CD Review: The Mavericks Return To Perform "All Night Live"

The Mavericks have made a successful career combining elements of country with a Latin flair and rockabilly energy. After an eight-year hiatus, The Mavericks have returned with their own record label, Mono Mundo Recordings and their first release on the label is "All Night Live, Volume 1." It is the band's first live release in a dozen years and showcases why The Mavericks have been named one of the best live band around.

Their new sixteen-song release begins with the Latin swinging sing-along of "All Night Long," before picking up the tempo for the fun, ska-like feel of "All Over Again." Their rockabilly roots come shining through on the classic sound of "Stories We Could Tell" and they keep the energy going with "What You Do To Me" as The Mavericks sound fresh and renewed in this live setting. They deliver the blues with "Do You Want Me To," before blowing you away with the exceptional horns of "As Long As There's Lovin' Tonight." They slow down for the emotional country ballad "Pardon Me" and also feature an amazing cover of Neil Young's "Harvest Moon." The album wraps up with the Latin boogie shuffle of "Dance In The Moonlight," the seven-minute, Tex-Mex guitar driven "Come Unto Me" and the exciting, quick-pace of "Waiting For The World To End."

The Mavericks are currently on tour through December. For a complete list of shows and to find out more about their new live album "All Night Live, Volume 1," please visit themavericksband.com
