It's official: Mike Barfield has shelved the Hollisters name, along with the band's boom- chicka-boom sound. Since getting unstuck from our East Texas pines and heading for Austin a couple of years ago, Barfield has moved his music toward the bluesy soul-country of Roy Head and Delbert McClinton. His next release features covers of obscure James Brown and Junior Wells tunes, as well as a little of what he calls an "acoustic Bakersfield" sound. Barfield hasn't shed everything Hollister, though; bassist Cledus has returned to the fold.
