The Jades of Fort Worth, their second 45 and later pressings of the third one were released under that name. Their third 45 was originally credited to Jades Of Stone. They specialized in cover versions, which they delivered in their own fiery style. On I'm Alright Gary Carpenter set a Rolling Stones song to new lyrics and the formula worked - they enjoyed a hit. Next up was a Small Faces song and for their third and final effort they chose a Van Morrison composition.

They finally called it a day in 1969, by which time only Carpenter and McCool remained from their original line-up. For the first half of the seventies Carpenter played in a show band called Colossus, and later he recorded an album which he decided not to release. After a spell as a DJ in Fort Worth he was last heard of managing the Sound Idea stereo store on Camp Bowie.

The most comprehensive guide to their material can be found on their retrospective album.
Before, during and after Sound Idea I was affiliated with 4 other bands as well as being a music programmer and DJ.
The Bands were:
1. Zippi Daniels
2. About Tyme
3. The Boogie Brothers Band
4. Jubilation
As well as music I recorded under Gary Carpenter.

My DJ career consisted of following Clubs;
Nutcracker Club, Fort Worth, TX for 5 years
Max Minors Club, Keller, TX for 1 year
Tibaron Club, Arlington, TX for 2 years
Ricalur Club, Marriott, DFW Airport for 4 years

In 1988 I wrote and recorded a song called Back the Blue by GW Carpenter. This song was adopted as the official fund raising song for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington D.C. In a 5 year period Barbara Mandrell, myself and many others helped raise $5 million dollars for this project.
Well here it is, 2009 and for the last 10 years I’ve been living in Las Vegas, Nevada. Working with the Entertainers in their Show Stores;
Celine Dion for 5 years
Elton John for 5 years
Bette Midler for 1 year
Cher for 1 year
The Beatles “Love” for 2 years
All the albums that are being offered are from all the recording and videos, some studio and some live, that I made with my different bands all those years ago. I hope you enjoy them. Till the next time,

Keep on Rock’n
