Super Grit Cowboy Band, featuring Curtis Wright

Postby Proud1 » Wed Mar 21, 2007 5:26 am

It's amazing what you can come up with going through your old vinyl collection. I pulled out the Super Grit Cowboy Bands album from the early eihties. If You Cant Hang...Drag Your Country Ass Home. I'd completely forgotten that Curtis Wright was a member of this band. He features on Lead Guitar and Vocals on the two tracks he wrote "Ready To Rock and Roll", and "This ol' Highway Song. Maybe these should be featured on Tom's excellent discography page. It's a very good album and what stands out is that all members of the band take their turn at lead vocals.
Just discovered that they are still on the go, albeit a different line-up, and have made several other albums.
Has anyone got any of their albums or seen them live.

Another Great song done by SGCB which Curtis Wrote is called
She Is TheWoman from that same album.
Yes SGCB is still going strong here in eastern NC.We go to see them every year at the Collard Festival in Ayden,NC.I got a few other albums on vinyl by them i gotta dig out now that i think about it.

Listen,

You guys just leave that stuff be.
I was only a flegling in those days.
I didn't even own a razor.

Proud 1,

You flatter me.

Hope to get to the UK and meet you in person some day.
Who knows, maybe ol' LJDJ Show will come with me.
I'd love to play St. Andrews and get thrown out of an authentic Irish pub!!

(insert favorite Shakespeare quote here)

. . . as Ernest Tubb would say, " Be good to your neighbors, and you'll have better neighbors !"

Are UK chics into Collards?

Later,

Indeed...Super Grit was / is an excellent band. Late '70's and early '80's I used to see them all the time here in Virginia. They always gave great shows, and the musicianship was tops. Many a beer toasted to Super Grit. Has been years since I've seen them, but I believe they used to play a tune called something like "Pretty Girls Never Travel In Pairs". Help me out here, Curtis...is this right?

Anyway, hope to catch this band if they come around these parts.

Hey LJDJ, would love a copy of that album on cd if you do get round to doing it.

Been trying to source the rest of their albums but not having much luck. Their website says they are now available from Hoodswamp records, but not sure if that includes for overseas.

I guess Blairsboy wasn't kidding about the razor.

Hey Y'all,

That same hairstyle (pretty much) has survived 25 years now. I'm no Justin Timberlake, but I'm thinkin' of "Bringin' Mullets Back".

Ingredients:
Flex Shampoo
Flex Balsam Conditioner (every two days)
Final Net (unsented) extra-hold
(No Moose or any of that other shit)

Long live Conair !!

I believe you left out the most important part of your routine Blairsboy.

What number Clairol do you use ?

All the best,
Tom

Only my hairdresser knows for sure !

No, I spray paint my beard once a month, but that's all.
(Blessed with good hair and good genes, but lousy table manners)
I'd love to get all the pictures from that roll.
