Thanks for the link. I discovered the band when I stumbled on their album in a bargain bin in a second hand record store on Yonge Street in Toronto back around 1985. As a Doug Sahm fan, his production credit is what caught my attention, and I was not disappointed. The fact I can remember exactly where I discovered it gives you some idea of the impression it made.
