"My poor neighbors...

This DVD captures, quite simply, one of the greatest live performances I've ever seen. There is NO way to listen to this DVD at anything but maximum volume, and there is NO way to listen to this DVD sitting down!

Now I have been a fan of Los Lobos since their first album back in the mid-eighties, and I saw them once at the Irving Plaza ballroom in NYC.

Still I was NOT prepared for the power and wonder of this amazing concert, filmed earlier this year at San Fran's legendary Fillmore.

To say that these guys are master musicians is an understatement. Throw in the fact that the core group has been playing together for thirty years now -- a fact that this concert was intended to commemorate -- and you have a band that takes their music to dizzying and spectacular heights.

The Mexican/American rhythms on display here are irresistible, the melodies of the songs memorable, and the lyrics sensitive and intelligent.

Basically I was off the couch from the first number and try as I could to sit down and take it easy (I'm more than fifty years young, after all), I kept popping up again, dancing like a banshee and shaking the floorboards!

The songs here span the group's career, with some highlights for me being Maria Christina, Luz De Mi Vida, Kiko and the Lavendar Moon, Mexico Americano, I Got Loaded, Good Morning Aztlan, and Cumbia Raza. But it's all killer, no filler, let me assure you!

And just when you think things can't get any hotter -- during the band's blazing encore of their early hit Shakin' Shakin' Shakes -- out comes some dude named Robert Randolph, who gets the damnedest sounds out of a pedal steel I've ever heard, and cranks the whole shebang up yet another notch!

The sound and audio here are as excellent as the performances. I must add, however, that this is the LOUDEST DVD I've ever heard, and when I first played it, I was hearing some very unpleasant distortion. It turned out that the DVD was so loud, it was overloading the front end of my Sony PS2, which I use as a DVD player. So -- if you're hearing distortion, check the Audio settings under the Setup menu of your DVD player and make sure your DVD player volume is set to its lowest setting, or STANDARD.

I can't say enough about this DVD -- and I just saw John Fogerty play the Beacon the other week! Los Lobos Live at the Fillmore is a MUST-HAVE for any fan of roots rock, Mexican rock, blues rock, soul, melting pot music, whatever you want to call it.

It is also an excellent reminder of what TRULY makes America great -- the mix of cultures that came together to create such a potent and incendiary brew as this.

This DVD gets my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION, and is as good a reason as any to keep fighting the good fight in these appalling and disheartening Bushist times."

"I've been a fan for 20 years (a rookie- compared to some) and have been craving something like this for a long time. As a veteran of too many Lobos concerts to count, I can say with confidence that Live at the Fillmore is the real deal. The sound and picture quality are both excellent but really, what makes this performance a winner is that the Lobos on-stage magic is captured faithfully. The band delivers the typical blue-collar, humble, virtuoso rocking good time that we have come to expect and crave. The guys are in their element- oblivious to cameras and the like. They just do their thing with inspired performances of (among others) "Hurry Tomorrow", "Tears of God", "That Train Don't Stop Here", "Good Morning Aztlan" and a rollicking finale of "Mas y Mas." There are bound to be a few naysayers that complain that for example, the extras are pretty limited. That may be true although what we do get is a very unique (though brief) look at a side of the boys we never see. But for a first effort, on the whole, a true Lobos fan will not be disappointed. The danger is that with this DVD, the boys may no longer be music's best kept secret. No matter. David, Cesar, Louie, Conrad and Steve will always remain true to who they are- just another band from East L.A.
Que disfruten!"

"Los Lobos finally puts out a live DVD and it's first class. Thankfully, they included a PCM stereo track as well as the usual 5.1 Dolby Digital encocding. This ranks amongst the best concert DVDs I own. The 3 guitar lineup is outstanding."
Finally a LIVE Los Lobos "record"! WOO HOO !!

"Let's get right to the point: It's terrific. Great sound, good set list, and a ripping performance. Highlights include a torched version of "Done Gone Blue" --taking the song to crunching rock heights never hinted at in the studio version, and a raise-the-hair-on-the back-of-your-neck ball of fire version of "Mas Y Mas" with pedal steel virtuoso guest star Robert Randolph sitting in. I just kept wanting to make it louder and louder and LOUDER. I think my wife and kids thought I had totally lost it... Dig in my friends."
