Cayenne - Cayenne - (1975)



Cayenne was a band from San Francisco, California. So not really a Southern Rock band. But it might still interest some lovers of up tempo Country Rock. A very rare album released on a small independent label (Bucksnort Records) and basically a collection of demos they cut from 1972 to 1975 (Rip sent to me by Luc. Thanks!). Some more than adequate playing, if not spectacular. Very nice listen, though. It reminded me somewhat of Poco, but I'm no expert on that kind of music. Maker your move..

Wow, this is a great album. Very good country rock in the style of Poco or early Eagles with great harmony vocals. Wonder why they never made it...thanks for the post, Marc, Amsterdam

I have this album in my collection and think of these fine harmonies so often. Wish they were still around ..

I have this album. Terrific harmonies by these fine country rock musicians. Wish we could hear more from them.

Hello, my name is Albert Schildknecht and I played piano on a couple of your tracks you recorded in Buena Park, California in a studio owned by Gary Dalton and Kent Dubarri. There was a total of 6 tracks and I always wondered if they made it to vinyl or CD. I have an off the board mix and listen to them quite often and wonder what happened to you guys. The tracks are:
It’s all I can Do
So I’ll Get Back To You
King of the Mountain
Down the Road
Cream of Kentucky
