Los Lobos, which is Spanish for “The Wolves,” is an American rock band from East Los Angeles, CA. Their music is influenced by rock n’ roll, Tex-Mex, folk, country, zydeco, R&B, blues, soul and traditional music such as cumbia, boleros and norteños. The band rose to fame in 1987, when their version of Ritchie Valens’ “La Bamba” topped the charts in the U.S. and U.K. and several other countries. Vocalist and guitarist David Hidalgo and drummer Louie Pérez met at Garfield High School in East LA and bonded over their mutual admiration for bands such as Ry Cooder, Randy Newman and Fairport Convention. They enlisted fellow students Frank González, Cesar Rosas and Conrad Lozano to complete the group's lineup, in 1973 Their first album, Los Lobos del Este de Los Angeles was recorded at two studios in Hollywood in 1977. The band members were unsatisfied with playing only American Top 40 songs and experimented with traditional Mexican music. This style received a positive reaction from audiences, leading the band to switch genres and perform at hundreds of weddings and dances between 1974 and 1980. Their first noteworthy public appearance was in 1980 at the Olympic Auditorium in LA when they opened for Public Image Limited. In 1983 they released an EP, “And A Time To Dance,” which garnered interest from Slash/Warner Brothers Records. The label was not confident enough in the band to release a 10-track full length, so the band issued a 7 song LP. 7 months after the release the group won a Grammy for Best Mexican American song in 1984 and sales helped them buy a van and do additional touring. In the summer of ’84 they issued their first major label album, “How Will The Wolf Survive?” The band was exposed to Rock N Roll audiences when they opened for The Clash and later for the LA band the Blasters, with influences in rhythm and blues and rockabilly. The film Colors includes “One Time, One Night” in the opening credits but not on the soundtrack. In 1987 they released their second album, “By The Light Of the Moon” and in the same year recorded Ritchie Valens covers for the film La Bamba, including the title track which became a number one hits as well as “Come On Let’s Go” and “Donna” which also charted. In 1988 they followed with another album “ La pistola y el corazón” featuring original and traditional Mexican songs and although it failed to chart, it earned the band their 2nd Grammy for Best Mexican American Album in 1990. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, the band toured extensively throughout the world, opening for acts such as Bob Dylan, U2 and the Grateful Dead. “Kiko” is their sixth album. With the exception of “La Bamba’s 2 million units sold, “Kiko” sold more full-length units than any other album in their 46 year career of original songs. Songs by Los Lobos have been recorded by Elvis Costello, Waylon Jennings, and Robert Plant. In 2015 they were nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. In 2018 they were inducted into the Austin City Limits Hall Of Fame. In 2011 they were awarded the Latin Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. In 2013 they toured Europe supporting Neil Young and Crazy Horse. In 2021 they released their 18th album, “Native Sons” which helped win them their fourth Grammy Award for Best Americana album in 2022.Track ListingSide ATrack Title1 Dream In BlueTrack Duration3:34Track Title2 Wake Up DoloresTrack Duration2:55Track Title3 Angels with Dirty FacesTrack Duration4:02Track Title4 That Train Don’t Stop HereTrack Duration3:53Side BTrack Title1 Kiko And The Lavender MoonTrack Duration3:36Track Title2 Saint Behind The GlassTrack Duration3:17Track Title3 Reva’s HouseTrack Duration3:05Track Title4 When The Circus ComesTrack Duration3:16Side CTrack Title1 Arizona SkiesTrack Duration2:45Track Title2 Short Side Of NothingTrack Duration2:57Track Title3 Two JanesTrack Duration3:53Track Title4 Wicked RainTrack Duration3:05Side DTrack Title1 Whiskey TrailTrack Duration2:41Track Title2 Just A ManTrack Duration2:39Track Title3 PeaceTrack Duration3:56Track Title4 Rio De TenampaTrack Duration1:59
