Biography

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

This triple-Grammy winning group of consummate musicians and songwriters out of East L.A. began their career interpreting Mexican folk music and went on to be a globally renowned purvayor of a diverse and adventurous repertoire of roots-flavored masterpieces. Drawing from rock, country, blues, folk, R&B, Americana, and traditional Spanish and Latin American idioms, Los Lobos continually pushed the boundaries of their sound, while remaining magnificently gritty and graceful throughout. Warner. 2006.

La Bamba...fabulous!!

Wolf Tracks does a reasonable job of condensing the Los Lobos catalogue into a one disc overview and, as such, is a pretty good place to start.
Anthony S. Prowse
It's definitely a good starting point for anyone who doesn't know their music, like I didn't until quite recently.

Where does one start with the Los Lobos catalogue? There have been three Los Lobos "Best Of's" (a 4 disc set, a 2 disc set and this single disc) and, although they all give a fair overview of the band, I would suggest that if you are hard-core Los Lobos fan you probably own most of this material already. Los Lobos have been releasing albums now for 30 years and have gone through a number of stylistic changes in this time. They started off as a traditional Mexican music band and have moved through country, blues, atmospheric groove, rock, rock and roll, R&B and pop. What has distinguished them throughout has been superb musicianship, songwriting, lyrics and vocals and an unbending desire to release albums that satisfied the band before a record company. All this has led to many vastly different albums some of which may alienate the casual listener. For example, compare "Will The Wolf Survive" with "KIKO", "La Pistola y el Corazon" with "Colossal Head" or "Papa's Dream" (a superb children's album) with "The Town and the City" and you will see the diversity of the band. This all leads to the difficulty in compiling a definitive "best of" collection for the casual listener. One may love the traditional Mexican stuff but not the hard-core, groove based material or visa versa. Wolf Tracks does a reasonable job of condensing the Los Lobos catalogue into a one disc overview and, as such, is a pretty good place to start. If you like all the music here then I urge you to go get as many albums as you can. However if you like the more accessible material, start with "Will the Wolf Survive" and "By the Light of the Moon" then move forward with care. If you like the rock material, you can't get any better than "The Town and the City" and the previous album, "The Ride".Read more ›

... but, essentially this is the third retread of the same canon - Live at The Fillmore, Acoustic en vivos, and now this. It's a slightly better compilation than the other two, but, the wolves have a bit of Costello-itis: retread the same stuff ad nauseum. It doesn't sound particularly remastered.

I, for one, wish they would release some of the really amazing sets I have heard from them (The Fillmore doesn't make the cut). For example, their set at the Philadelphia Folk Festival some years back was maybe the best 45 minutes of live music I have ever heard, and closed with an incendiary take on Neil Young's "Cowgirl In the Sand," over the protestations of the numb-skull mc of that festival. I'm sure you would find it interesting hearing an audience boo a moron who was intruding off the stage - it just leant an extra edge to the whole set. Best part was they wound it up with a segue into "Cinnamon Girl" that exceeded their alotted time considerably. It's great to see control freaks swallow their tongues and reenforces the delicious subversiveness that rock can foster.

None of that is on offer here. Still, if you have not purchased either of the last two live discs, then skip them and buy this, and hope that if LL can't figure out what to do next, perhaps they'll mine their live catalogue for some remarkable shows.

Isn't this the spirit of what America should be? Understanding, tolerance and melding? Not building fences, work cards and vigilante militias. Isn't that what America was supposed to be to begin with? Los Lobos have always embodied that ideal musically. Tejano, Norteno, folk music (both American and Mexican), Blues, Rock and Roll, R&B, Country etc. etc.
This "Best Of" is a pretty good grouping, but, as many people have said, it's hard to really compile a best of by a band that so prolifically releases quality music like Los Lobos. I've never heard a "filler" track by this band on any album. It shows that they take a lot of pride and musicianship in what they release. I suppose that "Wolf Tracks" should be considered an "Intro", rather than "Best Of". It's a good place for anyone interested to start. A lot of good music, and only a taste really.
The unreleased track, "Border Town Girl" is a really great, high energy, blues/boogie, kinda like "Dont Worry Baby". Worth the price of the album alone, one of my favorite Los Lobos songs ever.
If you're interested in the band at all, you'll love pretty much everything they've done, and wont regret spending the dollars for this. Buy it/download it, burn it for your friends. Enjoy!

I would have an impossible time putting such a CD together, as they would need like 3 or 4 CDs to contain all of my favorites. This CD threads the needle in pulling tracks off of almost all of their releases from like 2004 going back to early eighties, quite a feat but it left me wanting more. A great choice for getting acquainted with the Lobos, and believe to this day they still are a terrific band to see live in the small venues they play!

LOS LOBOS-WOLF TRACKS/THE BEST OF LOS LOBOS: Few bands have explored more rootsy territory than LOS LOBOS; whether pumping out the thought provoking folk pop of WILL THE WOLF SURVIVE, the RNB-imbedded barnstormer SHAKIN' SHAKIN' SHAKES or the experimental KIKO & THE LAVENDER MOON, these cool cats obviously never met a groove they couldn't master. Crackling covers of pioneering Latino rocker RICHIE VALENS' LA BAMBA and C'MON LET'S GO were fluke radio hits which provided little insight into their wide ranging talents and musical diversity. Fronted by singer/guitarists CESAR ROSAS (he of the ever present dark shades and chin whiskers) and DAVID HIDALGO, they also flirted effortlessly with jazz, Tex-Mex and alt rock, bringing lap steel, accordion, harmonica, banjo, sax and traditional Mexican instruments into the mix. For a peek into LOS LOBOS' deeper catalogue, the double disc anthology JUST ANOTHER BAND FROM EAST L. A., which includes missing tracks such as THE NEIGHBORHOOD, I GOT LOADED and their rollicking DEAD cover BERTHA is a recommended alternative to the tight celebratory sampler WOLF TRACKS.

RATING: FOUR AMIGOS

Ironic... I'm guessing the two albums came out around the same time? That, and someone at Amazon probably remembered that Lobos backed Simon on one of the tracks on the Graceland album --the album's final track: "All Around the World (The Myth of Fingerprints)" -- and thought it would... Read More
