AllMusic Review by

Swingin' from the Fabulous Satellite is a blustery, exuberant offering from one of Houston's most generous live acts. This 73-minute outing was recorded on a single night at the popular Bayou City haunt, and it's refreshingly free of the slightest post-performance doctoring -- as if this veteran blues-rock trio needed studio overdubs. It's always been singer/guitarist Hadden Sayers' tighter originals that shined the brightest on-stage, and here they're delivered with an exceptional looseness-to-restraint ratio. And the packed house responds with all the enthusiasm you'd expect from a crowd that knows how to show its appreciation for tightly rendered, road-hardened Texas fare.
