Welcome to the expanded edition of the show! Featuring an extra hour's worth of music not included in the radio version! This week we're featuring a slice of Texas dancehall music at it's best from Johnny Bush & The Bandoleros: "Live! At Dance Town USA" (1979). Recorded on New Years Eve 1979 (a Monday night) home town boy Johnny Bush brought his tight Texas country dance band back to Houston's Dance Town USA, a cavernous venue on the north side of town which he'd been a popular draw at for most of the 70s. Twin fiddles from Jimmy Harriss and John Schattenberg and steel from longtime Bandolero Rick Price lead the way through a dynamite hour-long set, whittled down by producers from the standard four hour show. "Whiskey River" was already a signature song for Bush by '79, and included are two-step-ready crowd favourites to this day: "Undo The Right" and "What A Way To Live", along with an ever relevant dig at mainstream country radio with "The Last Country Song". We dig into some fascinating, behind-the-scenes stories from the recording of this album and we'll also seek to recreate the sounds of a greater South Texas honky tonk circa 1979 in the process.
