Cool video High Plains! Brought back some great memories, although they did not mention The Spoon (although I think it was Sprotts being interviewed in front of their sign), or Abbey Road. I saw tons of shows in those two places I'll admit.
Also cool to see Scott Faris in the vid. Incredible guitarist, and all around really nice guy, at least way back in the day when I knew him.

The Cotton Club looks like it would have been a fun place but it was probably gone by the time I came to the South Plains region in 1968.

Former Lubbockite Delbert McClinton (all of 74 years young and still performing) is doing a big cruise next year. Check this out at this link.

Unfortunately, West Texas is not in Delbert's immediate tour plans.
