A spicy Tex-Mex quartet that fused Mexican polkas and folk music with '50s-style rock, doo wop and blues, the Texas Tornados consisted of four quite seasoned players. The most famous of the four,'70s country star Freddy Fender, is joined by Augie Meyers, a veteran of the Sir Douglas Quintet; Doug Sahm, with whom Meyers played in Doug Sahm & the Texas Tornados in 1974; and legendary southwestern accordion player Flaco Jimenez. During the '80s, the careers of the individuals seemed to languish, but after they formed the Texas Tornados in 1989, they finally regained fame and popularity. The band signed with Reprise Records in 1990 and released their self-titled debut album later that year. Produced by the band with Bill Halverson, the album available in both Spanish and English versions made the Top 25 on the country charts. Second album Zone of Our Own followed in 1991, and one year later the Texas Tornados recorded their last and best album, Hanging' on by a Thread. After the LP's release, the individual Tornados resumed their solo careers, but they reunited in 1996 for 4 Aces and in 1999 for Live From The Limo. Sandra Brennan All Music Guide
