¡Está Bueno! Track Listing

¡Está Bueno! Notes

The ultimate Tex-Mex super group is back - Augie Meyers and Flaco Jiménez reunite with the son of Doug Sahm, Shawn Sahm in a new recording that includes five previously unreleased vocal performances from the legendary Freddy Fender. The collection, entitled "Esta Bueno," includes new songs written by Fender such as the swamp pop ballad "If I Could Only," an instant new Tornados-style classic written by Doug and Shawn Sahm "Who's to Blame, Señorita?" and several Augie Meyers songs recorded for the first time by the Tornados, such as "Velma from Selma" and "My Sugar Blue." The album was produced by Shawn Sahm and will be released nationally by Ray Benson's Bismeaux Records.

Playing together again for the first time since the ‘90s and feeling what Shawn calls "the Tornado vibe," the group enlisted Shawn to take over and "drive the bus" for their first album in over a decade. His goal for the record was "to keep it a straight up Tex-Mex rock and roll record." When they first began recording, Shawn was very pleased but not surprised to hear them "sounding like they are playing at the top of their game." He states, "When you hear this record, you hear why they are the legends they are."

Shawn Sahm has been around the music since he was 13 and was the perfect person to entrust with preserving the Tornado's legacy. He fine-tuned each track according to the group's feedback giving each detail serious attention. Throughout the process, he insisted to all of them, "It is not done until you are happy."
