"In January of 1961 I recorded the album Eddie Con Los Shades under the name 'Eddie Medina.' I used that name because at that time I was still with Falcon Records under my real name, Baldemar Huerta. I chose Eddie Medina because my father's mother's last name was Medina. And Eddie, I just liked the name. The group was called 'The Shades' because whoever played with me, I just put sunglasses on them. We all wore shades." (F. Fender)

“Drawing as much from R&B as the rockabilly sounds that were still making the rounds in Texas at the time, Eddie con los Shades: Rock 'n Roll sounds a bit prescient of the garage rock sounds that would be all the rage three or four years down the line, though with less grit and a decided Latin undertow…there's a minimalist Carl Perkins-style attack in his sharp, meaty solos that sounds both tough and lithe…he was serious about his rock & roll, and served it up with style and passion.”
