Biography

Three Souls in My Mind was originally composed of Alejandro Lora on bass and lead vocals, Ernesto de Leon on lead guitar, and Carlos Hauptvogel on the drums. On some albums they are accompanied by Arturo Labastida on saxophone and Carlos Martinez on trumpet. Sergio Mancera also played guitar on some albums. They released 15 albums on the RAFF record label before officially changing their name and lineup in 1985.

Three Souls was part of a burgeoning Mexican rock movement that had ties to rock’s African American roots, the U.S. counterculture, and the then-globalizing recording industry. As rock in Mexico was originally seen as “inauthentic” when sung in Spanish, Three Souls mostly sang covers of American rock and blues songs in English. However, at the Festival de Avándaro, often called “Mexico’s Woodstock”, they crossed over, singing first in English, then in Spanish. From then on they recorded primarily in Spanish, writing most of their own songs. When asked why they switched to Spanish, Lora replied that it was important for the audience to understand the messages of the songs. While Three Souls had a popular following among the younger generation while singing in English, changing attitudes toward rock pushed the band to perform in the “hoyos fonquis”, where the lower classes held semi-chaotic rock shows.

    Three Souls sin duda son unos maestrazos, pero Alex Lora siempre fue una mierda, el necesitaba de la ayuda de músicos verdaderamente chingones como Ernesto de León y Charlie Hauptvoguel para que no sonara tan mal...

    Escuchando el album Adicto al rock'n'roll, que salio con la referencia a Three Souls Boggie, alli esta He pensado mucho, que temon! Three Souls nunca llego comercialmente al Peru pero ahora su musica suena genial, en perspectiva este album puede considerarse un clasico en cualquier lado de America
