Freddy Fender's embrace of less traditional border music led to one of country and pop's most unlikely comebacks in the mid 1970s. Culled from live shows during that period, this collection finds Fender's years on the roadhouse circuit paying off: he knows how to move a crowd. Fender proves himself the consummate entertainer, throwing himself into raved-up renditions of Willie Nelson's "Whiskey River" and his own classic "Wasted Days and Wasted Nights." His band crackles with energy and expertise, and could easily compete with Elvis Presley's much vaunted '70s line-up as that era's most fun evening out.
