Editors’ Notes

Though they existed for only a brief period of time, the Texas Tornados produced a remarkable number of classics. Doug Sahm was the group’s fire, providing their two biggest “hits” — “Who Were You Thinkin’ Of” and “Adios Mexico,” both of which were authentic downhome rock songs at a time when the rest of the world was preoccupied with U2 and Guns N’ Roses. The most remarkable thing about the Tornados — besides their faithful and full-bodied representation of South Texas culture — was that they were a truly democratic supergroup. Despite Sahm’s obvious star power, no man stands above the others, and Freddy Fender, Augie Meyers and Flaco Jimenez all took turns as leader, each bringing essential songs to the group’s repertoire. While some wrote them off as a gimmick, they were an incredibly soulful group, driven more by friendship and Texas pride than money. Hence The Best of Texas Tornados should not be considered an afterthought to the careers of the four participants, but rather a joyful culmination.
