This is my all time favorite "cheer-me-up" album. As soon as the music starts, I just start smiling. I love the enthusiasm and the great talent that is displayed. The mingling of voices from both north and south of the border is a tribute to our southern society, showing that we all can and do get along wonderfully when we put our minds to it.

If you haven't heard the music of the Texas Tornados before, and enjoy lively music that blends rock, country, and Latin (conjunto) styles, this is a MUST listen. Unlike the "Best of" Texas Tornados CD that skimps on the offerings, you get LOTS of music on this disc, over 70 minutes of joyous bilingual tunes that will put a smile on your face and quite possibly cause you to dance around the room. This is primo Texas party music and it's quite addictive. It's not only Texas Tornado originals that get played here, but also some "greatest hits" from individual members such as Freddy Fender (he does "Wasted Days and Wasted Nights" and "Before the Next Teardrop Falls") and Doug Sahm (some great tunes from his Sir Douglas Quintet days such as "She's About a Mover"). Sadly, both of those great artists have passed away since this performance. The disc also includes a lively cover of "96 Tears", the Jimmy Reed blues romp "Baby What you Want me to Do," and the lovely Butch Hancock tune "She Never Spoke Spanish to Me." And as usual, one of the highlights of the Texas Tornados is the exuberent accordian playing of Flaco Jimenez. Such joy! Nobody does it better. If you've enjoyed anything by this band, or the individual members, in the past, don't miss this mighty fine live recording.

I already wrote a review on this incredible musical event after watching

the show on DVD so my opinion on the CD version cannot be different.

The only sad thing about this is that both Doug and Freddy are not with

us anymore but we have their wonderful 1990 Austin Texas concert and

we can either listen to it or watch the incredible musical abilities

of this foursome. The best Conjunto Tex-Mex rock & roll gathering ever!!!

Tex-Mex supergroup The Texas Tornados played rock n' roll, R&B, Mexican folk, swing, boogie, ballads, and smaltzy country weepers with the same enthusiasm.
They were a brand new band when this 1990 session was recorded, a part of the PBS music series Austin City Limits, and they swing their way through a 74-minute set of Tornados tunes and songs from the back catalogues of the various members: "Sir Douglas", the great Doug Sahm, Augie Meyers, Flaco Jimenez, and Baldemar Huerta - better known as Freddy Fender.

Backed by an additional fine musicians, the Tornados happily serve up their unique Tex-Mex dish, from the country ballad "Larado Rose" and Doug Sahm's joyous late-60s pop-rocker "Mendocino", to a pretty convincing cover of bluesman Jimmy Reed's (always erroneously titled) "Baby What You Want Me To Do". He sang "baby, why you wanna let go", Jimmy did.
The four musicians mostly take turns performing the lead vocals; sometimes two or three singers will create an impromptu vocal harmony. The band is tight, even if the overall sonic image is perhaps a bit too unvaried, always dominated by either Jimenez' accordion or Augie Meyers' Vox organ. And you can tell that everybody on that night was enjoying themselves, the band included. They swing mightily on "Wasted Days And Wasted Nights", sung in a fragile tenor by Freddy Fender and on the rollicking "Who Were You Thinkin' Of", the old Sir Douglas Quintet-number which had been resurrected on their debut album, released only a few months earlier. We get a joyous rendition of "the San Antonio national anthem", as announced by Augie Meyers, the half-English, half-Spanish "Hey Baby Que Paso".

This is a good live recording especially with Freddy Fender. I grew up in the 60's listening to the 60's rock and the song She's About A Mover was 1 of my favorite songs back then and that was the origional recording. I like the live recording better the way they did it on this cd as well as all the other songs. I always said if you love music you have ta repect all kinds and their is a lot of good tunes out their ta hear.

I love these guys and have for years back when Doug and Freddie were alive. I've had a lot of fun the assorted times I've seen them live. Makes me laugh just to think which is why when I put one of their CD's on, the music inevitably both takes my heart back and keeps my feet a dancing right here, right now. I don't know why but this particular CD just didn't do it for me. To me it was too cryin' and dyin' - all Texas, no tornado. Then again, maybe some day I'll pull it off the shelf and go "Wow. I forgot I had this. This is great." For now, not so. Sorry.

What do you get when you put these tremendous musicians together ? The Texas Tornados, of course. And this collection is wonderful as it gives you all the best tunes from the Sir Douglas Quintet, as well as Freddy Fender's biggest hits and great tunes from Flaco Jimenez. Quality is terrific. It is in the regular rotation at my house !!! It's About a Mover .....
