Aztec Two-Step

Two out-of-towners — Rex Fowler from Maine, and Neal Shulman from New York — met each other in 1971 when each was performing at an open mic night at the Stone Phoenix Coffeehouse in Boston. Before a year went by, they had joined forces, called themselves Aztec Two-Step (from a line in Lawrence Ferlinghetti’s “A Coney Island of the Mind”), signed with Elektra Records, and released their self-titled first album of folk-rock music. They got some radio play with “The Persecution & Restoration of Dean Moriarty (On the Road),” but waited three years to make their follow-up, Second Step. Many albums followed, as did touring throughout the U.S. and Europe. Besides their own music, they’ve also done a “Simon & Garfunkel Songbook” show. Their most recent release is the 2007 DVD of their 35th anniversary show, in which they performed their first album, with songs in the order they were originally presented.
