She was.  Hot as hell...  Wasn't she a beauty queen?

Hot, and regular...

totally agree man! Both are on good rotation on my Iphone -- in fact, I think I heard them both on RP for the first time!

IF BRANDO was directing his brilliant epic Western "One-Eyed Jacks" today, he'd want THIS to be the soundtrack — apropos title, too!

Bill has 41 tracks by Calexico or Calexico collaboration on RP. Not the largest collection but significant.

Quite superb. Melodic, dynamic, uplifting, dramatic. Altogether pretty near peerless.

Hawaii Five-O had one of the all-time great theme songs. One of those shows that, even if you didn't like it, you had to watch until the theme was over. Someone should upload it.

I wonder if any bands like Shadowy Men or Man of the Atom have covered it? Seems like a natural for either band.

Yea, this is a good'n!


Play this forever.
My only gripe about Calexico is that they achieved international notariety so fast, we didn't have very long at all to enjoy them as a local act in Tucson.   Bravo, boys, but It really was kind of frustrating.  There was a brief period when one could see a glimmer of hope that Tucson could develop a music scene, and *poof* it ended.
They play this song too much......
God, I really love this band. Saw them live a few times now  - they must be touring all the time, or they wouldn't be in Austria (of all paces) every year or two - and they're just all-around good. Great rapport with the audience, great music, and none of the rockstar attitude. If I were in a band, this is how I'd like to perform. They're officially on my "hero" list ;-)

Bill - Nice segue from Fleetwood Mac's Tusk.
Their new album is getting some great reviews, and I agree it is amazing - but for me, Feast of Wire is their very best.

I'm with you!

I have enjoyed listening to Calexico and even have bought some of their music. I also love it when they get together with Iron and Wine. Thanks Wild Bill for another musical turn-on.
So much better than the preceding FM excuse.

I'm not sure about that, but I'm sure that every crappy high school band in the 70's sure did.

This is truely one of the most diverse, musically
I think you have all said what I feel about this group and their music. Living here in England they are a breath of fresh air.Thanks RP for introducing my ears to them and thanks for playing this track again. :dancingbanana_2: :bananajam:
What a cool song.
yay! :bounce:
WooHoo Something (finally) for Cinco De Mayo!

For the Calexico fans, I've heard enough of these guys and have decided to start buying their music. Any suggestions on where to start? I caught a performance on Austin City Limits and thought they were amazing live, do they have any live CD's? Thanks!
They are amazing live, have seen them twice! They have a live DVD (called "worlds drift in" i think? but have never seen it) Either way check out this album, it's awesome

they really are great live. I saw them in Utrecht with iron & wine and it was well worth it.

Greetings. I don't know much about Calexico. RP introduced me to them and I went straight out a bought 'Hot Rail'. Excellent album and I believe a good intro into their music, I will be buying more! I find the music quite Tarantinoesk, if you know what I mean.

I would suggest starting with the album from which this song is taken, Feast of wire. Easily their best album so far, in my opinion.

Reminds me of a modern version of Herb Albert and the TJ brass

Oo, this is nice. I like Calexico's instrumentals, but usually get annoyed when vocals kick in.
Califonia crap
Just to let you know---Calexico was great at Lollapalooza. :bananajam: :cowboy: :dance:
This is a great song, and it's making me smile.

Calexico

Yes! I love the tune, and was thinking of the good, bad & ugly. and here it is on the playlist (Cal. guitar trio). Hope there's whistling..
maybe there could be a weird music channel too. maybe there could be a high repetition classics channel too while we're at it!

This song appears in a western in which an outlaw is being pursued by a reluctant hero. It conveys a desperate, erratic flight on the part of the outlaw and a lengthy, relentless, determined pursuit on the part of the hunter, who remains "close behind" his prey, but can't quite catch up to him. Hence the title. Or if it doesn't, it should. :cowboy:
