Product Description

Amazon.com

Less a band than the musical equivalent of a Tex-Mex combo platter, the Texas Tornados spotlight the complementary tastes of their four veteran members. This compilation extends from roadhouse rockers by the Sir Douglas Quintet's Doug Sahm ("Who Were You Thinkin' Of," "Adios Mexico") to novelty numbers from his quintet keyboardist Augie Meyers ("Que Paso," "Guacamole") to country and traditional Mexican balladry from Freddy Fender ("Wasted Days and Wasted Nights," "Mentiras"). The accordion virtuosity of Flaco Jimenez adds spice throughout. Since 11 cuts can barely sample the wide range of the group's individual talents, the collection serves as a better introduction than retrospective summation. --Don McLeese

TEXAS TORNADOS are a TEX-MEX supergroup that I can remember playing in the jukebox when hanging at the local bars back home. Their songs are fun, lively and will get you dancing. GUACAMOLE, HEY BABY QUE PASO, are two songs that when you start listening to the lyrics will just make you bust out laughing and having a good all time. WASTED DAYS AND WASTED NIGHTS is another great song that I really enjoy. This album is just full of great songs from a band that knows how to utilize all of their collective talents and combine them together. So go out get this album and be ready to hear some good music. After this, you will want to hear more of their music and get the rest of their albums.

I first learned about the Texas Tornados (and whatever happened to Freddy Fender) when I was living on a little island in the Pacific Ocean and there wasn't much else to do after work but go to the bar, drink beer and listen to good music. The Texas Tornados were frequently playing, the louder the better. This album truly is a "best." "Who were you thinkin' of" and "Adios Mexico" are better than the Spanish versions. The only song that should have been on this album and is not is "She never spoke Spanish to me." This album brings wonderful memories of a not so distant past.

Like fun music? Have ecletic tastes? Like to sing along in the car by yourself? Order this baby and enjoy. Different styles amongst the four tornados make this a surprising listen, if not totally cohesive. Who cares! Have "una cerveza", enjoy, and then go buy more of their cd's.

In light of the fact that Doug Sahm is no longer with us, couldn't we have a revised "Best of.." to include "A Little Bit is Better Than Nada"? Also there are a few of my secondary favorites missing. Texas Tornados were the greatest Tex Mex band ever. There are bands with less, but more songs on their best of CDs.

The Tornados are GREAT. Treasure this CD, most likely it is the last of them all together with Flaco Himenez. Fabulous Tex-Mex.

The Texas Tornados are a well blended mix Tejano music with an American twist. Good music to play at a bbq while drinking some cervesas.

Great CD w/ all the hits. It's wonderful when "legends" come together to combine their talent.

I miss Freddy.
