Los Lobos Biography
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.
After releasing an independent EP in the late '70s and an EP in 1983,
Los Lobos delivered their first major-label album, How Will the Wolf
Survive?, in 1984; it received an enormous amount of critical acclaim,
as well as a dedicated following of fans. In the next four years, they
released a marginally successful attempt to make their wildly eclectic
sound palatable for a pop audience (By the Light of the Moon), a
soundtrack of old Ritchie Valens songs that was a hit (La Bamba), and
an album of traditional Mexican music (La Pistola y el Corazón). The
band took two years off and returned with The Neighborhood in 1990; the
album was a varied and powerful rock & roll record that was better
than anything they had released in six years. Kiko, released in 1992,
brought the band into more experimental territory, without ever
abandoning their graceful songwriting.
The band celebrated their 20-year anniversary with Just Another Band
from East L.A., a modestly titled two-CD set that featured most of
their biggest singles and recognized songs. It also had rare tracks
from their first album, outtakes, and live tracks that fans had been
waiting for. They didn't appear together on record again until 1995,
when they released the children's record Papa's Dream on Music for
Little People Records. They also scored the film Desperado and
contributed tracks to several other soundtracks and tribute albums.
Their last release for Warner Bros. came in the form of 1996's Colossal
Head, another critically acclaimed album that still failed to excite
the label enough to keep them on the roster. Feeling dejected, they
left one another to concentrate on side projects, like Soul Disguise,
Houndog, and the Latin Playboys. The latter was the most dedicated
project of the bunch, eventually becoming another regular group for
David Hidalgo and Louie Pérez, on top of their duties for Los Lobos,
after previously releasing an album in the early '90s.
Los Lobos came back together in 1999, when they recorded and released
their first record for Hollywood Records, This Time. Another Los
Angeles-themed gem from the group, it didn't perform up to the label's
liking and they only managed to deliver one more record for the
company, the re-release of 1977's Del Este de Los Angeles. Rhino/Warner
Archives released the Cancionero: Mas y Mas box set the following year,
but despite the career retrospective, they were still together and came
back on Mammoth Records for the Good Morning Aztlan release in 2002.
Two years later, artists such as Elvis Costello, Tom Waits, Richard
Thompson, and Mavis Staples joined Los Lobos for The Ride.
In 2004, as Los Lobos celebrated 30 years in the music business, they
recorded a pair of sold-out shows in San Francisco, which became the
basis for a live album and DVD, Live at the Fillmore, remarkably the
veteran group's first live set. Wolf Tracks: The Best of Los Lobos,
the first successful attempt at a concise overview of the band's
weighty catalog arrived in 2006, along with the loosely conceptual new
release The Town and the City, which ranks up there with the best of
the band's three decades of material. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All
