HILL COUNTRY HAPPENINGS MAGAZINE

"LEGENDS BEFORE THE FALL"
T. Gozney Thornton and The Old Hat Band
Old Chivo Records

In a magazine that will go unnamed I saw a name I hadn't seen or heard in alomost twenty years - T. Gozney Thornton.  It was great to know that an old running mate was still alive and in musical action.  T. Gozney, as we used to call him back in the old days, was an Americana original about two decades before there was such a thing and an Austin fixture among the Waylon and Willie bunch.  "Legends Before The Fall" contains 12 songs, most by T, and spans over twenty years of recordings - from 1984 through early 2007.  The CD is a journal of T's journey through music and life and each song is obviously heartfelt.  This walk down memory lane also brings other familiar faces into the mix.  Old friends like Joe Forlini and Stephen Bruton add great guitar parts and other session notables include Jophnny Gimble on fiddle, the recently departed David Zentner on steel guitar and a host of others make this songwriter's CD a special additon to any collection.
