Ray Benson’s new Solo CD titled “A Little Piece” is now available thru iTunes for download! The CD features a track that showcases Mark & Rick Del Castillo’s guitar playing!! Click the link above to go to iTunes and download it! Here’s what Ray said about working with Mark & Rick to American Songwriter Magazine:
American Songwriter: “Who are those guys on “Heartache and Pain?” I never heard guitar (like that) – it’s not quite flamenco.”
Ray Benson: “Oh yeah, they’re called the Del Castillo Brothers. It’s flamenco rock. It’s just these two guys, they’re in town. I produced a record of them and Willie Nelson doing “I Never Cared For You.” I had written a song that was very angry, flamenco, and I just started playing it. I play the intro lick you know and I could’ve played, but I went, no man, they’re good friends of mine and this is just right up their alley. Yeah, Mark and Rick, the Del Castillo Brothers, they have a band called Del Castillo and that’s what they do.”
