Down along the Texas gulf coast and the Louisiana/Texas state line you will find the cities of Beaumont, Post Arthur and Orange, locally called the golden triangle. This area of southeast Texas has produced some of the best Blues, Cajun, country and zydeco music of the 20th century, such as Clarence Garlow, Long John Hunter, Tom Hunter, Janis Joplin, Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown, Johnny Winter, Edgar Winter, Ezra Charles, Joe Jonas — the list goes on. Among these greats is Barbara Lynn. In the early sixties, Barbara wrote and recorded, “You’re Losin’ a Good Thing,” which in the 70’s was also recorded by another Texan, Freddy Finder. Some of you may have seen her on American Bandstand like I did in the sixties.
