3AM Eternal: Asleep At The Wheel Remembers The Alamo (2003)

Today marks the 189th anniversary of the fall of the Alamo mission in San Antonio. Hundreds of men lost their lives fighting off a Mexican army infinitely larger than their small band, and that they held off their enemy for thirteen days, well, that’s a legacy that will live forever. What better way to honor those brave men than by listening to Dallas-based swing band Asleep At The Wheel’s 2003 album, a conceptual tribute to the battle. Featuring several of the band’s older numbers, new versions of traditional folk songs about the Alamo, and with a handful of guest stars, this record is, from start to finish, a wonderful collection of music about and related to one of the great moments in Texas history.
