Los Super Seven's third album is named after the ZZ Top anthem, which paid homage to Mexican border radio's "country Jesus-hillbilly-blues" of the 1960s. Stations like XERF that blasted a 250,000-watt signal across the Rio Grande were music to the ears of many. This reviewer definitely heard that call back in the day, as did most of the players on the latest album from Los Super Seven. "Heard It on the X" is a loving tribute, delivered by an array of talent that includes Rick Trevino, Flaco Jimenez, Delbert McClinton, Lyle Lovett, Raul Malo, Rodney Crowell, the West Side Horns and Ruben Ramos. This record is a parade of killer tunes that resurrect the inspiring and subversively educational "no-format" format of border radio. From the doo-wop sentiment of "Talk to Me" to the Buddy Holly-era Lubbock vibe of "Let Her Dance" to the sultry cover of the title track, "Heard It on the X" bristles with outlaw energy.—PVV
