The Very Best of Dr Buzzard's Original Savannah Band ~ Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band

Its one of the great musical travesties that so few people have heard of Dr Buzzard's Original Savannah Band. Rising like a phoenix from the dying embers of NY disco, this motley collection of musicians produced catchy, clever and memorable songs that are truly unique.

In November 1959, the writer Truman Capote was browsing through a newspaper when a brief news article reporting the brutal murder of a Kansas family caught his eye. Intrigued, he resolved to investigate the case further, persuading his friend Nelle Harper Lee to travel with him to the small farming township in which the murders took place. Once there, Capote and Lee immersed themselves in the aftermath of the murders, befriending anyone who had any connection to the case. Their investigations revealed a community that had been shaken to the core, its previously mundane but safe and secure existence shattered by the slayings.

At first it seemed that the murders would go unsolved… Read more
