The Derailers

Live! From Texas (Varèse Sarabande)

The Derailers hit a rough spot after co-founder/co-frontman Tony Villanueva left. The results: multiple lineup changes and a noticeable lack of direction. This live disc, recorded at both Dan's Silverleaf in Denton and Gruene Hall, proves the veteran locals still move a dance floor by marrying Buck Owens and the Beatles with dexterity. Everly Brothers and Wynn Stewart covers previously unrecorded by the Derailers sweeten the deal.
