This release is a collection of B-sides, outtakes, and live recordings
even featuring outgoing phone messages from Robert Lopez a.k.a. El Vez's office headquarters. As with other works by El Vez, SON OF...A LAD FROM SPAIN? quotes liberally from nearly 40 years of popular music that precedes it. Besides the musical references to Elvis Presley, there are also nods to David Bowie, James Brown, Santana, and plenty more. None of these icons is evoked for nostalgia's sake, but rather as a series of vivid touchstones in popular culture.It's rare for social commentary to rub shoulders so comfortably with humor without lapsing into either schtick or cabaret. El Vez pulls it off with grace and aplomb, helped by the fact that his band are all talented players, capable of both evoking other bands and stamping their individual mark on the material.
