3.0 out of 5 stars If You Can Find It Cheap --- Buy It! April 1 2010
By From the Musician's Pen TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I actually bought this because I wanted a CD of Richie Valens music but couldn't find one with good sound or at a decent price. Los Lobos do a great job here and I found it cheap so I took a chance. I'm wasn't a fan of the movie, and the soundtrack really does sound dated (1980's)... but it's a pleasurable listen all the way through. This 80's version of 50's music is done with fun, love and respect. I enjoyed Marshall Crenshaw's version of Buddy Holly. The cover of Jackie Wilson is really great.

My complaint with this CD is that it seems to be put together cheaply. It's not a very long CD, there are no liner notes and the sound quality is thin. Hopefully someday, a remastered version with bonus tracks will replace this (in the way that Dirty Dancing has received updated treatments). If you can find it cheap, it's worth it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sleep Walk? Feb. 5 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
La Bamba is one of my favourite movies of all time, in the ending they play Sleep Walk by Santo and Johnny and I too was surprised such a beautiful song wasn't included in the soundtrack! Other than that yes the soundtrack is great!

4.0 out of 5 stars RnR Reverence July 7 2003
Format:Audio CD
Los Lobos got their big break when they were asked to re-record (and mime for the movie) a number of Ritchie Valens' biggest hits for this soundtrack, and the production and performances are nothing short of fantastic.
I give it only 4 stars however, because they are covers, and respect must be paid to those stars who came up with them in the first place. But Marshall Crenshaw, who's presently one of rock's premiere songwriters, ably tackles Buddy Holly's "Crying, Waiting, Hoping", while Brian Setzer (wayyy before swing came back in a big way) seems the natural choice to cover Eddy Cochran's "Summertime Blues".
Weight is lent by having Bo Diddley's "Who Do You Love" performed by the man himself, but cover versions or not, the ripped-up, crumpled dollar-bills I used to pay for this album way back when was one of the best investments I ever made.

5.0 out of 5 stars To Nathan June 17 2003
Format:Audio CD
Great movie/soundtrack. Nathan, you refer to 2 different songs. "Over the Mountain, Across The Sea" by Johnnie and Joe, and "Sleepwalk" by Santo and Johnny. Why "Sleepwalk" wasn't put on the sountrack, considering it's relevence in the movie, I haven't figured out.

The name of the song is "Sleepwalk" by Santo & Johnny. I don't know if you'll even remember that you asked this question but there's the answer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Answer to your Question! March 21 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I grew up with the Ritchie Valens album, and the song title everyone is asking about(when the news comes over the radio about his death) is "Bluebirds Over the Mountain", sung by none other than Ritchie Valens! His album is great & I think you would enjoy all of his songs!
