Coco Montoya - I Want It All Back was produced by Keb' Mo' and Jeff Paris and released on the Ruf Records label. Known for his exemplary guitar work, Coco shows off his vocal talents, or as he puts it "it's healthy to take chances." Backed by an exceptional group of musicians and with Keb' Mo' and Jeff Paris directing Coco's soulful vocals, I Want It All Back is a compilation of blues melded with  rhythm and blues, rock n' roll, pop, funk, and soul to create a series of close knit but diverse songs with alluring melodies and arrangements.   

The release opens with the lively track Hey Senorita, which introduces us to the new Coco Montoya, vocalist, but also carries the powerful guitar licks we have come to expect. The title track I Want It All Back is a beautiful rhythm and blues track with exceptional harmonies complementing the soulful vocals. The track Forever is a down and dirty blues track that brings out the raw elements of Coco's guitar work and showcases more refined and paced vocals. 

Cry Lonely is a rollicking track that lashes out with slicing guitar licks that emphasize the passionate lyrics "When the rain runs down your window, and you can't hold back your tears. When you are so afraid to be alone, you know I will always be right here." Changing the pace to a pop and soul rhythm on As Close As I Have Come,  Coco poignantly sings "there was comfort in your touch, sweet contentment in your smile, and the light in your eyes out shined the sun....If that wasn't love that is as close as I come." 

Staying with a pop and rock n' roll sound, The Life of My Broken Heart, the vocals power through this catchy and affectionate track. Another emotionally driven track is The One Who Really Loves You with the band creating the ambience for Coco's lyrics. The track Fannie Mae takes us back to the blues and drives the point home with a soulful harmonica (Rod Piazza), organ (Jeff Paris), and those distinct blues guitar chords from Coco. 

The release also includes Don't Go Makin' Plans a funky blues and rhythm and blues sound that shows Coco's diverse vocal prowess; She's Gonna Need Somebody is another funky blues rock track that rolls with a playful melody and lyrics "reality ain't what it seems, ...., it's just a matter of time,....too many lonely days and lonely nights, she's gonna need somebody to hold her tight, somebody who knows his stuff..."; and Coco ushers us out with a beautiful rendering of the Jackson Brown classic Somebody's Baby.
