The Fabulous Thunderbirds: Blues Breaker

The Fabulous Thunderbirds first swooped into the Austin blues scene back in the nineteen seventies. They were a big frog in that pond for years. Musicians’ musicians… they opened for all the big blues stars, but never caught a break themselves. Then they released a song and album called “Tuff Enuff.” “Tuff Enuff” was featured in not one but two movies, and became a top ten hit.  It’s the only monster hit they had, but it was tuff enuff to put the T-Birds on the map. The band has gone through various line-ups over the years, but it’s still fronted by singer and harpman, Kim Wilson, and the band is still bringing us killer blues, like this little number. The Fabulous Thunderbirds and “Smooth.”
