Actually listened to this record a few days ago but was being a lazy blogger over the weekend.
And I have listened to this record numerous times. It's an all time classic in my book. Again, weird that I've never seen Los Lobos in concert.
I also just picked up their album By The Light of the Moon on vinyl over the weekend. I'll give that a spin tonight so I can squeeze it on here.
I did have a thought while being on this renewed Los Lobos kick. Why the hell aren't they in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? You always here people raise stinks about hard rock/metal bands not being inducted (and rightfully so) but I think the same can be said for these guys. Their longevity and consistency needs to be recognized.
This song is up there with Lone Justice's "Shelter" for being one of my faves from the 80's.
