Los Lobos
-The Ride-
By Bob Silvestri

The latest from Los Lobos titled The Ride features collaborations with a variety of diverse artists on new and classic Los Lobos songs. In some cases the guests also wrote the songs with the band just for this CD. Café Tacuba is featured on the opener “La Venganza de Los Pelados”. Mitchell Froom and Greg Leisz on keyboards and pedal steel guitar respectively help out on “Rita” while Little Willie G. gets funky with “Is This All There Is?” with horns and full rave-up workout. Exceptional collaborations with Elvis Costello on “Matter Of Time”, Tom Waits and Martha Gonzales on “Kitate” and old pal Dave Alvin on “Somewhere In Time” make this worth the cost alone. Richard Thompson, Garth Hudson, Ruben Blades, Bobby Womack and others also appear. For more information on Los Lobos go to www.LosLobos.org
