We all have music in our hearts that in many ways define us. There are songs and musicians that we have heard throughout our lives that we - for whatever reason - actually treasure. For me, "Pablo Cruise" is just such a group.
Recalling those fun and exciting times of my youth (and young adulthood) - these guys where often playing the background music of my life; bringing an energy and up-beat mood to my existence that will never be forgotten.
In a moment of "where are they now" curiosity I decided to ask the all seeing AltaVista and discovered PabloCruise.com. I am glad I paid them a visit. These guys have generously provided imbedding code for the media player below, offering a really nice assortment of tunes. Several are the original recordings along with the same songs presented as live recordings from their "It's Good to be Live" CD and yep, they still got it!
Share and Enjoy!
Groove Now to Pablo Cruise

In 1975 Pablo Cruise released its first A&M album simply entitled Pablo Cruise. The album cover was shot in the tropical gardens of San Francisco's Golden Gate Park and it featured a huge gorilla standing front and center. The band, David Jenkins (guitars & vocals), Cory Lerios (keyboards & vocals), Steve Price (drums) & Bud Cockrell (bass & vocals) was nowhere in sight. At that point there was a bit of a mystique as to who Pablo Cruise really was. When asked, "who's Pablo," the band, which is a quartet, would answer, "he's the guy in the middle." When asked what Pablo Cruise meant, the well-rehearsed answer went something like this,"Pablo,represents an honest, real, down to earth individual; and Cruise, depicts his fun loving, easy going attitude towards life." In essence that's what Pablo Cruise's music is all about. Honest, real, down to earth vocals, accompanied by fun yet elegant, infectious grooves. To hear Pablo Cruise on record is one thing, but to experience the band live is an exhilarating event.
