Recordings by the Band formerly known as Red Mountain White Trash* and now known as the Red Mountain Yellowhammers

(*It was a joke, referring to the fact that the band was founded when we all lived near each other on Red Mountain which Wikipedia describes as "one of Birmingham's most prominent upscale neighborhoods. It is home to the majority of the multi-million dollar residences and estates that are located within the city proper. "
