Todd...did you get it at Baytown Records?? A little 45 store near the Ivy Room...
Avatar 1:25pm Scott C.:

@Rex: Rexala, a few weeks ago you finished up Fool's Paradise by playing "Cry Baby Cry" by Van & Titus. I know some musicians (Chandler Travis and Christine Ohlman) who sort of adopted that record as a personal favorite after Christine found the record at a yard sale (I think). Christine (The Beehive Queen) even recorded a version of the song featuring Dion! So the record resonates a lot for many of us. They even tracked down George Brantley, "Van" of Van & Titus and made him aware of what his record meant to them. I told a friend who still speaks to Van about the Fool's Paradise airplay and she relayed the news to a delighted George/Van.
We did good, Rex, didn't we do good?

By the time we moved to S'port/Bossier ('82) the Strip was well past its glory days. Was a pretty scary, run-down stretch of skeevy motels and honky-tonks that exuded a Lynchian menace. Reminded me in spirit of Big Tuna, Texas in "Wild at Heart."

When I was a teen, one of the remaining vestiges of the Bossier Strip was the Kickapoo Motel and cafe at the very end, where Texas St meets Benton Rd. The kind of run-down motel that would let high-school kids rent out rooms for parties, no questions asked. Had some times there. The cafe wasn't bad though, classic Southern diner, great fried chicken.
