Mavericks Play The HitsFormed in Miami, Florida, The Mavericks are celebrating their 30th anniversary of making music this year. And as you may’ve expected, this isn’t an album of their hits – but other peoples’.

Known for meshing their good-time country, Tex-Mex, Latino, rock’n’roll sound with accordion, horns and Latin rhythms, boy do they play it well. Add to that one of the best voices there is: Raul Malo is the Latino Roy Orbison. What a combo!

Giving some of their favourite songs that Mavericks treatment – from hip-swingers to tear-jerking heartbreakers – they interpret hits from Elvis, Bruce Springsteen, Waylon Jennings, and Patsy Cline, making them ’11 Golden Greats’.

Play The Hits by The Mavericks is out now via Cooking Vinyl.
