First full mainstream UK album release for guitarist and songwriter, known primarily for his work with raucous country/rock band The Nuns. Street Songs Of Love is produced by the legendary Tony Visconti, and features guest vocals from Bruce Springsteen and Ian Hunter.

A father aches for his sons struggle to find lifes meaning in Down In The Bowery, perhaps the albums beating heart on which Ian Hunter contributes full-throated vocals. Bruce Springsteen and Alejandro trade lines around a nasty guitar riff on Faith, a tightly woven rocker that bores in and never lets go. The lead track Anchor explodes out of the speakers, a statement of purpose about that treacherous thing called love', which recalls the best of The Band, Tom Petty and Rolling Stones.

A band record,' as Escovedo puts it, Street Songs of Love is performed by Alejandro Escovedo and The Sensitive Boys: David Pulkingham on guitars, keyboards, vocals; Bobby Daniel on bass and vocals; and Hector Munoz, drums and vocals. Karla Manzu and Nakia Reynoso contribute essential background vocals throughout the album.
