This is probably a thread asking for zero replies, but anyone able to suggest a good place to start with these guys?
is where I know these guys from... Saw them live once as well at a festival, which was good fun! So my advice, after not listening to any of their albums is go see them live to start with.
Sorry, not very helpful!
That is, "How Will the Wolf Survive?" It's awesome and has straight-ahead, no-nonsense T-Bone Burnett production. There's always time later to move into the Mitchell Froom-produced stuff (Kiko), which also is great but a little more "experimental."
Saw 'em live in '92 I think... at some artsy summer-home community holding a "Latin American studies" week. I think they thought they had booked a mariachi band or something, and Los Lobos came out and ROCKED IT. Loud. People's heads were exploding everywhere.
