2014 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl LP pressing reissue of the 1987 soundtrack mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso (Elvis Presley, Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry) from the Slash Records tapes and includes the original LP sized artwork, not seen since it's original release.1987 was a big year for Los Lobos and a huge blockbuster movie called La Bamba based on the life and times of the late great Richie Valens. It's success truly made way for a number one soundtrack companion LP, which rode to the top of both the sales and airplay charts with multiple format hit records for over a year. The box office smash featured some of the biggest songs of that year with Los Lobos's #1 smash hit single "La Bamba" as well as seven more Los Lobos rockin' champions like "Come on Let's Go", "Framed" and the torch ballad Richie Valens was so well remembered for, "Donna". Superstars like Brian Setzer also contributed to the #1 soundtrack too with tunes like "Summertime Blues" and Bo Diddley's own rockin' "Who Do You Love". Carlos Santana was also on hand for the film score and through it all, the La Bamba LP will forever be known as one of rock's finest movie and musical soundtrack's ever recorded.
