Share Article

Tex-centric label Palo Duro Records today re-launches with a new name its chart-climbing live recording of Texas music from a tiny Texas town, LUCKENBACH! COMPADRES! (SONGS OF LUCKENBACH TEXAS). The CD is expected to return to retail shelves in the next several weeks.



Up Against the Wall (Redneck Mother)

    The album's name change, from VIVA! TERLINGUA! NUEVO! released by Palo Duro Records in October 2006, is the result of the resolution of a lawsuit filed by Jerry Jeff Walker dba Groper Music against Palo Duro Records. The renamed LUCKENBACH! COMPADRES! will return to retail stores in the next several weeks and will be available through all online music services including iTunes, Sony Connect, Napster and Rhapsody.

Over two nights in January 2006, Palo Duro Records and the Town of Luckenbach celebrated Luckenbach's musical history by recording live performances of 14 songs from an era that inspired musicians, songwriters and storytellers such as Gary P. Nunn, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Guy Clark, Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings, whose "Luckenbach Texas (Back to the Basics of Love)" touched millions of people around the world.

Texas artists performing "Up Against the Wall (Redneck Mother)," "London Homesick Blues," "Sangria Wine," "Gettin' By," "What I Like About Texas," "Desperados Waiting for a Train" and more were Jimmy LaFave, Cory Morrow, john Arthur martinez, Gary P. Nunn, Two Tons of Steel, Ed Burleson, Brian Burns, The McKay Brothers, Morrison-Williams, Walt Wilkins, Tommy Alverson, The Derailers and members of the original Lost Gonzo Band.

LUCKENBACH! COMPADRES!, co-produced by Walt Wilkins and Tommy Alverson, is the first release in the Palo Duro Records Luckenbach Texas Music Series. Additional live recordings at the historical venue are planned, with the second installment to be announced in the next several weeks.

The mission of Palo Duro Records ("Country Music, Texas Spirit") is to release the best of Texas-made music in a way that reflects the authenticity of its artists. The label is also home to the notable brands Shiner Records, Luckenbach Texas, and the Texas Unplugged Music Series.
