Hound Dog Man

by The Rubberband

Southern Band from the 70's with International Flavour. Said to be ahead of it's time & a clone of nobody. Truly original & perhaps a candidate for that 'missing link' in Southern Rock history. Songs vary with the writer's imagination. Sax work excels.
Genre: Rock: Southern Rock

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Title song was covered as a tribute song to Elvis by several known artists of the day, including Gen Campbell, Roy Orbison & Lenny LeBlanc. The Rubberband & Lenny LeBlanc cuts were done in 1975 & re-released in 1977 as singles when Elvis died. The Rubberband(tm) has a long recording history & this album represents an era which included live performing versions of the band as heard on "Hound Dog Man" & "Armageddon Run". Some well known regional players such as Tippy Armstrong & Bill Connell are heard on several cuts. Armstrong played the bass, mandolin & an aluminum advertising sign as a percussion instrument on "In Like Flynn". The alto sax solos & some of the guitar & bass work have been notable to many. The style varies greatly as intended on the project & it's worth the listen. This band always strived for originality & not to be classified. After all these years, we think this album did just that. Anecdote: en route to one of the sessions for this album, Tippy Armstrong, guitarist & friend rode with me in my Camaro & said he had pondered what kind of music we were doing - he deemed it to be "English 'Truck Driving Music" & we both laughed. He said it was a compliment in that it was a style of it's own & he wished the songs he was working on had a unique style like that. This has been a fond memory to me. Tippy was not only a fine musician but a dear friend to many of us & I'd like to make this re-release of Hound Dog Man a tribute to his memory. Tommy Stuart
