Los Lobos were already East L.A. neighborhood legends, Sunset Strip regulars and a Grammy Award winning band (Best Mexican-American/Tejano Music Performance) by the time they recorded their major label debut How Will The Wolf Survive? in 1984.
Although the album’s name and title song were inspired by a National Geographic article about real life wolves in the wild, the ... Read more in Amazon's Los Lobos Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The Los Lobos fan might reasonably ask what--besides length and a wonderful accompanying booklet--Más y Más has over 1993's two-CD Just Another Band from East L.A.. The answer is longwinded: here are album tracks (anywhere from four to eight from each studio album), outtakes, demos, and live cuts, as well as selections from tribute albums, soundtracks, and side projects. Some highlights that weren't on the earlier collection include a 1983 rockabilly sizzler, "We're Gonna Rock," the similarly charged "Rip It Up" (an '87 outtake from La Bamba), Richard Thompson's "Down Where the Drunkards Roll" (from the '94 tribute Beat the Retreat), a live take on the Beatles' "Tomorrow Never Knows" (from a '93 television tribute), "Route 90" (from the pristine Lobos children's collection, Papa's Dream), and a '97 live version of Marvin Gaye's "What's Goin' On" with Sheryl Crow guesting on vocals. This doesn't even take into account the songs from six soundtracks and a personal fave, "Alone in a Crowd" (from I Only Wrote This Song for You: A Tribute to Johnny Thunders) and a fab take on Doug Sahm's "She's About a Mover" from '96. This and more pushes Más y Más out of the group of multi-CD boxes devoted to defunct artists and into the camp of justly deserved career overviews created while the subjects are still in full flight. --Andrew Bartlett

5.0 out of 5 stars A Breathless Compelation of one of America's best January 2, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Like the Grateful Dead, Los Lobos is a selected taste with an auidence to match. Clearly thier musical depth is what keeps them intersting and entertaining. The combination of traditonal Mexican/Chicano endeavours and farily straight forward rock and roll/rythymn blues may leave some wondering what in the world they are trying to communicate. This is clearly a group of people with tremendous cultural pride that have learned the songs of their fathers with such precision and competency that this itself would stand as a work alone. Just have a listen to Del Este DeLos Angeles to understand this. Taken as a straight rock and roll band Los Lobos delivers a body of work that leaves the listener wanting more. This 4 CD compelation is stunning and should be in the collection of any serious listenter of "adult rock and roll". Long live the wolf.

5.0 out of 5 stars Los Lobos An American Treasure January 13, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There are two rock groups who through their musical excursions set the standard when it comes to exploring Americana. The Band was the first and it appears that Los Lobos has inherited and expanded on that journey along with a strong dose of latin flavor added to the mix. They share the same multi-instrumental abilities of The Band,utilizing an eclectic selection of material that takes them far from their East Los Angeles roots. As the foremost purveyors of chicano influenced rock, Los Lobos pays honor to not only their Mexican heritage but to all the other musical styles they were exposed to growing up in the neighborhoods of L.A. This box set wonderfully reveals the full extant of their relationship with various genres encompassing the blues,country & western,mexican folk (rancheras,norteno,cumbias,etc.)R&B,Rock AND Roll,jazz,and soul music. Los Lobos are an American treasure and this collection is a reflection of that.In fact this box is treasure chest unto itself. America's premier roots rockers. Five Stars Plus. Own It!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great collection from a great band!! November 18, 2000
Format:Audio CD
If this collection doesn't get your feet moving, check your pulse!
There's plenty on this four disk retrospective for every Los Lobos fan, from their touching, acoustic Mexican ballads, to the driving rock and roll that they've been blowing the roofs off bars, clubs, and theaters with for years.
It's so rare to find a band that doesn't have a weak link. Every member is an outstanding musician in his own right, and this collection admirably showcases their many talents.
I've had the pleasure of seeing Los Lobos a number of times since ~1984, and they just keep getting better. If you hear that they're going to be playing in your area, don't miss the chance to see one of America's greatest bands. You won't be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Los Lobos-El Cancionero November 21, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Los Lobos is, by far, one of the most talented bands on the planet; and this box set is evidence. I cannot wait for the next collection as they have recorded so much more since the release of this.

El Cancionero tracks the band from its early East L.A. stages playing , essentially mexican/american folk music flavored with a little all-american rock-a-billy.

The set then demonstrates the bands eclectic talents in rock, soul, country, and of course, muchos rancheras,corridos, cumbias, as well as the band's ventures into mariachi style music as documented on its critically-acclaimed release La Pistola y El Corazon.

The set comes complete with a full-color booklet documenting LL's history as well as track by track notes from Louis Perez.

A definite must for any Los Lobos fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Far from.... December 14, 2005
Format:Audio CD
....just another band...this gracious and generous box not only covers the rocking, fertile ground plowed by the "Just Another Band from East L.A." double, but also includes hearty samplings from their more modern, experimental, avant-garde-y era...I'm more of a fan of the earlier, more rootsy stuff, like "I got loaded" and "How will the wolf survive", but still, the latter era has its moments, like the gorgeous and seductive, "Kiko"...so, it's all here...

Combine that with great extras and covers like "What's Going On" and "Tomorrow Never Knows", and it adds up to a first-rate collection and a must for the roots rock fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing compilation February 23, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Last weekend, I loaded these four CDs into my car's deck and drove from DC to New York. The drive was an absolute joy. This set is a continuing series of wonderful surprises. If you haven't really listened to these guys before (I hadn't), buy this and be prepared to smile a lot.

5.0 out of 5 stars A blazing paradigm of a collection... March 8, 2001
By Mazzy
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Since its early Winter release, this has been on my turntable, I mean CD player more than anything else. An amazing collection that shows the vastness of the Los Lobos legacy. Their beautiful Spanish tunes along with wonderfully written intricut Rock Music. Their own style is added to cover tunes and their splinter groups push the envelope even further. Just saw them live at the Fillmore in San Francisco and they have become a mixture of all the great live dance bands bringing their hight sprited originallity to American Music. Buy this collection now!
