    TOO SMOOTH were an Austin Texas based four piece who specialized in hard edged Southern Rock, but also occasionally dallied with progressive song structures.
    A legendary band, and a huge live draw in their homestate in the '70's, the rest of the world is finally catching on to the band 30 years after their initial split.
    Interlocking guitarists Brian Wooten and Jeff Clark, bassist Danny Swinney and drummer Tom Holden were each distinctive players who brought something special to the group.
    Two sang, three wrote songs and all four worked out arrangements, making for a sound that was all over the place stylistically but rooted in riff-wailing guitar rock.
    The band broke up in 1981 without ever releasing an album.
    Too Smooth formed in 1973, when Wooten replaced STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN in the band STUMP, which also featured Clark and Holden.
    "Stump was always a compromise because Stevie and (bassist) David Frame wanted to play blues, and Tom and I were more into rock," says Clark.
    "When Brian joined, it took us in the direction that became Too Smooth."
    The band moved in together on a 42 acre farm near Lake Travis, where they practiced at least six hours a day.
    Their new harder Rock sound, solidified with the addition of bassist Swinney, necessitated a name change to Too Smooth.
    Their twin guitar attack and legendary live shows soon garnered the band a huge home-state following.
    When touring acts such as GOLDEN EARRING, TED NUGENT and LYNYRD SKYNYRD made their initial forays into Austin, bookers would put Too Smooth on as the opening act to ensure a full house.
    Too Smooth signed with Michael Lang's Just Sunshine label in '74 and recorded an album at the Record Plant in California.
    Unfortunately, just as the band were finishing up work on the LP the label was sold to ABC.
    The new owners didn't know who Too Smooth was, and didn't care, and dropped the band without releasing the album.
    The band's second chance came in 1976 when they signed to Buddah Records.
    Too Smooth were dispatched to Criterion Studios in Miami to record another album, but released only one 45 for Buddah, "Song For the World".
    The label had decided to concentrate on it's disco acts, and once more Too Smooth were dropped, with another unreleased album in the can.
    The band then released a single, "Mamie Mama", on the local independent Armadillo Records label.
    When Mercury Records began courting the band it looked like it might be 3rd time lucky for Too Smooth, but negotiations broke down before a contract could be finalised.
    Holden was the first to leave, in the fall of '78, followed by Wooten about two years later.
    When Swinney quit to join CHRISTOPHER CROSS on the road in 1980, Clark kept Too Smooth going with new members, but things weren't the same and the band finally fell apart in late '81.
    Wooten & Clark later reappeared in a covers band called 14K, before Wooten went on to join first THE IMPERIALS, then WHITEHEART in 1989.
    Whiteheart released four albums during Wooten's stint in the band, before he left them in 1996.
    He was then involved with the band PETRA, writing & recording 3 albums with them before joining the band of Country singer TRACE ATKINS.
    Danny Swinney kept himself busy with a quintet called SUEDE, a popular live act in their home state.
    Drummer Tom Holden also remained active in music, playing with an act called DUCK SOUP.
    After a few Too Smooth reunion shows in recent years, the band finally released their first album in early 2011.
    Entitled "Still", this double CD contains remastered studio recordings by the original band at the height of their powers in the 1970's.
    A further album, the live "Live & Kickin'", followed a few months later, containing vintage concert cuts alongside material recorded at their reunion shows.
