The remaining 8 tracks were mostly familiar Burrito staples although Greg does a very nice version of Rick Robert's "Colorado" and other songs new to the band's catalogue - Hank William's "There'll Be No Teardrops Tonight", Boudleux & Felice Bryant's "Rocky Top", Terry Fell's classic "Truck Driving Man".Several labels have subsequently released the album using both the above titles.On return from Japan Gene Parsons enters the picture again replacing Ed Ponder and with the Elektra label showing interest in signing the band several demos are recorded at Conway Studios, with Gib, Gene & Greg handling the vocals.Four songs from these sessions have surfaced amongst collectors : The first two songs were later recorded by Greg Harris for his one "Electric" solo album, and "Ooh - Wee California" had already been recorded by Gib in his "Swampwater" days at RCA.American Cruisers MC -The American Cruisers MC is an international association of motorcycle enthusiasts.

Produced by The Flying Burrito Brothers Band: Sneaky Pete Kleinow, Gib Guilbeau, Skip Battin, Greg Harris & Ed Ponder Tracks: Big Bayou / White Line Fever / Dim Lights, Thick Smoke / There'll Be No Teardrops Tonight Rolling In My Sweet Baby's Arms / Hot Burrito # 2 / Colorado / Rocky Top Six Days On The Road / Truck Drivin' Man Surprisingly in 1979 Regency also released a single from the album coupling "White Line Fever" with "Big Bayou" which actually gave the band it's first single chart entry by reaching the lower reaches of the country singles chart.The three remaining members, Sneaky, Gib & Skip, brought Ed Ponder back on drums and recruited singer & multi - instrumentalist Greg Harris for the Japanese tour.Greg is a proficient musician on Guitar, Fiddle, Banjo, Mandolin as well as being an excellent singer and although his previous experience apart, from an album with Chick Rains, was mainly as a backing musician but he proved to be a very capable front man for the band.Coincidentally, at this time one of Skip's old groups The New Riders Of The Purple Sage were also having personnel problems and down to three members, John Dawson, David Nelson & Patrick Shanahan so the two factions united and played together for about a month before going their separate ways again.Even though record sales had never been high there was always a market for the Flying Burrito Brothers as a touring band particularly in Japan and Europe and an offer to tour Japan was too good to turn down.The band then took a break although, along with Hoyt Axton, they did play at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium in December 1979 in a benefit show for the Chumash Indians after which Greg Harris left.
