This is what a band that has been together for 39 years sounds like (28 if you start counting from the time saxophonist Steve Berlin joined in 1984). They're still at it, now touring worldwide with Neil Young & Crazy Horse.
Los Lobos' masterpiece, Kiko, turns 20 this year and the East L.A. band celebrates with an August 21 remastered re-edition of the original album, a CD recorded at the San Diego House of Blues (Kiko Live), and the DVD/Blu-ray of the concert (all formats include bonus demos and non-album live takes). See the Current on August 22 for a look back on the making of a Chicano masterpiece that hasn't aged a bit. — Enrique Lopetegui
