Los Chijuas (1969)

This is by request (not my rip, I found it somewhere in cyberspace). Los Chijuas were from Chihuahua/Mexico and made as far as I know five albums between 1968 and 1972. Their second album, which is represented here, is a mix of covers, garage and psych. The problem is that they have a couple of great songs ("Changing The Colors Of Time" and "The Sun Is Going Black" on their first album) but the rest of the material is rather weak. "My little red bean" and "My little house" are the stand-out tracks here.

Tracklist:
- Ob-la-di, Ob-la-da
- Muchachita
- My Little Red Bean
- Bang Shang A Long
- Drinking Teardrops
- My Little House
- En Su Barrio
- Chewy, Chewy
- What Is The Color Of God's Skin
- Nature's Lover
- Oyeme
- Doing Our Thing

Jose Ganem (gtr, vcls)
