I am bit surprised that I cannot find pics of this band or much info about this release, as it seems to be one of the seminal versions of this song (which has been done by about everyone). Maybe its because there are as many different bands with this name or a slight variation as there are cover versions imitating the twangy "Eddy-esque" guitar sound and the demonic cattle calls that drive this side. Here is some correct(ed) info about the band which recorded for Amy Records back in the early 60's. I have made it a point to collect as many versions of this song as possible, but I still think this one sets the best mood, esp. for an instrumental. Maybe I will try to throw a couple others up here today. Until then, enjoy this animated rendering of the story complete with ghost cowboys and purple ghost horses scrolling across the cloudscape.
