Red Voodoo is a Sammy Hagar and The Waboritas album. When Sammy finished touring behind his Marching To Mars album, he took the band from that tour and recorded this record. Red Voodoo is really an extension of the party atmosphere that permeated throughout Sammy's concerts on that tour and this album has that whimsical party vibe. "Mas Tequila" was the lead single and it almost served as a commercial for Sammy's other career endeavor, as his Cabo Wabo Tequila was being distributed widespread throughout the United States. The cover of this album even features a glass of Waborita that Sammy spent a portion of his concerts creating on stage during his last tour.


Song information

  • "The Love" is reworked from a song that was written and performed by HSAS back in 1984. That song was called "Since You Came" and was not released on the Through The Fire album, but did appear on the MTV concert that the band performed on. Sammy later played the song as a solo acoustic piece on a couple of dates of Van Halen's For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge tour.
  • "Don't Fight It (Feel It)" was performed live by another of Sammy's bands, Los Tres Gusanos, before it was finally released on Red Voodoo.[2]
