down in austin
Just got back from first visit to Austin- Got a few 45s that really made it worthwhile-
Got to enjoy Polvos, Freddies, Continental Club, Stubb’s Gospel BBQ, and Hammond soul in the Continental Club’s gallery upstairs.
Dined wholesomely on hippystyle Mexican food at Mother’s and Mr. Natural- pure food that makes you feel good, and BBQ at Iron Works, floats, fries and shakes at Fran’s Drive In.
Featured beers were Lone Star, Pearl Light and Negro Modelo, and Heineken and Spaten in the studio (local produce was good too). We laid down several new rythms to tape over two evenings-
Finished mixes soon to be forthcoming-
Dropped by KOOP FM and appeared on Art Baker's show, and started each morning at Jo's right next to Austin Motel.
Here are some 45s found in Texas augmented by a couple of Ron Balls’ deadly 45s, and some Luther Johnson cuts that were done with Muddy Water’s Band.
Soulful blues and bluesy soul for together people-
Might be too funky forya-
