Radio Birdman's Deniz Tek and Engineer/Producer Andy "Mort" Bradley have had a long and productive history working together in Houston's legendary SugarHill Studios.
Home to International Artist records, the 13th Floor Elevators, The Sir Douglas Quintet, Roy Head and countless others, SugarHill was central to the psychedelic scene that erupted in the sixties. Andy got an all star lineup together to record ripping new versions of these classic hits by Fever Tree and The Bubble Puppy.
The band features Houston singer Tomas Escalante on lead vocals, the late fretboard master Kenny Cordray and Deniz Tek on guitars, Rob Landes from the original Fever Tree on B3, and Mark Andes from Spirit on bass. Houston session luminaries keyboardist Paul English and drummers Tyson Sheth and Todd Harrison round out the lineup.
Stunning picture sleeve art by Sabrina Gabrielli evokes the spirit of the times. The single carries a dedication to Kenny Cordray. His sudden and tragic demise occurred right after his amazing work on these sessions, which were to be his last.
