5.0 out of 5 stars Covers that respectfully honor the originals 27 Aug. 2014
By G. Brozeit - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you've ever seen Los Lobos play live, you know that one of the pleasures is watching them cover songs that they like. Often their covers are better than or rival the original versions. This album is a testament to that. Tom Waits and Richard Thompson can appreciate these covers (as can we)!
5.0 out of 5 stars A great release from a great band that seems it can't do wrong. 5 April 2015

This is a cool EP. Can't miss when you start out with a tasteful version of a Tom Waits tune. Highly recommended indeed.

4.0 out of 5 stars ABSOLUTELY AMAZING, BUT TOO SHORT BY HALF! 15 April 2005
By o dubhthaigh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
One of the wolves great strengths is their ability to cover a tune and make it their own. Their usurpation of Neil Young's "Cinnamon Girl," "Down by the River" and "Cowgirl in the Sand" remain the definitive renditions of each of these tracks. Unfortunately, none of them made it onto this EP. There's no reason for this to be an EP. LL has generated so much incredible heat, that even on the heals of THE RIDE CD, in which they relegated themselves (unwisely) to back-up band status, a full CD of cover tunes from their career, live or studio, would have been just amazing.

In any case, from the opening Waits number, through the live rendition of "Marie", the band is on fire. It reaches an emotional high point with Richard Thompson's "Shoot Out the Lights," again making this song their own, and nearly eclipsing the scorching versions RT has effected. Costello's "Uncomplicated" is so finely turned that I really had forgotten that the Liverpool troll had written it. Womack's "More Than I Can Stand" stands on a par with the very fine tracks that were the highlights of THE RIDE. This is a greater CD than THE RIDE. Less is more and that's a shame, as a little more would have been a whole lot of great music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Returning a Favor 9 Aug. 2004
By B. Niedt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Promised as a follow-up to Los Lobos' last CD, "The Ride", this collection of songs returns the favor of the songwriter-artists who collaborated on that prior release. These guys have continued to satisfy over the years with straight-ahead rock n'roll as well as experimental departures, but this CD reminds us that they're also a killer cover band. and as a another reviewer noted, in a way it's a little more satisfying than "The Ride", in that there are no "guest stars" to distract from the music. All seven tracks of this EP are really fine, though my personal favorites are Bobby Womack's "More than I Can Stand" and Elvis Costello's "Uncomplicated". They do justice as well to "Jockey Full of Bourbon", one of my favorite Tom Waits songs, as well as a lovely version of Ruben Blades' "Patria". Though David Hidalgo's vocals on "Shoot Out the Lights" don't have the urgency of Richard Thompson's original, the guitar work is nearly on a par with Thompson's. The live version of Dave Alvin's "Marie, Marie" is competent, if a bit prefunctory. Overall, though, this is an excellent selection of songs, and a perfect companion to "The Ride".

5.0 out of 5 stars Barreling Down the Boulevard 17 Feb. 2005
By Melting American - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Well it seems Los Lobos have gotten it in gear with this album. They have taken control of the wheel and run through some fine self produced tunes. Undoubtedly the chemistry working with Robert Carranzas production near their turf in Rowland Heights made for some dynamite sessions. Shoot out the lights is my favorite with Black Sabbath Ironman influences. One of the great things about artist who aren't afraid to cover other peoples songs is that it tends to water the tree to grow more branches. I have heard Richard Thompson before but not like that. Now I may search out his record with Shootout the lights. The Tom Waits cover is good. The arrangement sounds like the song with the refrain I smoked two joints before I smoked two joints, then I smoked two more. I wonder what would have happened had they produced their records since La Bamba and collaborated with more of their fine friends on songs? They have come along way since their conjunto shows at Barnsdall Park and this effort has renewed my interest in future releases. Check out David Hidalgos work in Eric Claptons Crossroads DVD and see whose songs they may run over next 'Barreling Down the Boulevard'!
