Southern Express


Found this previously-unknown-to-me Colorado LP on the big online auction site, thanks to a friend who alerted me. The seller told me he found the album in in Greeley. Of course I was happy to add it to the stash.

Southern Express was a five-piece country-rock group out of Fort Collins. Headed up by Whit Privette (bass and lead vocals), along with Cathy Privette (keyboards / vocals), Todd McCoy (drums), Cary Jones (guitar), and Larry Zollinger (piano, guitar, sax, and vocals).

This 1986 LP (Please Wait For Me) was produced by Thad Crowe, over at Paragon Sound, in Fort Collins.

Has an 80s bar band vibe to it, with more emphasis on rock than country.  The group thanks the Sundance Saloon, in Fort Collins, specifically.

Listen to "Live Wire"

Found a few ads for the band, playing on the Western Slope, and a few other places.

Daily Sentinel - Grand Junction (August 2, 1985)

I have some emails out to the members, and hope to get more on the group, soon.
