“How Will the Wolf Survive?” is the major label debut album of Los Lobos. In 1989, it was ranked #30 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of The 100 Greatest Albums of The 1980s. In 2003, the album was ranked number 461 on Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
This terrific mid-80s release is a great place to start sampling the work of Los Lobos, one of this country’s most eclectic and essential bands. From traditional Mexican folk music to straight-ahead rockers, to outright country, the band just rocks.
One of the greatest bands ever to come out of the L.A. music scene.
