Product Description

From the vaults of the award-winning PBS Austin City Limits TV show, this is the latest release in the acclaimed Live From Austin, TX series.

Here it is: the only Austin City Limits program in over 30 years that has never aired on TV anywhere. For that matter, it s never even been seen anywhere, except by those lucky few who had access to a well-worn copy.

Kinky Friedman and The Texas Jewboys. Long before the Kinkster became a celebrated mystery writer in New York City, and waaay long before he became a candidate for Governor of the Great State of Texas, there was Kinky the country music singer and songwriter of the mid-1970 s. He was a paragon, a veritable pioneer of political incorrectness set to music, and there was nobody quite like him on the Austin music scene (or, for that matter, on the planet).

There he was on the Austin City Limits stage on November 11, 1975, in his finest rhinestone suit with fur-lined guitar strap, bounding through his entire catalogue of double-entendre ditties. The band never sounded better (nor looked, well, weirder). The audience loved every lyrically devilish twist. There was only one problem. They said it couldn t be aired. There s still some mystery about exactly who they were who made the decision to pull the show.

After watching this energetic set from Kinky Friedman and his band, you will fully understand why the folks at Austin City Limits chose not to broadcast it into the Great American Heartland. Not for the humor-impaired!

You probably already know that Kinky's LfA performance was never aired on tv,
deemed too risque or racist.
So it's out now, probably because Kinky's name is becoming more of a household word,
especially in Texas, since he's run for Governer twice, and lastly for Agricultural Commissioner.
Unfortunately, he lost all those elections.
But perhaps that will give him more time to write more novels!
LOVE his books!
The audience watching him is almost as interesting as his performance!
He's got some outstanding musicans playing with him.
This is a keeper - to watch once in a while for a Kink fix.

Kinky is the greatest living country and western writer. He wrote real songs before all of this commercial junk they push out now. Maybe Kinky could write some songs to save America from its self.
