Mouse And The Traps of Tyler Texas were one of the great garage bands, writing and recording classics like the Dylan ripoff/homage "A Public Execution"
and a special favorite of mine, the wistful "Sometimes You Just Cant Win"
As garage rock waned MATT guitarists Randy "Mouse" Weiss and David Stanley formed a country-rock band called Rio Grande. Teaming with producer Dale Hawkins (from Goldmine, LA, he'd cut the original version of "Suzy-Q" in 1957, with Shreveport's James Burton on rockabilly guitar), they released one album for RCA. It quickly sank into obscurity and has never been released on CD.
The pedal steel guitar of Bobby Tuttle is a highlight of these rare tracks Rio Grande - "Me and my Wife" Rio Grande - "So Good To Be Free"
