Los Lobos

Los Lobos were one of America's most distinctive and original bands of the '80s. They may have had a hit with ‘La Bamba’ in 1987, yet that cover barely scratches the surface of their talents. Los Lobos are eclectic in the best sense of the word. While they draw equally from rock, Tex-Mex, country, folk, R&B, blues, and traditional Spanish and Mexican music, their music never sounds forced or self-conscious. Instead, all of their influences become one graceful, gritty sound. From their very first recordings, their rich musicality was apparent; on nearly every subsequent record, they have found ways to redefine and expand their sound, without ever straying from the musical traditions that form the heart and soul of the band. ~ Allmusic: Los Lobos ~ retrieved October 4, 2013 © Allmusic

Los Lobos ~ How Will The Wolf Survive (1984) ~ #30 Rolling Stone 100 Best Albums Of The Eighties in 1990 ~ They adroitly mixed blues rave-ups like Don't Worry Baby with traditional numbers such as Serenata Nortena and personal songs by Perez and Hidalgo about the band's quest to retain its Mexican American heritage while working within a glossy pop-star industry. ~ 1990 © Rolling Stone
