Corky's Debt To His Father is a solo album by Mayo Thompson, a founder of the Red Krayola. It was recorded and released in 1970 on the independent label Texas Revolution. The record is an experiment in the genre of solo singer-songwriter format and as Thompson says, it "embraces the personal and treats the instrumental power of music for the sake of expression."
Thompson will perform at the Hammer Museum on January 9th in Los Angeles, California at 7:30PM. After a sold out show at in New York City's (Le) Poisson Rouge, this is the second in a series of concerts marking fifty years of Corky. This is a free event and spots will go quickly, so act fast.
