by Red Willow Band

The legendary country swing band from South Dakota pops the cork on live performances from the past. Rich with fiddles, guitars, harmonies, honky-tonk piano, and 70's festival enthusiasm. If you were at Nemo, you need this CD.

Album Notes
Chris Gage, Hank Harris, Kenny Putnam, Marley Forman, and Barry Carpenter; The Red Willow Band - existed in South Dakota from 1974 to 1982. Their business card read "Red Willow Band.....the best in country swing". Two albums and several singles were recorded and released, with one single "I Wish I Had Your Arms Around Me" reaching #97 on the Billboard Hot Country 100 charts for a whopping 7 days. The band made numerous TV specials for South Dakota Public Television, hosted the successful NEMO series of outdoor festivals, and toured nonstop in the upper U.S. from Washington State to New York City.

The band reunited in 2004 for a 3 concert tour of South Dakota.

I liked this album. Describing it is another matter. If this were a rock album, I'd describe Red Willow as a garage band (in the best sense of the word). The sound is okay but not great, the repertoire seems to me to be as much rock as western swing, and the vocals are not overwhelming, but there is an electricity to their performances that overshadows any imperfections - I'd bet that they were fun to see live. Next time I place an order with CD BABY, I'll be ordeing their other CD
