Artist Info Track Listing
Artist Info
So many artists have been hauled out of obscurity to be tagged the greatest secret you’ve never been told. Rick Blincoe is one of the few who actually might deserve that epithet. Rick grew up in Austin, Texas during a time when “being in a band” was as much a competitive sport as artistic endeavor. His influences are rooted in the British invasion, beginning with those four lads from Liverpool and then cemented by the Clapton-Beck-Page era. Additional influences came from the energy of the Psychedelic, Armadillo World Headquarters, love beads, love ins, free love, flower children, black light posters and incense, expansion of consciousness, spiritualism soaked in the idealism of the late 1960’s and 1970’s. Rick’s rock-and-roll resume is long and diverse as his musical journey has been non-stop since those early days. He continues to grow, learn, and seek his own voice, because what really matters today is today. With the release of “Don’t Bet The Farm”, Rick paints his picture of the journey through life by recalling the innocence of adolescent awaking with “Ms. Beehayven” and the frustrations of adult survival with “Harleys and Horses, Guns and Gold”. The songs on this CD represent Rick’s vision of the human condition while remembering the past and driving toward the future.
