They lept into the national spotlight in 1987, with their cover of "La Bamba," and across four decades Los Lobos (Cesar Rosas, Conrad Lozano, David Hidalgo, Louie Pérez, and Steve Berlin) have ranged through virtually the entire breadth of American vernacular music. Morris traces the entire arc of the band's career, drawing on new interviews with Los Lobos members and their principal collaborators. He describes the creation of every album, while celebrating the band's expansive reach and creative experimentalism.
