Album · 2012 · 16 Songs. Por Vida Live Alejandro Escovedo.
Alejandro Escovedo has been making memorable music of one kind or another since the mid-'70s, but it wasn't until he released his first solo album in 1992, Gravity, that he began to reveal the full extent of his gifts as a songwriter. A lyricist with a remarkable ability to find subtle beauties and difficult truths in the stuff of everyday lives, Escovedo also has a superb ear for a melody, whether he is writing for a small acoustic group or a roaring full-on rock band, and Gravity was nothing short of a revelation, with his subsequent albums only confirming Escovedo's talent. Given the almost dizzying variety of artists and styles encompassed on Por Vida, what's most remarkable about the album is how consistent it is; the quality of these songs is a given, but the performances are strong and emphatic from front to back, as if the musicians wanted to be sure that they gave the songs the interpretations they deserved.
This is a brilliant tribute CD to a true artist, Alejandro Escovedo.

One prays Alejandro Escovedo heals quickly. If nothing else, Austin's rock & roll Garcia Lorca – poet, dramatist – owes all those he's touched a follow-up to 2001's A Man Under the Influence, his indie breakthrough. Don't be fooled by the label imprint either, found titling one of Escovedo's other Bloodshot Records ripostes, More Miles Than Money: Live 1994-96.
