Live in Texas and Japan

A great showcase for a band that deserves to be better known. If you saw The Buddy Holly Story and liked the sound that the Crickets made before they hit New York and the big-time, or wondered what country-rockers like Sid King or Tommy Hill would've sounded like on stage circa 1956, this is the record for you. There's not much audience in evidence in the Texas recordings, but it's still an exciting set -- the audience is enthusiastic but respectful, whereas the crowd at Diamond Hall in Nagoya, Japan, is almost boisterous, and the playing there does have a slightly higher energy level. The band closes with "Mona Lisa," one of a relative handful of '50s standards in their usual repertory -- most of the rest here are high quality originals by Menscher or Young.
