Texas Tornados ~ USA Television Appearances & Ads, 1990-1991-1992, original private pressing CDr, Not For Sale
This is like a Mini-Taco, maybe one of them "street tacos", fajitas or "carne guisada", it goes down very brief, but is very, very tasty! Great artwork & legwork on this one! Featuring left-over tracks from an Austin City Limits appearance by The Texas Tornados tearing down the place with a full version "La Bamba" (with rarely heard extra Spanish lyrics) + a suggested song "Viva Seguin" introduced by Freddy Fender, but when Flaco Jimenez goes on to explain when, where & why his father Santiago Jimenez wrote it, Flaco remembers something he doesn't like or wants re-telling, so he jumps into "Marina" (another song entirely) & plays that whole song. Also features Cheech Marin presenting an Award to Sam The Sham who jams into a rocking version of "Wooly Bully" backed by The Texas Tornados!
