5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Effort - Border Music June 10, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I love the synergy in the Texas Tornados -- for me, it's the best work of Freddy Fender and also a fine career capstone for the durable Doug Sahm. I guess you'd call this "Tex-Mex" but I think of it as "Border Music." It borders on the USA and Mexico, it borders on country, folk, and rock. There is great musicianship here, even though it's a completely casual sound. These guys have a feel for the music and it flows like water. In most of the tunes, the accordian drives the music, and you can sense the culture. If I am looking for anything to which this music might be compared, it's the folk side of Los Lobos. Great stuff.

This album was originally released during 1996, by the original Texas Tornados, the "4 Aces": Doug Sahm, Augie Myers, Freddy Fender, and Flaco Jimenez. In the liner notes there is a "write-up", about the album by Doug Sahm. The music is great, it'll take you down to San Antonio, and South Texas, and who knows where? It's great unique "Tex-Mex" music at it's best. Besides the 4 members, there are many, many other studio musicians listed as being on the album.

The songs are:
1.Little Bit is Better Than Nada
2.Amor De Mi Vida
3.In my Mind
4.4 Aces
5.My Cruel Pain
6.Tell Me
7.Ta Bueno Compadre (It's OK Friend)
8.The Gardens
10.Clinging to You
11.Mi Morenita
12.The One I Love The Most

This is great "classic" Texas Tornados at their best. At the Hard Rock Cafe in Dallas, there is a large picture of these 4 original members of the Texas Tornados, along with a guitar, signed by all 4 original members. Anyway, if you like this band like I do, you'll probably like this display. Thank God they have reunited on the new 2010 release "Esta Bueno", with Doug's son Shawn in the line-up. It's a great album also. Thanks!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Winning Hand June 25, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
These "Four Aces" may be grandfathers, but they've still got it all. From the music one hears their playfulness, their emotions, their mastery of the music, and their sensuality. Thanks, hombres, for the happy feelings I get when I listen. Don't you just love those men from Texas <grin>

5.0 out of 5 stars 4 Aces is a wining hand indeed! June 19, 2000
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This has to be the quintisential Tornado recording, all members of the group seem to be in tip top form, performing the fervor of teens, these "oldtimers" can still show their stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Ace, How Sweet the Sound! August 8, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Doug Sahm, Augie Meyer, Freddy Fender, and Flaco Jimenez were four aces indeed when it comes to laying down some really tasty Tex-Mex grooves. Man, this CD smokes--the rockers will get you rocking, and the ballads will tear your heart out. Flaco's accordion weaves in and out of most of the tunes, and the whole group gets a chance to contribute on vocals. This is the Tornadoes' most integrated effort yet, the recording on which they sound the most like a band and the least like a committee. This is music that you really need to hear in your car--turn it up and let it rip. You'll soon be sporting a gloriously goofy grin as you start singing along like the long-lost Fifth Ace. Amazing Ace, how sweet the sound!
