ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is Abner Burnett in the '70s, after he had been exposed to Miles Davis, Spider John Koerner, Alexander Scriabin, and Townes Van Zandt.

There was a record made in 1975 called "Abner Burnett & the Burnouts Crash & Burn".

It was recorded at a small 16 track studio, Zaz, known for regional conjunto hits in San Antonio.

The personnel included a brilliant horn player who was also schizophrenic.He was often found at a street corner in downtown S.A. naked and preaching.

There was a fifteen year old drummer, the sister of Christopher Cross, and a slightly older classically trained bassist.

The bassist was unable at first to follow Mr. Burnett's directions regarding his part in "That's What You Get". A railbird dosed him heavily and repeatedly with mescaline, after which he managed his assignment with verve and vision.

In 1979, after spending several months hanging out with legendary cowboy singer Buck Ramsey, Abner Burnett recorded a second album, "Old McDonald", at a small studio in New Mexico.

It was done entirely acoustic on a 4-track machine.

The recording was interrupted for several months after Mr. Burnett suffered multiple injuries from a one car accident in Ft. Sumner, New Mexico, the town where Billy the Kid is presumably buried.

The accident occurred the same day that Elvis tumbled to his death from a toilet seat.
