Los Lobos shows at the Filmore in December are an annual tradition. The shows at the Fillmore are usually pretty special, and the ones from 1998 don’t disappoint. The band released a great CD Live at Filmore which won album of the year from me in 2005. The live DVD from that Los Lobos show is also essential. Too bad they didn’t come out with a t-shirt for Live at the Filmore, I love that flying taco design!
Both shows from 1998 will be posted, look for 12-05-1998 tomorrow.
Sample that tune “That Train Don’t Stop Here Anymore” over here.
When you download this one, be sure to check out “Kiko and the Lavender Moon”. The album of the same name has always been a favorite, and I didn’t see the band play this song live until recently.
A horn section from the opening band comes out to play with Los Lobos at the end of the second set. They go in to the James Brown tune “Gonna Have a Funky Good Time”, which I like quiet a bit. I might have post some Maceo and JB’s around here soon.
