5.0 out of 5 stars Just Another Band from East LA - I should Kiko 4 Nov 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Now 20 years old Kiko represents one of Los Lobos's finest moments. Produced by Mitchell Froom & Tchad Blake it displayed the enormous song writing talent and innovation that was in the band. This live DVD is superb - LIVE they are an immensely talented band led by the magnificent David Hildago & Cesar Rosas the rest of the band are supreme musicians. Mixing their own musical roots with their own songs this DVD is a triumph. An essential purchase - best MUSIC DVD of the year. Extras include interviews with the band - it's one of the best live DVDs I've seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Idea 5 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Wolves most original album (the best?). This live track-by-track performance is a great idea. Lobos are a superb live band and this `revisit' is a more in-depth as the music is allowed to develop a little further.

5.0 out of 5 stars Believe It Or Not: A Great Album Is Actually Improved Upon! 12 Sep 2012
By Alan Hutchins - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Kiko was Los Lobos' seventh full length LP (counting their two albums independently released in the 70's) and was their first full length to be produced by the Mitchell Froom/Tschad Blake team. It was released into a grunge-infested musical landscape in 1992 (and recently reissued); it showed a band capable of remarkable diversity and development. As the previous LP "The Neighborhood" had hinted at, this was no longer a band that never strayed far from their roots-rock-and-conjunto/ranchera comfort zone. The Kiko album largely turned off of that well-traveled highway and instead took some bumpy side-roads into strange places like psychedelia, acoustic "Americana", blues, and punkish guitar blasts ("Whiskey Trail") that, although infused with some Froom/Blake weirdness still came out sounding pretty much like Los Lobos. This was clearly now a band that was not afraid to take chances and experiment.

Kiko Live documents a 2006 San Diego House of Blues show with the group performing the entire album. Although all songs from Kiko are performed, apparently in the same order as the disc, the 52-and-a-half minute studio Kiko has been stretched out to over 76 minutes. This isn't exactly Grateful Dead style jamming going on, but there are plenty of chances for David Hidalgo and Cesar Rosas to crank some longer guitar solos on songs like "Just A Man", "Peace" or "That Train Don't Stop Here". This expanded approach tends to enhance rather than taint the Kiko experience---after all, who wouldn't want such a great album to go on longer than usual, or to hear such great guitarists (especially Hidalgo) let it rip? At this point, the band had been a great live act for around a third of a century, and they put their musical telepathy and dynamic range on display all over the place. They really know what they're doing here, even on the Kiko songs that they never or rarely played live before, such as the rousing horn-driven waltz called "Rio de Tenampa" that closes the proceedings.

The live sound is excellent(I can't figure out what one other reviewer is talking about in the criticism of the sound), the performances outstanding, and the overall quality so high that you may find yourself actually preferring this to the studio version. If you already love Kiko, you still need this to hear how the work has evolved and grown for stage presentation. If you don't already know and love Kiko, this should cause you to figure out what a great album and band this is. This group is exhibit A in the case against the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame selection process--with their high quality releases with inventive, new material spanning around thirty years, stunningly good live shows and tenacious longevity, there's no earthly reason why Los Lobos haven't been inducted yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars knockout live record 29 Aug 2012
By G. Wallace - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is quite a beautiful recital of the stellar Kiko songs in order. Of course Froom's special sounds are replaced by kickier rhythms and the superb guitar players get a chance to stretch a bit but what's not to like about that? I was very happy with sound of this live recording. Bring on Colossal Head!

5.0 out of 5 stars great band perform a rousing set 14 Jun 2013
By Donald E. Gilliland - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have to admit that I'd nearly forgotten how great an album that "Kiko" was when it was released back in 80s. That album was packed with memorable songs, evoking several musical sides of this supremely talented band. I was persuaded by the glowing reviews to get this live set and I'm very pleased with what I hear. They've turned the studio album into a 76-minute tour-de-force. The sound is dynamic and powerful, but also crisp and tight. Yes, there are some extended guitar solos but the basic sound doesn't differ dramatically from that of the studio album. Unlike one reviewer, I don't think that Los Lobos sound like a "garage band" on this album whatsoever. What they DO sound like is a veteran band that play with assurance and passion and skill. Fans of Los Lobos should like this live recording.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent live set 28 Aug 2012
By Lasudio - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I saw the band do this Kiko revisited concert at the Fillmore, and loved it. Kiko was their crowning achievement, and the bank took the already -stellar song structures and developed wonderful new and exciting creations. I've played the new live CD repeatedly, and am thrilled to hear that this set takes me back to the glories of that tour. They are one of the very best live bands.
If you like (or as in my case, love) the artistry this band has generated for for decades, but have not yet experienced their live show, then you need this CD. Prepare for happiness.
If you have been a Lobos concert-goer, and are waiting too long for the next show, you may need it even more.
