Nice album for a now defunk group
I liked this album enough that I went on Amazon to look for other stuff by them. For the Sweet Brown Bear, I found this mention in the project description: "Slot recorded one last lot of songs before their dissolution in 1995. Alas, it was never released to anyone but close friends. When Billy Rivkin lost his struggle against cancer in 2004, the Small Stone crew was in Austin looking forward to nights of heavy drinking and heavy rock. But when the phone call came, that all changed ... pain, anger, and disbelief led to nostalgia. Eventually Small Stone "revisited" the Slot catalog and, to the label's amazement, the "unreleased" material held up beautifully. The Sweet Black Bear is nothing less than Slot and Rivkin's last testament, and Small Stone has decided to release this album not only as a tribute to dear, departed friend, but as fans--pure, gleeful fans of this little band called Slot." Hopefully, e-music will make the ir other EPs available.
