ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"First Things First", the excellent, long-out-of print, debut studio disc from bad-ass Dallas blues/rock axeripper Lance Lopez featuring 13 tracks (75 minutes) of classic, retro- 70’s, bluesy, funky, heavy guitar power trio riffage that will rock your blues away. Excellently produced by Jay Newland and Buddy Miles, this is the disc that should have put Lance Lopez on the map. This outstanding Grooveyard Records re-issue disc features 5 “unreleased” Bonus Tracks including 4 extended killer Live jams recorded at “Burgstargard Castle” in Germany (where L.L. takes his guitar rite over the edge), plus there is a way-kool, stripped-down “back @ the shack” solo acoustic blues workout of Junior Kimbrough’s “Sad Days and Lonely Nights” to wind down the “First Things First” disc in fine funky fashion. Get ready to rock the blues hard with L.L., people...”First Things First” has landed.

Lance Lopez is a true, legitimate blues/rock heavy guitar hero. The REAL deal. If L.L. had landed in 1975, his name would be right up there with the Top Three: (Hendrix, Trower and Frank Marino). That is a bold statement in the world of Guitar Rock, but it’s the damn truth. One listen and you’ll be a true believer. Armed with his trademark, hard-assed, funky heavy guitar riffage and outstanding soul-powered vox, L.L. makes his point on “First Things First” and is here to stay.

The Lance Lopez: "First Things First" is an essential slice of classic, bluesy/funky, heavy guitar rock that is HIGHLY recommended to fans of HENDRIX (long live the musical spirit of JIMI), FRANK MARINO, ROBIN TROWER, ERIC GALES, KING'S X, S.R.V., DOYLE BRAMHALL, EDDIE HAZEL, LENNY KRAVITZ (imagine Lenny Kravitz meets Hendrix!!!), STEVIE SALAS, RICHIE KOTZEN, JOE BONAMASSA, (early vintage) ZZ TOP, INDIGENOUS, CRAIG ERICKSON, BUDDAHEADS, SKY HIGH & CLAS YNGSTROM, WES JEANS, KAMCHATKA and just about any other killer get-down rippin' blues/rock axeslingers you have ever heard. Fans of his four previous killer Grooveyard discs: “Wall of Soul”, “Simplify Your Vision”, “Higher Ground” & “Live” will “get off hard” on the awesome “First Things First” disc. Tune in and discover the awesome, funky, blues/rock power of Lance Lopez.
