Documenting Austin's '60s and '70s music scene
Sonobeat Records launches in 1967, just as Austin's nascent music scene is beginning to come alive. Through hundreds of recordings of Austin, Central Texas, and national and international acts, Sonobeat documents one of the most exciting eras in Austin music history. Join us on a trip back to the beginning of the Austin music scene.
Rediscovering Fast Cotton
In 1970, Fast Cotton emerges from the core members of Austin's hot '60s party and club band, the Sweetarts. But Fast Cotton departs from the rock 'n' roll that made the Sweetarts so popular, featuring instead an trendsetting mix of bluesy rock and rhythm 'n' blues. Rediscover one of Austin's most refreshing '70s bands.
