The Grammy-winning pan-Latin project known as Los Super Seven reconvened for their third album, Heard It on Border Radio, which was co-produced by Rick Clark (Mix's Nashville editor), Charlie Sexton and Dan Goodman and engineered by Dave McNair. Regulars such as Rick Trevino and Rubén Ramos performed alongside Tuscon, Ariz. — based band Calexico and new and returning guests such as Freddy Fender, Texas Tornadoes Flaco Jimenez and Augie Meyers, Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown and Joe Ely at Two Coves, an exclusive studio just outside of Austin, Texas, with a scenic view of the Colorado River, and outfitted with a Neve console, Pro Tools|HD and a “ridiculous amount of vintage gear to die for,” according to Clark. McNair finished overdubs with Steve Earle, Delbert McClinton and Raul Malo and mixed at Ocean Way Nashville. “We've got everything from blues to Texas swing to straight-up rock 'n' roll to mariachi and even some pretty intense jazz horn-blowing,” Clark enthuses, “all celebrating the spirit of border radio.” Pictured clockwise from top left: Charlie Sexton (L), Jake Oddo and Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown (R); Calexico's Paul Niehaus; “Spot” of West Side Horns; and Sexton, Jim Vollentine, Olivia Trevino and Dave McNair
