Omar and the Howlers, Live at the Opera House

This is Omar and the Howlers recorded live at the (now shuttered) Opera House in Austin on August 30, 1987. Omar Kent Dykes and the classic Howlers lineup from the Hard Times in the Land of Plenty era with Eric Scortia on Hammond B-3, Gene Brandon on drums and Bruce Jones on bass. Simply put, they were an unstoppable force to be reckoned with. If your name was Vaughan in Texas with Double Trouble or the Thunderbirds, you were aware of Omar as the man with that voice and that guitar that meant you’d better tighten up your doo if you were going to step on the same stage. Omar ruled. No more needs to be said.
