Finally available in Limited Tenth Anniversary Edition! The classic, out of print masterpiece of electric blues by award winning guitarist Nuno Mindelis--- Texas Bound. Nuno recorded Texas Bound in Austin backed by Stevie Ray Vaughanâ€™s Double Trouble, Chris Layton and Tommy Shannon. Blues giants Lou Ann Barton (vocals) and Steve James (dobro) pitch in, along with other special guests who made this hard to find historic recording.
Living Blues Magazine said the following about Texas Bound:
"A gifted guitarist, Mindelis knows the blues (check out his two Jimmy Reed covers) and keeps rock influences to a minimum, wweaving together multiple guitar lines and creating delicate harmonics on a cover of Jimi Hendrix's 'Castles Made of Sand' and crafting long, bluesy solos on the traditional 'Egyptian Priestess' and 'Blues for Antone's" (issue #135)
The CD is Nuno at his fiery best. From Nunoâ€™s own â€œHugsâ€ (covered worldwide), to the instrumental version of Hendrixâ€™s â€œCastles Made of Sand,â€ to other Blues classics, you will soon hear why this CD is the one that people have spent years searching for.
Here is a review by Bandit Blues Radio(http://www.banditbluesradio.com/), a leading Internet blues music broadcaster:
â€œClapton Who? Nuno Is The New Guitar God!
WOW! What a guitar player, do not hesitate to buy this CD in my opinion this is the best blues album since Stevie Ray Vaughan released Texas Flood, and Double Trouble plays on this one too. Nuno's version of Jimmy Reed's 'You Got Me Runnin' is just awesome. This Cat can just flat play that Strat!â€

Nuno's own life journey embodies the Blues. He was born in Angola, and started making guitars as a young child. His family was forced to flee the war in Angola, and for safety Nuno was sent to live apart from his family in Canada for several years. Continuing to refine his unique fingerstyle electric Blues technique, Nuno was finally reunited with his family in Brazil. Now renowned as one of the world's top Blues artists, Nuno has shared the stage with B.B. King, Jimmie Vaughan, Robert Cray, Otis Clay, and Junior Wells, among others. Nuno continues to play to enthusiastic audiences and critical acclaim worldwide.
