The Whole Enchilada- History of Desert Rock, Tucson, Arizona 1978-1994

The paperback book of The Whole Enchilada: The History of Desert Rock, Tucson, Arizona 1978-1994 is now available on Amazon.

Accompanying the three-record set is this 70-page companion book with rare photos, obscure histories and anecdotes, and dozens of biographical essays by many of the artists themselves and others by named writers, journalists, photographers and deejays, placing the reader centerstage at Desert Rock’s halcyon days.

The painstakingly compiled collection is a veritable Tucson musical family tree, leading us from from the mid-1970s through the mid-1990s, from the swoony Bob Meighan Band and the honky tonk of the Dusty Chaps (both whom signed to major labels in the 1970’s) to international indie giants Green On Red (Serfers), Howe Gelb and Giant Sandworms, Naked Prey, Al Perry and The Cattle, Desert Rock breakouts The Sidewinders, Yard Trauma, Black Sun Ensemble and many more. 

The Whole Enchilada

The effort was compiled by Tucson natives Brian Jabas Smith and Douglas “Fini” Finical. In addition, the set includes a code that allows fans to view the 30-minute Whole Enchilada documentary, featuring a handful of stars and coulda-shouldas included in the project, helmed by film-fest winning director Maggie Smith.

Proceeds from THE WHOLE ENCHILADA benefit Tucson’s Casa Maria Soup Kitchen.
