LoveThatAlbum-E27-finalcut.mp31992 saw the release of the album considered to be Los Lobos’ masterpiece, Kiko. They formed a partnership with Mitchell Froom and Tchad Blake who produced and engineered an album that sounded both familiar and different.
I cannot believe that it’s been 20 years since the release of Kiko. Los Lobos is celebrating by releasing a 20th anniversary edition of the album, and I’m celebrating by making it the focus of Episode 27 of Love That Album podcast. I’m joined by Michael Pursche (of the great Sitting In A Bar In Adelaide podcast) to discuss the album song by song. I’m also thrilled to chat to Steve Berlin, the band’s saxophonist and keyboard player, about his recollections of recording the album, its legacy and being on Sesame Street as a day job (listen and find out – it’s a great story).
Also, Eric Reanimator joins us again to discuss the Jet Black Berries album “Desperate Fires”. It’s another great segment from Eric.
