Song of the Day: Los Lobos - Saint Behind the Glass

My first exposure to Los Lobos, though I didn't know it at the time, was the soundtrack for the movie La Bamba, in which they played all of Richie Valens' music.  I was probably around 11 or 12 at the time, and it wasn't until I was in my early 20s that I bought their Kiko album, for reasons I can't quite remember.  It's a good album, but to me, this track is far and away the best on the album, despite not being an accurate representation of the band's overall sound.

Note:  for an interesting and provocative story involving Los Lobos, google their name and Paul Simon's together.  Fun reading
