Los Lobos, Del Este De Los Angeles (Just Another Band From East L.A.) (1978)
We are driving around Los Angeles and I’m playing this album in the car – and lamenting the fact that some of the really great Los Lobos albums (which is most of them, I guess) are not that easy to find on vinyl in New Zealand. And I had forgotten to look in some of the stores in America thus far. Then we go to Amoeba in Hollywood and I walk right in and find this exact album – one of the band’s earliest, the one that kinda put them on the map really. Such a great band. Such a great album. (Such a great record store). Score!
Sample Track: El Canelo
