ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hello out there in cyberland! Georgie Star here with my instrumental music Ep. I have two other offerings, the "Labor Hall" Cd and the "Country Sun Songs" Ep that I produced and recorded with my long-time friend Mark Plummer. I hope you enjoy the instrumentals. They were written and are being shopped around for movie soundtracks and television. In fact, all of the music I have written is available for commercial licensing. Just google Georgie Star or visit my website at Eclipse of Austin Productions and you will find out all the different ways to do that. Enough of that stuff, here is my bio:

I have been an Austin musician since 1966. I started my first band when I was 14 years old. We were called The Galaxies. We played at the Zilker Hillside Theater Talent Show and won in the vocal group category. The song we won with was terrible, one that my brother and I wrote, but the harmonies were pretty good! We entered a talent show at Leander High School and won for best band. We performed at Hancock Shopping Center and with the checks and gift certificates we received, our moms made our band outfits (see the enclosed picture).

When I got older (16), I worked at Kentucky Fried Chicken (now a bike shop next to the Jack-in-the-Box on S. Lamar and Barton Springs Rd.), and I took the left- over chicken and put it in a bucket and ventured over to the Vulcan Gas Company (a San Francisco-type psychedelic-style night club at 316 Congress Avenue) and got in for free. The owners of that club opened the Armadillo World Headquarters where I played in the beer garden because I placed in a songwriters’ competition (but I am getting ahead of myself). Back at the Vulcan, I used to go and watch Johnny Winter perform with Papa Red Turner, and Spencer Perskin of the Shiva’s Head Band, the Conqueroo, the Bubble Puppy, and so on.

I met Mark Plummer, and he and I began writing songs with Ricky Cox. We called ourselves Country Sun. I played acoustic, and Rick played acoustic and electric. We added George Nichol on the upright and electric bass. We also incorporated our friend Pat McKern on acoustic and vocals. Pat had been the lead singer for Shepherd’s Bush (who won the Austin Aqua Festival Battle of the Bands in 1970 at the Palmer Auditorium), and we would borrow their drummer, Keith Newberry, for studio sessions. Their lead guitarist, John Staehely went on to play with Spirit, Jo Jo Gunne, Krackerjack, Robert Palmer, and Bob Dylan’s Never Ending Band. We started working on an album at General Audio Studios on West 6th street with Stephen Shields. He produced Christopher Cross’ first album, and it went platinum. The studio eventually became Pecan Street Studios. We were the first band to record there. We were doing gigs at Le Potpourri Café (now called the Cactus Café), the One Knite Club (now called Stubb’s) at 801 Red River, and the Hill on the Moon concerts at City Park and Lake Austin, produced by Hill on the Moon Productions. I also played with the band Livid Blue with Lawrence Vegas and Blind George McClain. Lawrence and I were playing at several high school assemblies to raise money for scholar-ships. Lawrence’s family owned Tony’s Tortillas, and we practiced in the warehouse which is now the Dell’s Children’s Museum. Anyway, girlfriends got involved, the bands broke up, and I spent the next six years in the Air Force. While I was enlisted, I played at the Officer and NCO clubs at Reese AFB, doing a solo thing on the weekends and opening up for the bands .

Let's get to the '80s. I did a duo with Michael Harkins, and we performed at the original Maggie Mae’s. Their venue was strictly Irish folk music, so we went in under the guise of The British Invasion and added electric guitar, harmonica and bass to the ensemble (in other words, we were the first rockers to play at Maggie Mae‘s). We became a band called The Lawn Boys, and were very happy when we got one of my songs, “#2“, aired on rotation at KTXZ radio. Mike and I had the distinction of closing down Ed's Aloe Vera Bar, now the Black Cat on 6th St., as we were the last act to perform at Ed‘s bar. The band played at Soap Creek Saloon when Ed started managing the venue. Augie Myers wanted us to open for his band, but Ed said no. Dang it! The band split up, and the bass player, the late David Roe, and I formed as a duo and were playing places like Trudy's Texas Star Cafe, Michael-Michaels, The Austin Outhouse, and Life is a Beach. We were the last performers to play at the Alamo Bar and Grill before they tore it down (The Alamo Hotel). I had a song, "Put the world on Hold", which was being played on KHFI radio and sold all the copies I placed anywhere I could (you know, single 45's), including Inner Sanctum Records. David and I performed on the live radio show at the Austin Opera House with Steven Fromholz.

I moved to Las Vegas with David Roe, and I played in bands in Nevada, Oregon, California and Arizona. I formed the Georgie Star Band and played at casinos in Las Vegas, Henderson, and Stateline, NV.

In 1999 I recorded my first solo CD, “Labor Hall”. There are 12 songs, and I did all of the tracks (there is no band). It was recorded at Austin Audio Arts on South Congress (formerly next door to the Continental Club). I thought it to be a good effort. My music is kind of like the Beatles, the Byrds, Paul Simon and Bob Dylan all rolled together to create the Georgie Star sound. It’s rock-oriented with many love ballads, a little bit of blues and country.

I am rather retired from performing these day (but I could be talked into a big concert opportunity). I spend my days writting and recording at my studio, Eclipse of Ausin Productions. Enjoy the music, there will be more to come in the near future!
