This Hybrid SACD plays in both CD and SACD players, as well as all SACD-compatible DVD players.
Los Lobos might have touted themselves as "just another band from East L.A.," but it's quite likely that even the group's humble members recognized that few-if any-other artists in the late 1980s rivaled their soulful music, rousing performances, and eclectically blended arrangements. While lacking the commercial status of the quintet's subsequent La Bamba release, By the Light of the Moon stands as the band's most enjoyable excursion into American-hued soul, penetratingly reflective lyrics, and earnest roots rock. The music-making is simply extraordinary.
Shifting into storytelling mode, Los Lobos use By the Light of the Moon as an opportunity to meditate on everyday America and channel the fate of normal communities. Issues of faith, mortality, love, disillusionment, and melancholy inform narratives that are on the same socially conscious level as those of period-era Bruce Springsteen and John Mellencamp.
