Happy birthday to David Hidalgo, singer/guitarist in Los Lobos, and hired hand and collaborator with noted artists such as Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Elvis Costello and Paul Simon. Hidalgo turns 58 today, and will hopefully be around for a long time. To mark his birthday, let's play one of Los Lobos' finest songs, "One Time, One Night". It appeared on the band's excellent 1987 album By The Light Of The Moon and also featured over the opening credits for the Robert Duvall/Sean Penn film Colors. Hidalgo co-wrote the song with fellow Lobo Louie Pérez.
