Los Lobos: Los Lobos Goes Disney FCC: Clean, unless they managed to sneak an expletive in Spanish. (reviewed by “Uncle Steve”)|
Wow! Los Lobos instrumentation and singing (some in Spanish) meets classic Disney songs. Genius! Some of it is forced & campy (think “The Wiggles”), but recommended tracks are rise above that.
Overall: Much of this is just novelty. Vocal and instrumental performances and production are top-notch.
Recommended Tracks: 1 (Ska rhythm and vocals in Spanish), 3 (presented as a traditional Mexican ballad), 6 (beautiful ballad, Randy Newman-penned), 8 (swinging version of “Cruella de Vil”), 13 (Surf guitar + accordion lead the “When You Wish Upon a Star/It’s a Small World” instrumental medley).
