Hmm...imagine that. Alamo, just like The Gentrys, had several variations of band members. The original band was a trio and consisted of; (L-R) Ken Woodley, Larry Raspberry and Richard Roseborough. After signing the band to Atlantic and prior to their album release, the label put together several quick showcases in an effort to view the band on stage. One concert was staged on Long Island N.Y.
before a very large crowd that included the members of the Atlantic hierarchy. Another appearance was in New Orleans at The Warehouse concert hall while opening for still another Atlantic act, The Allman Brothers Band. After returning home to Memphis and performing several shows in front of local crowds, friction began to set-in with band members and Larry Raspberry was out. Within days of hearing the news, the corporate officers at Atlantic were apparently displeased upon hearing the status of Raspberry's departure and seemed to lose all enthusiasm on the Alamo album.
