Ten Years After (with Alvin Lee) had the advantage of being showcased at Woodstock, the most famous rock festival ever (see yesterday’s post for the video). That exposure launched their career into the stratosphere. While their success was well deserved, I doubt any of us would remember them today if it wasn’t for Woodstock.
I bring this up because there are a lot of groups that are extremely talented but never break into the big time because they don’t manage to get the exposure that they deserve. Brothers and Sisters out of Austin, Texas is one of those bands. I stumbled onto their music about five years ago and fell in love with it.
Take a look at their website, http://www.thebrothersandsisters.com, for some good background information about the band.
Let me share a couple of songs from their first album….
Unfortunately the group appears to have faded away. I have been unable to find any new music from them beyond the two albums that they produced (Brothers and Sisters and Fortuneately) both of which are available for purchase on their website.
SOMETIMES TALENT IS JUST NOT ENOUGH……..
