THE TOADIES: "Summer of the Strange", "I Burn", "Rattler's Revival" & "Possum Kingdom (live)"




***** THETOADIES.COM



This posting another past due for this journal's music/ arts honour roll society has to go to The Toadies out of Dallas- Fort Worth. Talking about local band's the other day in some small chat, a buddy Dave who is a guitarist asked me if the Toadies were still around? ... Yes ... Absolutely! ... and what an outstanding crew these guyz are musically, they have such a distinctive sound that really is great across the board as far as that alternative touch to rock and even a touch of other genre's, just a really good sound "live" especially, as far as their theme or whatever ... I'll let the above link's get into that. They did break up, or let's just say took a long break (which is alwayz healthy too in this business) for a few year's then got another kickstart to boot up and really some nice work. I also had the opportunity to meet this crew and seen several performances of theirz at local joint's over the year's. There were several pieces I wanted to include here, but went with 4 that I selected for this posting, some more recent and some older tunes ... with a really nice horn's section addition on "Rattler's Revival" featuring "The Honeybear Horns", then a reunion show they done live in the late summer of 2008 of their "Possum Kingdom" classic most fitting on the shores of beautiful "Possum Kingdom Lake" on the Fort Worth side of town. And Thanx for all the great stuff Guyz ... ya'll kick ass ... Enjoy!
