Recorded live at Arizona Charlie's, Las Vegas, Nevada.
"Fat Boy Rag" was nominated for a 1998 Grammy Award for Best Country Instrumental Performance.
Recorded live at a nightclub called Arizona Charlie's in Las Vegas, Nevada, BACK TO THE FUTURE NOW is heavy on the western swing classics, as well as the special guest stars, including a bevy of former Wheelites--singer Chris O'Connell, pedal steel player Lucky Oceans and bassist Tony Gardner--and new country stars Tracy Byrd and the McGuire Sisters. The set list is typically eclectic, from western swing standards like Bob Wills' "Ida Red" and "Fat Boy Rag" or Fred Rose's "Roly Poly" to jazz favorites like "God Bless the Child" and "Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens" to originals like "The Letter That Johnny Walker Read."
The highlight is a scorching version of "Hot Rod Lincoln" by the group's old pal Commander Cody, but every song is tight, with that perfect balance of instrumental flash and good-natured musical passion. Bob Wills would be proud.
