Listen Up (Album Review): Hacienda Brothers (???) The Haciendas - California country singer Chris Gaffney and Dave Gonzalez of the roots-rock Paladins - locate the shared border of old-school country and R&B. Songwriting great Dan Penn (Do Right Woman, I'm Your Puppet) produces the album, adding touches of trucker twang and Memphis horns. The Haciendas bolster their originals with covers of Mel Tillis and Dallas Frazier, and Gaffney's haunting rendition of Fred Neil's I've Got a Secret walks the dark end of the street indeed.
