Fable Records (from Austin, Texas) had on their roster: 47 X It's Own Weight; Beto & The Fairlanes; Steamheat; Starcrost; Jazzmanian Devil; and a few others. In the late 1990s when we lived in Austin, I got to see Tomas Ramirez (AKA The Jazzmanian Devil) play "live" in a small hamburger joint on South Lamar with Tex Thomas & The Wranglin' Danglers (which included the world famous drummer Frosty from Lee Michaels, Sweathog, The Texas Mavericks, Soul Hat, and so many other great bands), and Tomas was playing saxophone and they did an Amazing(!) set! That's the closest I've ever been to a Van Morrison concert circa 1973, it was that soulful. Then Tex Thomas came over to my table (I was with some record collectors & record label owners from Italy & France, I would take them around town and show them the best places to eat & hear live music at) and he called me an "Indian" & ruined the moment. Ha! But you know, that night Tex did sing almost like Van, very beautiful, and soulful.
