Los Lobos

Los Lobos is working on a children’s album of Disney covers. What a great idea.

The 30-year veterans of mex-rock music will cover Robin Hood’s Not in Nottingham, 101 Dalmatians’ Cruella De Vil, and also, according to band member Louis Perez, “a Grateful Dead-style version of `Zippity Doo Dah’; a surf version of `When You Wish Upon a Star; a Randy Newman song from `Toy Story, `I Will Go Sailing No More’; a Spanish version of `Hi Ho,’ and `Bella Notte’ from “Lady and the Tramp,’ with one section in Spanish.”

Hear their cover version of I Wanna Be Like You from The Jungle Book, originally swung by Louis Prima. Link to Kipling’s book, just for fun.

    I for one consider Lobos as the greatest American rock band. Thanks for the update
