Born To Be Blue-The Mavericks (Valory)

This is probably the most admired band that’s never had a Top 10 single (three Top 10 albums, though). They were together 14 years, broke up in ’03, got back together last year and with Raul Malo’s soaring vocals and tight playing they sound as good as ever. Maybe better with age, even. Their first new single in a decade is distinctive and classy.
