Rolling Stone 100 Best Albums of the Eighties - Rated 30/100!
180 Gram Vinyl! A Pop Staple of Legendary Proportions! Latin American Musical Heroes!
Since the 1978 release of Los Lobos' debut album, Just Another Band from East L.A., they've repeatedly disproven that title. Los Lobos isn't "just another" anything, but rather a band that has consistently evolved artistcally while never losing sight of their humble roots.
Produced by T-Bone Burnett, the major breakthrough of Los Lobos' How Will The Wolf Survive? was a launching pad for the tried & true sound of these Latin American musical heroes.
Honing their craft in '70s L.A. by doing loads of weddings and dance gigs, they incorporated Rock into their Mexican sound which resulted in a Pop staple of legendary proportions. The band switch easily between Rockers like "Don't Worry Baby" and "A Matter Of Time" and modern Mexican evergreens "Corrida #1" and "Serenata Norteña".
"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." - Rolling Stone
