Check out this Shiva's Headband Vulcan Gas Company poster. This really jumps off the page!
Shiva's entered the Austin music scene in 1967. Shiva’s Headband quickly garnered a leading position in the emerging Austin music scene building a large following of loyal fans all over Texas. The group became the house band at the Vulcan Gas Company with Sonobeat recording Shiva's Headband there in February 1968 but the group was dissatisfied with those recordings.
As the Shiva’s reputation grew, they began being billed with such acts as Spirit, Steppenwolf, ZZ Top, Janis Joplin, Canned Heat and Steve Miller. Contract offers arrived from RCA, CBS, Electra and others. Ultimately, they signed with Capitol and released the first LP from the Austin scene (Take Me To The Mountains, produced by Spencer Perskin with Fred Catero ).
