Torn and Frayed Part 3

Countless bands worked the Southern California country-rock and rootsy folk circles in the mid to late 60s--many were prodigious in musical ability, but few were able to reach a wider audience. They had a love for traditional country music and history, but strove to work outside what at the time seemed like fairly rigid rules in contemporary country circles. Many groups worked around killer vocal harmonies. But Swampwater's were seriously soaring. They eventually became Linda Ronstadt's backing band, and key members went on to play with The Flying Burrito Brothers, etc. there are two Swampwater LPs, and they are killer--impassioned and lyrically grounded in Louisiana culture.
