In the mid-70s, as the lead singer of legendary group El Chicano, Arvizu and the band came to be known as premier ambassadors of the East LA sound - an amalgam of rock, jazz, R&B, and Latin groove. "Friend For Life" is Arvizu's story strung into a dozen songs - sung both in Spanish and English - songs of love, despair, and survival. A recording that's both intimately personal and dance floor approachable. Produced by Ry Cooder (Buena Vista Social Club, Chavez Ravine, talking Timbuktu). RIYL: Buena Vista Social Club, Santana, War.
