Album Review

Predictably, this debut album by a sort of Tex-Mex Traveling Wilburys is a delight. Forty percent of the Sir Douglas Quintet — Doug Sahm and Augie Meyers — is represented, along with Freddy Fender and accordionist Flaco Jimenez.

(The track "Soy de San Luis" won the 1990 Grammy Award for Best Mexican/American Performance.)
