Los Lobos - 40th Anniversary feat. Set Me Free Rosa Lee from the album,Disconnected in New York City


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

Product Description

2010 relerase from the Grammy-winning East L.A. band, their first collection of new original material in four years. Featuring powerful Rock 'n' Roll, blistering Blues, two Spanish-language tracks, and even a Grateful Dead cover, the album is classic Lobos through and through.


"5 stars. A masterful album from a great American band, at the peak of its considerable powers...Their mnusic is as good as it gets, period." --Uncut, August 1, 2010

"Los Lobos' many strengths are in abundance here." --Mojo, August 1, 2010

"...Low on ego-driven flash but high on exciting, emotionally compelling music...On Tin Can Trust, Los Lobos prove that tough times don't last, but tough music does, and those are words we can all live by." --All Music Guide, July 22,2010

5.0 out of 5 stars TOUGH TIMES.......GREAT MUSIC August 3, 2010
By dickydo
Format:Audio CD
Is it out of the question to suggest this is the greatest American Rock N Roll band of all time? Not as far fetched as you may think. If the criteria is longevity, consistency, and superior quality, is there another band that can lay claim? For my money this is their best work since the ambitious and highly original "Kiko" in the 90's. This is topical, powerful material, the title track and "Burn It Down" are somber laments about today's times, where people simply can't make ends meet. These downtrodden stories are complemented by great music, played by a band at the peak of it's collective powers. The Hidalgo-Perez songwriting team is as good as it gets, telling compelling stories without being preachy. The music itself is spot on throughout, with the only misstep being the collobaration with Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter, the hippie pathos of "All My Bridges Burning" is out of line with the tenor of the rest of the songs. There's still some fun to had, Cesar Rojas Spanish language gems rock full bore, as does the instrumental "Do The Murray" The cover of the Dead's "West L.A. Fadeaway sounds like Garcia and company without the sloppiness. Los Lobos, America's greatest rock band of ALL TIME!! This disc just might cement that legacy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trust Los Lobos to deliver quality rock and roll.. August 3, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I came late to Los Lobos's previous album "The town and the city" but I was absolutely amazed at how wonderful it was - a true modern rock classic. Four years later and this record carries on with a similar layered production, fabulous guitar playing and amazing vocals - although the lyrics aren't quite as focused and conceptual. Again the influences are apparent - rock, blues, country, Mexican - but like all great bands they have evolved their own unique sound that is pure 'Los Lobos'.

We get off to a great start with "Burn it down" with Susan Tedeschi on back-up vocals, closely followed by the loping blues-groove of "On Main Street". Both these tracks - along with the title track, the rocking instrumental "Do the Murray" and the closing track "27 Spanishes" - have wonderful guitars from David Hidalgo and Cesar Rosas. The band also covers the Grateful Dead's "West L.A. Fadeaway" and 'Dead writer' Robert Hunter shares the writing credits with Cesar Rosas on "All My Bridges Burning". And if you get tired of fabulous bluesy guitars and David Hidalgo's soulful voice then check out the Tex Mex polka of "Mujer Ingrata" and the cumbia swing of `Yo Canto'.

I can't recommend this record highly enough, this is a band who have been playing together for 35 years and are at the very top of their game, effortlessly turning out music of great quality that appeals both to the head and the heart. Although I don't think this is quite as good as "The town and the city" it's not far behind and I would love to see them touring Britain soon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Los Lobos in fine (if not transcendent) form August 14, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm a diehard Los Lobos fan, who will basically buy whatever they release. I thought "The Town and the City" was a great recording, on par with "Kiko" and the very best of their earlier work. This one is a notch lower. The Cesar Rosas tunes sound like retreads, however spirited, and come on--you know the well is running dry when you encounter "Burn It Down" and "All My Bridges Burning" on the same disc. And if you want to cover a Grateful Dead song, there are dozens of stronger candidates (including "Bertha," which they already released as a live cut in one of the box sets). That said, I'm never going to turn up my nose at David Hidalgo's singing, the blistering twin-guitar attack, and songs as good as "Tin Can Trust" and "Jupiter Or The Moon." And I'll buy the next one the day it comes out.

5.0 out of 5 stars How Come This Isn't On Top of the Charts? August 5, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Los Lobos is one of those bands that just keeps on putting out amazing tunes but never seems to garner the following that work of this quality should.

I can't imagine why. These guys are great.

I know that Tin Can Trust is a CD that I'll listen to constantly. The musicianship is seamless, the lyrics are deep, and raw emotion pulsates just beneath the surface.

My favorite songs are Burn It Down, with its catchy and insistent bass back beat, Jupiter or the Moon, a haunting and wistful love song, and 27 Spanishes, a wry and plaintive history of the new world in eight short verses. But every number takes you away.

Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Good One From Los Lobos September 2, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having had a chance to spin this record about 5 times now, my initial reaction holds: It's good, although I have to agree with many who comment that "All my bridges burning" is the weakest track.

I'm a big fan of all things Grateful Dead and the amazing Garcia/Hunter songs, the vast majority of which have more than stood the test of time, but "All my bridges" is below mediocre.

The rest of the album has a good mix of what Los Lobos have done best for about three decades now: Blues and garage rock influenced rock and roll, different styles of Mexican music, with a hint of psychedelics now and then.

As another reviewer mentioned, they can whip up some killer twin guitar jams, and the recording quality is outstanding.

Hope to catch them live again before too long, as they always put on a great show.

Comparing this album to their others (I have 'em all), I'd say that Tin Can Trust has the best collection of guitar sounds and textures since The Neighborhood (1990). Even IF the songwriting has slipped a bit from their glory days of the late 1980s (and that's debatable), we're still treated to their unique and imaginative use of simple words and musical figures. They make it all add up to more than "the sum of its parts." Each tune seems to represent a different side of the band, from their textured alt-rock sounds, to roots-y blues, hippie-jam-rock, and trad. Conjunto. You might wish for more than the occasional use of Steve Berlin's sax, but you get plenty of David Hildalgo's amazing guitar playing, with Cesar Rosas and Louie Perez contributing great parts as well. The guarded optimism of Perez's lyrics are still there, too. There are very few acts still around who can add such textural variations to basic roots-y sounds and still have it come out with an unforced, natural ease. They are journeymen and masters of their craft.
