All numbers are short rocky numbers with catchy tunes. Each track is great.
"Every woman I know, Crazy 'bout an automobile, and here I am standing with nothin' but rubber heels!" stands out.
After listening to "The Girls From Texas" you may take care to get involved with sweet Texan girls. All songs have a humorous side.
Buy, you will not be disappointed.
(Note that this has little to do with Buena Vista Social Club, which is a great album about Cuban music brought about by Ry Cooder)
"Down on The Boondocks" has a nice drifters Saturday night 50's feel to it.The Instrumental track "Borderline" is great - so VERY Ry Cooder - could have been used in a film soundtrack...
"Girls From Texas" is really funny - I smile every time I listen to it."Never Make Your Move too soon" has a great low down and dirty groove - pure R'n B (real R'n'B that is!). It is however tarnished by one of the worst recorded guitar sounds that Ry has ever committed to record - thin and tinny with absolutley no sustain.
This is the only drawback to the album. If only he had his suped up Stratocaster with the lap steel / teisco pickups when he recorded this. I'd give the album 6 stars then!
As with "Bop Till You Drop" , you will really hear Ry open up with his guitar playing on live versions of these songs... this album is still an essential Ry Codder purchase though...
