It’s a bold move to be a veteran band with a two decades-long reputation of being a helluva live band to release a live album of strictly new songs, but Raul Malo’s long-running band The Mavericks has done just that.

That this new band would soon face the same fate is frustrating, but the story of How We Live does have a happy ending–and a rare third chance for success in an industry that is resistant to giving anyone a second chance. That their sole album Dry Land happens to be one of the finest lost jewels of the Eighties only makes this story even more (bitter)sweet.
Taken from the Universal reissue, Guitar Town (Thirtieth Anniversary Deluxe Edition).
