The Burbank Philharmonic

Um, so, session musicians? Brief Dixieland popularity uptick? Perhaps only these two conditions, plus the existence of Los Angeles, were necessary in order that America should have produced this LP in 1970. This rush of blood to the head is all Dixie arrangements of pop tunes: just one of three known LPs from the Bravo label, which was active from 1968-1970. A Snuff Garret production, with liner notes by Gary "Pawned Tonsils" Owens. Don't miss "These Boots Are Made for Walking", which demonstrates the fact that they had a contrabass saxophone, and YOU DO NOT.
