From a trade review: "Aerosmith's spectacular 'Permanent Vacation' comeback began with their blistering set at the 1987 Texxas Jam, so a concert video of the band's 1978 performance there seems only appropriate. It also seems to be yet another case of Aerosmith's ex -label capitalizing on its former signees' current success. 'Texxas Jam' follows two fairly recent greatest-hits live albums, 'Classics Live I' and 'Classics Live II,' and another longform video of early concert clips, 'Aerosmith Video Scrapbook' (which has five songs in common with the current one). 'Scrapbook,' however, relied primarily on backstage footage as its between-song filler, while 'Texxas' utilizes your basic stadium shots (roadies at work, aerial pans of the crowd, fans rocking out, etc.). Perhaps coincidentally, it competes with a video of newer material, 'Aerosmith 3x5,' from the band's current label, Geffen" (Billboard, 6/17/89).
