The Flatlanders, lifelong friends, began making music together more than 30 years ago. They released their first work in 1972 as an eight-track tape only and then on vinyl that was only available in Europe. The band gained a cult following. But with the group’s recordings rare and hard to find, they went their separate ways, each becoming successful musicians while remaining friends. They reunited in 1998 when asked to write a song for “The Horse Whisperer” soundtrack – which they wrote together. On the 1972 recording they wrote individually and recorded together. The collaborative effort paid off, leading to the critically acclaimed albums Now Again (May 2002) and Wheels Of Fortune (January 2004). The group’s latest album is Hills And Valleys (March 2009).
