Publisher's Summary

Veteran, award-winning producer Joe Bevilacqua hosts this hour-long program outlining the history of Threadgill's and Armadillo World Headquarters, their contribution to the birth of the Austin music scene, and their influence on the Nashville Sound and country rock. As heard on Sirius XM and NPR, the hour features commentary and music by many of the key players of the time, including rare never-before-released recordings of Janis Joplin.

Critic Reviews

"This program offers a soup-to-nuts history of Austin's growth into the live music Mecca that it's become today. The show is more than just contemporary talking heads and music - it features an amazing collection of archival interviews and recordings (including tape of some never-before-heard early Janis Joplin performances, which should qualify as an authentic archival treasure). The production is well put together, flowing smoothly between many different elements." (Eric Nuzum, NPR's vice president for programming)
