A Brief Return to Texas.......

Was looking through some stuff and remembered that I had these too, the pretty good three disc "Fort
Worth Teen Scene", which, of course (considering all the Texas stuff I've thrown at ya) does contain some overlap, but they are packed, 24-25 tracks each disc, and there are plenty of unique tracks to this set.

Disc 1 is notable because it contains the lesser-comped version of Larry and the Blue Notes "Night of the Sadist" (usually comped is "Night of the Phantom"). The Tracers cover that little-known chestnut, "Gloria", we get two tracks from The Elite entitled (I could not make this up) "One Potato" and "Two Potato"......Chocolate Moose is a fairly good psych band that doesn't turn up on these comps too often.....lot of the regualrs, too, the Barons, The Bards, Nomads, etc, but a good disc and a good set.

The second disc contains "Night of the Phantom" (the more common one), Jack & the Rippers turn in a very cool "Jack th Ripper", the Cynics give us a good take on the Yardbirds "Mister You're a Better Man Than I", again, a lot of the "regulars" turn up here, but this is quite a good, and quite a comprehensive set (remember the set focuses on Fort Worth and not Texas as a whole).

Final disc gives us some new blood as well, Trycerz, Gentlemen, Fearsome Five, lots of repeat acts from the earlier discs, highlighted again by Larry & the Blue Notes "Train Kept a Rollin". The Hi-Lights give us a version of "Little Latin Lupe Lu"which makes for a comparison with the Rising Sun's version on disc one.

All in all a really good set, kind of wish I'd put it up a little earlier in case there's any anti-Texas
backlash creeping in (I have no evidence of it yet).....anyway I THINK that wraps up my Lone Star State stuff, some Arizona yesterday.....I know I have some New Mexico stuff too, we'll see, it might be time to move North......or East......or soemthing.......,and remember if you'd like me to attempt to comp YOUR city/state whatever, there's a fair chance I might be able to, or if YOU have a stack o discs from a certain region in which I might be a lacking, contact me and maybe we can tackle another corner of the USA!

Hope everyone has a super week!
