    The bio hardly gives Malo credit. I loved their self-titled first album. Despite the obvious Santana comparisons and connection Malo still managed to be unique and deserves a lot more respect. True, Santana made Latino-Rock mainstream but there were great groups out at that time like Malo, El Chicano and Azteca. But the introduction of Latin open doors to other groups from other cultures, Osibisa and Mandrill, even the American groups War and Redbone had various infuences from Latin and African mixed with R&B and Jazz. Simply put, that era was a great time for all music and we were fortunate to get a taste of the World!

    I've been waiting for Dos to be reissued, but it's beginning to look as though it's been forgotten. I suppose I'll have to try converting my vinyl copy.
