Doug Sahm first used the name "Texas Tornado" in 1973, writing a song and naming an album after it. He first used it for a band in 1976, crediting Texas Rock for Country Rollers to Sir Doug & the Texas Tornados but the Texas Tornados didn't really become a group until 1990, when Sahm formed the Tex-Mex all-stars with his idol Freddy Fender, his right-hand man Augie Meyers, and Flaco Jiménez. Their first album released in two versions, one in English and one in Spanish caused a roots rock sensation upon its release, winning a Grammy for Best Mexican American/Tejano Performance for its track "Soy de San Luis" and helping to establish the band as a brand. Three albums followed quickly over the next six years the last, 4 Aces, appeared after a rush-released 1994 compilation The Best of Texas Tornados then the band faded away, turning into a touring concern and then an everlasting tribute to Sahm and Fender once those two giants passed away.

Similar to his first Shelter outing (Getting Ready), but with more of a rock feel. That's due as much to the material as the production. Besides covering tunes by Jimmy Rogers, Howlin' Wolf, and Elmore James, King tackles compositions by Leon Russell and, more unexpectedly, Bill Withers, Isaac Hayes-David Porter, and John Fogerty (whose "Lodi" is reworked into "Lowdown in Lodi"). King's own pen remained virtually in retirement, as he wrote only one of the album's tracks.
