**Spotlight on the new album from Los Lobos – The Town And The City

This new album of mostly subdued grooves creates a real sense of place. It could be South Tucson or East L.A., but themes of family, work, home, immigration, social strength and urban decay percolate throughout. You could call it East L.A. blues, not a blues in standard form but one in substance and feel. This is another chapter in the long life of Los Lobos, the greatest living, working and creating rock and roll band.
