Just another cover band from East L.A.

The rock group Los Lobos has a catalog of its own spectacular songs that goes on for days, but one of the high points of their shows is their masterful handling of other people's music. The first time I heard them play Neil Young's "Cinnamon Girl," in the early days of summer shows at Edgefield, it lifted the crowd off the ground.

So their album of covers, due out Friday, sounds like a lot of fun. So far, the handful of tracks that they've pre-released sure are good. If you're an Apple Music type, you can hear them here. David Hidalgo nailing "Sail On, Sailor" with that pure voice of his – for some of us, it's goose bump material.
