for long drives and you can really shake your hips while cranking up Boom Boom Boom...a great with beer and pizza, sitting around with friends on a hot summer night. There are sultry undertones to the songs that a few and far between.

The Iguanas are amazing!!

It is great that iTunes got Nuevo Boogaloo and The Iguanas, their debut album. Among Iguanas fans, these two CDs have been so hard to find -- I have bought several used to give as gifts. If you get a chance to go see them, you won't be disappointed -- they still play the small venues and they are so much fun live. It's so hard to pick favorites, but Oye, Isabel, Angel, and Ven a Bailar are standards. I love Somebody Help Me and Hey, Sweet Darling. Queremos Boogaloo!!!
