About Aztec Two-Step
Folk duo consisting of Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman. Their 1972 self-titled debut presented solid, satisfying songwriting occasionally defaced by the epic-making aspirations of prog rock. Still, it's their best album and a forgotten classic of '70s Folk-Rock. Stand-out tracks include "Cockroach Cacophony" -- the American folk scene's answer to the Beatles' "A Day in the Life" -- and "The Persecution and Restoration of Dean Moriarty (On The Road)," which, along with Tom Waits' "Jack & Neil," is one of the coolest songs ever about the Beats.
