Big Sandy & His Flyrite Boys
Twenty-five years, fourteen albums & hundreds of thousands of miles. What a dream it’s been! When I first got together for a garage rehearsal with a group of musician friends in the spring of 1988 in Anaheim, California, I never imagined that I would someday be celebrating the silver anniversary of the rocking little band that formed that afternoon. Putting together the new all-acoustic record for Cow Island Music has brought back a flood of memories; we went through our entire catalogue of LP’s, picked out some of our favorite original numbers, and gave them fresh new arrangements, rhythms, and instrumentation. In many ways , it was our way of looking back at everything that has led us to where we are now, while looking forward towards new musical horizons. Happy 25th Anniversary, Fly-Rite Boys! Here’s to 25 more!
