The Best of Los Lobos: Wolf Tracks
First single-disc los lobos collection, available february 14, includes a previously unreleased song
Los angeles - los lobos embody east l.a.'s cultural diversity with an ever-changing mix of traditional mexican music, tex-mex, and roots rock.
Wolf tracks: the best of los lobos contains more than an hour of wildly eclectic music by david hidalgo on vocals/guitar/accordion, conrad lozano on bass/vocals, louie pÃƒÂ©rez on drums/guitar, cesar rosas on guitar/bajo sexto/vocals, and steve berlin on saxophone/keyboards. The album features 20 of the band's most beloved songs spanning nearly two decades and includes the previously unreleased track, "border town girl," recorded during the sessions for the neighborhood.
Arranged chronologically, the collection kicks off with "let's say goodnight" and "anselma," a pair of tracks from the band's 1983 ep ...and a time to dance. Wolf tracks features five selections from los lobos' first full-length album how will the wolf survive? Including the title-track, "don't worry baby," "a matter of time," "corrido #1," and "evangeline." cited as one of the best albums of 1984.
Three years later, los lobos found mainstream success to match their critical acclaim on the soundtrack to la bamba. The title track to the ritchie valens biopic became a #1 hit for los lobos, and its follow-up single, "come on, let's go" made the top 40. The band also reached out to new audiences in 1987 with the moody by the light of the moon, represented here by "one time one night," "set me free (rosa lee)," and "shakin' shakin' shakes." also included on wolf tracks: the best of los lobos is a live version of the mexican classic "volver volver" recorded in 1987.
