Calico was a very special album that saw a studio return to more democracy within the band. It’s a country/rock concept LP done several years before Willie Nelson and the like popularized those type of releases. All the songs are based on real people and events that happened in the silver mining town of Calico back in the late 1800’s. School Teacher is from the The Ballad of Calico and is sung by Kin Vassy. Kin’s voice is probably one of the best I’ve ever heard.
