Format: Audio CD
In the late `70s and early `80s the next generation of blues greats were starting to bloom in Austin, Texas. One of the first bands to explode onto the scene was The Fabulous Thunderbirds. An all-star band comprised of guitarist Jimmie Vaughan, singer and harp player Kim Wilson, bassist Preston Hubbard, and drummer Fran Christina they would begin paving the way for more Texas blues bands to follow. This album covers five years of music, covering four studio releases.
This is just an all around good album. The songs all have a good rhythm to them with catchy lyrics. "Tuff Enough" and "Powerful Stuff" are the overly popular selections on the album. "Rock this Place" and "Wrap It Up" are two of the best cuts off the album. The only track that I didn't care for was "Why Get Up". In 1990, Jimmie left the band after the untimely death of his brother. "Twist of the Knife" is the only Jimmie-less cut that appears on this album, and his replacement does a very good job of impersonating him.
Jimmie doesn't get the credit for being the great guitarist that he so well deserves. Playing in the shadow of his brother (although Stevie felt that it was the other way around), he has been thought of as simplistic and dull. Carefully listen to the ten tracks that he does on this album. His less-is-more approach to playing fits the music, and doesn't distract from the song. He can be fast and flashy when he wants to, but has found a voice of his own. Listen to his "Powerful Stuff" solo and tell me that he's simple and boring. A solid guitarist indeed.
This eleven-track greatest hits album provides a healthy sampling of the three real Fabulous Thunderbirds albums (the ones with Jimmie). Definitely worth listening to if you're a fan of the Texas sound.

This is a superb selection of early to more recent T-bird music. "Hot Stuff" represents the raw soulful music of the thunderbirds and reinforces the song writing talents of Kim Wilson.And of course if you don't already know, his stature as one of the best if not the best harp player alive is most apparent.Don't miss out on those raw guitar licks on "Tiger Man" with vocals to knock your socks off!This is a must for T-bird fans or any blues fan for that matter.

The Fabulous Thunderbirds - Hot Stuff: The Greatest Hits is correctly named in that these are indeed the biggest hits in the T-Birds long and storied career. This single CD package certainly could not be called "Best Of..." or it would have to encompass at least 6 CD's of music and a 40 page career retrospection booklet! So, instead we get the most popular and best known tracks for the budget-minded consumer. "Tuff Enuff" is basically the better-known rewrite of that all-time classic from their club days, "She's Tuff," but it's such a great number that it's good the second time around as well. "Wrap it Up" features a wonderful keyboard hook and would do Sam and Dave proud, while "Why Get Up" (featuring snoring sound effects) is absolutely hilarious; one of the TBirds best comic numbers. "Powerful Stuff" features bass player Preston Hubbard's powerful hook, while the entire band (Jimmie Vaughn, guitar, Kim Wilson, vocals and harp, and Fran Cristina, drums) really rocks out on "Rock This Place"; Jimmie's mega-riff guitar work is especially good here. Of course, with a band as good as the TBirds, several tracks are conspicuously absent, most notably "She's Tuff" "Jumpin Bad" "You Ain't Nothin' But Fine" "Scratch My Back" "Tear It Up" and "Gotta Have Some/Just Got Some". (Some of these gems are available on Tacos Deluxe, the new compilation of early Birds classics.) Even so, this is still a good place to start your TBirds collection; there may be only eleven tracks of the two dozen or more than could be called the best of The Fabulous Thunderbirds, but rest assured, this is some powerful stuff!!!

I ordered this for my husband after I lost his. He was delighted to have it back. (Several months after ordering this, we finally found the original one). But service was quick and it was brand new, still sealed and played perfectly. Classic rock that still makes you feel good!

THE FABULOUS THUNDERBIRDS-HOT STUFF/THE GREATEST HITS: Even though they'd been an important cog on the Texas blooze circuit since the early seventies, Austin's FABULOUS THUNDERBIRDS didn't really hit paydirt till 1986 via their DAVE EDMUNDS-produced breakthrough platter TUFF ENOUGH, from which the rambunctious title cut and SAM & DAVE-associated followup WRAP IT UP became welcome radio mainstays. Led by soulful belter/hot harp blower KIM WILSON and delectable six string slinger JIMMIE VAUGHAN (SRV's older bro), their no frills mix of roadhouse rock and southern soul punctuated rootsy covers of SLIM HARPO's GOT LOVE IF YOU WANT IT and the WILLIE DIXON penned warhorse YOU CAN'T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER, along with WILSON's staunch declaration STAND BACK and the chill out groover TWO TIME MY LOVIN'. Even though the band's earlier series of albums (which most older fans actually prefer) should not be discounted, HOT STUFF, which covers THE FAB T-BIRDS' (and modern blues-rock's) peak of popularity years, is a slick, stand alone Saturday night special.

RATING: FOUR FABS
