Review from Buzz Magasine's Dave Reid:


David Reid

Like The Beatles, The Amigos are far from experiencing second album difficulties. Unlike the Beatles, they can really play - (joke). Perhaps slightly more laid back than the first, Alma Gitana holds its fire more subtly; although these lads can let rip to the point where you'd think violinist Billy Thompson is in danger of spontaneous combustion (Track 6 for example).

Is it folk? Jazz? The Amigos set audiences alight at both types of venue. Nothing like them is happening in Wales. Check it out! And buy the first album as well.
