The Buttermilk and FlatRock Records Austin,Texas- were originally based in Houston Texas and have been releasing records since 1970. During the 70's and early 80's the in-house studios produced and released 19 albums and 32 singles, most of which had regional distribution. There was also a Buttermilk "mobile truck" with 16 track recording capability that recorded hundreds of hours of local music as well as 60+ live-mix radio broadcasts for all the major labels, with performances by such artists as Peter Tosh , The POLICE , Talking Heads , Tonya Tucker , Todd Rundgren , Johnny Winter , Jimmy Reed , Spirit , Leslie West and many others. This label was known as a strong source original new Texas talent and many of its artists went on to become internationally known. Owner Charles Bickley was the only Texas representative to have a booth at "Musexpo" in 1978 and represented such acts as Fever Tree, the Steve Long Group (formerly Navasota), Deerfield, Richard Dobson, Shake Russell, John Bell, Relayer, Lic, Eric Taylor &Rocky Hill (Dusty Hill's brother): in all, about 100 masters were demonstrated and several international lease deals resulted. Publishing has been an active part of Buttermilk actions and several of the songs from our catalog have been recorded by major artists. Lucinda Williams and Eric Taylor did their first recording in the Buttermilk studios on the LP recorded for Anderson Fair Restaurant in Houston Texas . David Allen Coe recorded Richard Dobson's, "Piece of Wood and Steel" and Carlene Carter cut his song "Baby Ride Easy" {produced by Rob Lowe }which got to #65 in Billboard. He also has songs recorded by Billy Joe Spears and Rodney Crowell. Another Buttermilk release got spotlighted as "strangest novelty song of the year" by Billboard. It was a recording of "The Hemma- Ridge Mountain Boys" doing Ray Hubbard's song "Up Against the Wall Red Neck Mother" in pig-Latin!

____________________

The label became inactive in 1984 due to pressure to retool with digital technology that has revived Buttermilk records. The amazing versatility of computer enhancement of old masters that have been transferred to DAT format along with the renewed interest in the 1970's music scene has made the 100's of unreleased masters in the Buttermilk vault quite in vogue. Last year we released a 25 year old live tape of "Deerfield Live" on 12" vinyl and CD's of "Charlie B. and the Bluelites" and Johnny Winter "Live at the Texas Opry House". Buttermilk and Flatrock will continue to release old masters on vinyl CD and cassette but we are also very interested in making lease deals with other labels to release our masters in other parts of the world. We have music in various categories: 70's rock, Psychedelic Rock, Blues, country and a 12 album anthology of Texas Gulf Coast Jazz from the 60's in the archives just waiting to be re-mastered.
