Burnside Album Details
Krc, Freddie Steady, Tucson
It’s a tale of tragedy, heartbreak, desperation, love, and pursuit of the American dream, set in a time when that dream was everything. In the wild west of America in the mid-19th century, dreams were pursued, fulfilled, dashed, and altered. But always pursued. It’s how the country found its destiny gradually from the east coast to the west. From the mind of Texas Music Hall of Famer Freddie Steady Krc (rhymes with church) comes Tucson, a love story set in the wild country of the developing west. The story of a cowboy named Sonny and his undying love for Kara Lee in the face of danger began as a concept album originally recorded by Krc’s Shakin’ Apostles in the 1990s. The entire piece is now revived as a narrated theatrical performance, so it’s time to make the original classic recording available again, now with bonus songs that also appear in the live performance.
