CHARMER: ANOTHER SOUTHERN SUMMER
Lunatunes/Stevenson Productions (RR006) - 1986
Recorded in a live, one-take setting in the band's headquarters building by long-time friend and sound engineer, Bill Bennett, 'Summer' was the quartet at their strongest. The album featured signature songs and the vibrancy of their 'blood harmonies'. Summer also focused on southern themes and traditional, roots-oriented styles. This was 'Americana' long before that term was used.
