Frequently called the Formerly Brothers, Amos Garrett (Ian & Sylvia, Maria Muldaur, Paul Butterfield's Better Days), Doug Sahm (Sir Douglas Quintet) and Gene Taylor (the Blasters, Big Joe Turner, Rick Nelson, Canned Heat) formed at the 1986 Edmonton Folk Festival, playing roots-rock, country, R&B, folk and blues. So popular was the performance and subsequent tour of Canada that the group recorded The Return of the Formerly Brothers in 1988; it was released in America by Rykodisc. The album also features drummer Bohdan Hluszko and bassist Kit Johnson. ~ John Bush, Rovi
