"Breathes there a man or woman with a soul so dead as to never have craved a fix of good, old-fashioned, honest-to-God live horns ... one of the few acts with enough brass in its gorgonzolas to hit the road as a full-fledged horn band." BILLBOARD

That’s What I Like About The South

That’s What I Like About The South, 1989 The famed “Kooper sessions.” Chris met Al Kooper through David Bromberg at the Bottom Line in New York.
The record was named for Neon Parkís painting on the cover. I Like Your Shoes featured Larry Wilkins and his wife Kathy on back up vocals, Neil Stubenhouse on bass, Larry Thompson on drums, and Al Kooper plus Benmont Trench, from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, on keyboards. For song the horns were Fly, Forrest, and Jim, with Randy on guitar. It felt like Tom wrote Depot Street for the Kings, but he first recorded it with “Mud Crutch.” Al Kooper brought the Kings the song and arranged the horns with Fly. It was the first song off “That’s What I Like About The South” to make the A-3 charts thanks to KBCO. Steve “Pinki” Soell on drums, Dean LeDoux on keys, Kevin “Bro” Lege on bass and Carlos Chavez joined the band for this record. Recorded at Colorado Sound with Kevin Clock and in LA at Alís studio, the Slammer.
