Red Voodoo is a Sammy Hagar and The Waboritas album. When Hagar finished touring in support of his Marching To Mars album, he recorded this record. Red Voodoo is really an extension of the party atmosphere that permeated Hagar'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 Hagar's other career endeavor, as his Cabo Wabo tequila was being distributed throughout the United States. The cover of this album even features a glass of Waborita that Hagar spent a portion of his concerts creating on stage during his last tour.

|Sammy Hagar chronology|
- "Mas Tequila" incorporates portions of the song "Rock and Roll (Part 2)" by Gary Glitter and also makes reference to the songs "Macarena" and "Funky Cold Medina".
- "The Love" is reworked from a song that was written and performed by HSAS 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. Hagar later played the song as a solo acoustic piece on a couple of dates on Van Halen's For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge tour.
- "Don't Fight It (Feel It)" was performed live by another of Hagar's bands, Los Tres Gusanos, before it was released on Red Voodoo.
