Wow, this Austin City Limits show with the Texas Tornados brings back memories of the early-90s glory days of South By Southwest, when you could still see Doug Sahm trading licks and good-natured jabs with Freddy Fender, Flaco Jimenez and Augie Meyers in a club the size of your parents' rec room. The rip-snortin' performance documented here in 5.1 surround sound was originally broadcast on October 16, 1990, and captures the Tex-Mex supergroup at their rollicking best, long before the novelty of sharing the stage with longtime pals wore off. They tear through a 19-song set spiked with covers of Sir Doug crowd-pleasers like Mendocino and She's About A Mover and then smoothly change pace with Fender's soulful weepers Before The Next Teardrop Falls and Wasted Days And Wasted Nights. That the typically sedate Austin City Limits audience is dancing for the whole show says a lot. New West is also releasing similarly great shows by Dwight Yoakam (featuring Buck Owens) from 1988 and Johnny Cash from 87 (due out December 6) and mediocre ones from John Hiatt and Eric Johnson along with companion CD versions.
