5.0 out of 5 stars My introduction to the 'birds... 15 Oct 2004
By tgfabthunderbird - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This was my first Fabulous Thunderbirds record, which I bought in 85...I'd seen the 'birds and Stevie Ray Vaughan on an Austin City Limits show, and while I love SRV, the 'birds got me.

"Butt Rockin'" is one of the early, pre "Tuff Enuff" releases, and this one catches them at their best. Texas blues-rock, upbeat, and the band locked in beautifully.

Kim Wilson is a great harpist, but his voice handles the old stuff as well as the originals well. Jimmie Vaughan, well, what can you say...he put the guitar back in the band, keeping a strong rhythm and laying down some nice lead stuff when needed.

"I Believe I'm In Love," "One's Too Many" and "Matilda" are among the best cuts, but really all of them, even the bonus tracks are great.

This music is fantastic, and it's fun to say the title when people ask what you're listening to.

5.0 out of 5 stars your whole body will be rockin' 9 April 2008
By W. Landis - Published on
Format:Audio CD
the pure, crisp texas sound, the simplistic back beat and bass, jimmy vaughn on guitar and kim wilson playing the harp and providing the smooth vocals. fantastic. anson funderburgh slips in on guitar for a song, only makes it better.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Music 16 Dec 2012
By lrcvsc - Published on
I was introduced to the T-Birds in the early 80's while hitting the Greenville Bars in Dallas TX. I saw them perform, bought the album and have been a fan since. Thank you Amazon, it in now again part of my collection.
