Here it is: The only Austin City Limits program in over 30 years that has never aired on TV - anywhere. For that matter, it's never been seen anywhere, except by those lucky few who had access to a well-worn copy. Kinky Friedman and the Texas Jewboys. Long before the Kinkster became a celebrate mystery writer in New York City and way long before he bacame a candidate for Governer of the Great State of Texas, there was Kinky the 'country' music singer and songwriter of the mid-1970s. He was a paragon, a veritable pioneer of political incorrectness set to music, and there was nobody quite like him on the Austin music scene. There he was on Austin City Limits stage on November 11, 1975, in his finest rhinestone suit with fur-lined guitar strap, bounding through his entire catalogue of double-entendre ditties. The band never sound better. The audience loved every lyrically devilish twist. There was only one problem. They said it couldn't be aired. There's still some mystery about exactly who 'they' were who made the decision to pull the show. "They" said it was too offensive, but then Kinky has always been an equal-opportunity offender, showing no mercy to any gender, genre, religion or ethnicity. It took the age of the CD and the courage of New West to bring this treasure to you.
