3AM Eternal: Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson “Pancho & Lefty” (1982)

Two masterful country singers take one of the best songs by one of the best Texas singer-songwriters; a hit ensues.

3AM Eternal: Edith Frost “Evangeline” (1996)

A lovely little song from a psych-folk singer who shone briefly and then quietly slipped back into the ether.

3AM Eternal: Captain Audio “Driving, Riding” (1999)

The beginning stages (and brief beginning phase) of Secret Machines, this short-lived trio offered up some great psych-rock over the course of two records.

3AM Eternal: Fever Tree S/T (1968)

Houston’s Fever Tree released a very promising, exciting debut album, one that would influence another great album….

3AM Eternal: Spoon “Revenge!” (1997)

A crispy, crunchy little b-side from Austin’s Spoon. You might have missed this song. Rectify that, now.

3AM Eternal: Josefus: Dead Man (1970)

Spend some time with Houston’s Josefus. It’s primal heavy metal, unlike anything coming out of Texas in 1970. Still kicks ass 45 years later.

3AM Eternal: Washington Phillips “I Was Born To Preach The Gospel” (1927)

Though he left behind little over a dozen songs, mysterious gospel singer and preacher Washington Phillips’ music lives on today.

3AM Eternal: Stars Of The Lid Live In San Francisco (2008)

A sublime, deeply moving performance from Stars Of The Lid, one of the most beautiful experimental bands to come from Texas.

3AM Eternal: The Toadies “Possum Kingdom” (1994)

A twenty-year old song that has lost absolutely NONE of its power, from a band that’s still as red-hot as they were when they started.

3AM Eternal: Sir Douglas Quintet “She’s About A Mover” (1965)

A fine slab of garage rock/pseudo British Invasion pop, and the first hit for Texas legend Doug Sahm.
