Wooden Nickel

In the 1970s era of country rock, the Texas Re-Cord Company stood out from the crowd. It was a time when country music and blues and redneck rock all collided with west-coast hippie-ness. But the TRC was based in Bulverde near San Antonio, where Augie Meyers' Western Head Band added a good dose of Tex-Mex dance hall music and western-swing polka to the mix. Meyers was, and is, a lanky, bearded, laid-back character with a waist-length pigtail and a reputation in San Antone music that's longer even than that. Meyers' Texas Re-Cord label issued some thirty singles and seven albums between 1975 and 1980, and much of the music has not been reissued since. This 26 track CD puts that right. The Texas Re-Cord Co. Is 'finally in lights,' to quote one of their LP titles. Of the 26 tracks here, 17 are from rare 45 rpm singles and 9 are from albums.
