Spin On Black present an expanded reissue of Orquesta Del Desierto's second release, Dos, originally released in 2003. This reissue features the songs "Rope" and "Reaching Out" which were never released in Europe and "El Diablo Un Patrono", unreleased in the United States. For those who are new to the band, prepare to hear the romance of the desert as you have never heard it before. Dos features a wider variety of arrangements that include compositions from Mark Engel and Mike Riley which created dynamic nuances in the texture of the material, songs began to take on the shape of a group that was maturing into something spectacular. Updated by Harper Hug at Thunder Underground in Palm Springs, California, this new reissue offers enhanced fidelity features not available to the band. By the time Orquesta Del Desierto convened at Rancho de la Luna in Joshua Tree to record their second, and what would turn out to be their last album, Dos, the line-up from the first album had significantly changed. The core performers, Pete Stahl, Dandy Brown, Mario Lalli, Mark Engel and Mike Riley remained in place, but gone were drummer Alfredo Hernández, percussionist Sean Landetta Carrillo, and the original San Jacinto horn section. It had been a year since the critical success of their self-titled freshman release and during that time, Brown began collaborations with the performers and writers who would appear on the second album. Added to the group were drummers Adam Maples and Pete Davidson, Tim Jones on piano, Emiliano Hernandez on baritone sax, and the lone San Jacinto trumpet of Bill Barrett. After extensive touring and the critical acclaim of Dos, Orquesta Del Desierto disbanded in 2006. What the band accomplished in their brief two-album stay has left an impressive mark on the concept of "desert rock". In the sea of drop-tuned, fuzzed-out guitars that created the image of the "desert rock" scene, Orquesta Del Desierto left behind two collections that show a dimension of the Mojave beyond urgency of volume and distortion. Founded upon music inspired and written by producer Dandy Brown (Hermano), members of the band include or have included vocalist Pete Stahl (Scream, Goatsnake, Wool), drummer Alfredo Hernández (Kyuss, Queens Of The Stone Age, Ché), guitarist Mario Lalli (Fatso Jetson, Yawning Man) and guitarists Mike Riley and Mark Engel. 180 gram vinyl; Gatefold sleeve; Edition of 500.
