Kenny and the Kasuals
Impact is both a high water mark for the band that produced it—perfectly capturing, as it does, their high energy mixture of punked-up R and B delivered with British Invasion attitude and Lone Star musical chops—but is also the ultimate musical snapshot of a specific time and place. Like the best albums, Impact goes far beyond just capturing music, it captures atmosphere, standout tracks being possibly the best version of "Money" ever recorded and a reading of fellow Texan Barbara Lynn's "Oh Baby (We Got A Good Thing Goin')" that single-handedly puts the Rolling Stones famed rendition to utter shame.
This "live" album was recorded at Robin Hood Brian's studio in Tyler, Texas. Robin even overdubbed a phone call, answered the phone to tell the caller who was playing that night.
