Kenny and the Kasuals - History & Music For Sale

Kenny and the Kasuals began their music-making in 1965. The teen idol band had a fantastic two year run of performances. Their biggest hit record "Journey to Tyme" propelled them to a record contract with United Artists only to see the band dissolve because of members getting drafted. This would be Kenny and the Kasuals 1.0, and the band reforms again in the '80s and continued until 2019. 

The band leaves an interesting legacy of music, beginning with songs that felt more at home in the '50s but evolving over time into a true psychedelic/punk sound. A remastered release of their classic "Journey to Tyme" was released in 2021 as a bonus track on the remastered IMPACT album. 

All of Kenny and the Kasuals recordings from the '60s are available here for digital download. These recordings were recently reprocessed to provide you with top-quality audio. The songs maintain their retro sound and feel through recent advances in audio processing technology.

Kenny and the Kasuals first album

IMPACT

Kenny and the Kasuals

Impact is both a high water mark for the band that produced it—perfectly capturing, as it does, their high energy mixture of punked-up R and B delivered with British Invasion attitude and Lone Star musical chops—but is also the ultimate musical snapshot of a specific time and place. Like the best albums, Impact goes far beyond just capturing music, it captures atmosphere, standout tracks being possibly the best version of "Money" ever recorded and a reading of fellow Texan Barbara Lynn's "Oh Baby (We Got A Good Thing Goin')" that single-handedly puts the Rolling Stones famed rendition to utter shame.

This "live" album was recorded at Robin Hood Brian's studio in Tyler, Texas. Robin even overdubbed a phone call, answered the phone to tell the caller who was playing that night.
