With a name like Tortilla Factory, it's no surprise this band emerged from the Chicano scene of 1970s Texas. Despite releasing several albums throughout the decade, the band's music remains frustratingly difficult to locate in the vinyl format. Step forward Fryer's Athens of the North label who come through with a fine 7" of their material primed for the floor. "Cookin'" is nuthin' but a fine, sleek funk track with all the trimming - horns, slap-bass, organs, you name it! "Cokin' & Tokin'", on the other hand, is a funner, more uplifting, and an absolute pleasure to move your hips to. Funky doesn't even cover it..!
