"It took a little gymnastics, but we did it," Los Lobos' multi-instrumentalist Louie Perez says about making the guest-filled album . "Mavis and Bobby, we had to go to them. We'd send Garth Hudson a file and he'd go nuts on it. Waits, we sent an eight-track cassette and he messed around with it and sent it back. Then there were days where I'd pull up to Cesar's [guitarist Rosas] house and I look in the rearview mirror and Richard Thompson's pulling in behind me. There were so many different ways it got done, but this was really a needle and thread sewn into the fabric of what we're all about."

Garth Hudson plays on the tracks "La Venganza de los Pelados", where he does a piano solo on the end of the song, and "Chains of Love." Back in 1990, Levon Helm contributed vocals and mandolin to Los Lobos' great album The Neighbourhood.
