Just as 60 million buffalo used to roam the plains, great little rock and roll groups like this one used to pop up across the land during the late 60s and early 70s. This one was the main competition for Zephyr as best Colorado band; both boasted powerhouse female vocalists (Judy Roderick was Buffalo s; Candy Givens was Zephyr s) and hot playing. That s a young Bill Szymczyk behind the board, too. A long-lost nugget (**** All Music Guide), a Collectors Choice Music exclusive!
Lost Treasure from the '70s

"While I was a kid in High School, my brother was in the Army in Germany, which fortunately for me meant that I had to keep his record collection and stereo in my room so it wouldn't get wrecked in the garage in the dusty desert heat in our town....
Before my family moved to Bakersfield Ca. in 1972, we lived in Orange County, and my brother was several years older than me so he moved in a much different direction than I did. In that great era of music he had lots of opportunities to hear a rather diverse and eclectic make up of Rock. The upside of this for me was, I got to hear albums that my peers did not.
Case in point; 60,000 Buffalo's Nevada Jukebox. Fronted by the "Joplinesque" Judy Roderick, the group plays a hard driving Roadhouse version of "Folk Rock" For example, there is a "Rock" version of "Man of Constant Sorrow" the traditional blue grass song from "Oh Brother Where Art Thou". I never knew it at the time, but evidently 60,000,000 Buffalo was the big favorite of Denver Rock Clubs at the time (1971), what I did know was that I really liked it, and have missed it since my brother took his records back in the mid `70s. I have searched for several years trying to find this album, and now thanks to Amazon, I have this treasure again.
Is it for everyone? Probably not. However, if you like the old style of "Roadhouse Rock" from the `70s (This is a Country flavored version; Cowbells and all), were a fan of Janis Joplin, or like old "Muddy Water" kind of blues, then you'll probably like it as much as I do.
