Over two nights they recorded four tracks that would end up on Harvest. Young then used frequent collaborator Nitzsche to arrange and produce two tracks with an orchestra. He then brought the three Nashville musicians plus Nitzsche to his ranch in California to record the three electric-guitar songs in his barn. In 1973, they backed Young on his Time Fades Away tour, though Buttrey was replaced mid-tour and on the album Time Fades Away by Johnny Barbata. They ceased to operate as a unit after that tour. Drummond and Keith continued to work individually with Young on subsequent projects. Young reconvened The Stray Gators for his 1992 Harvest Moon album, with Spooner Oldham replacing Nitzsche on keyboards. Nitzsche, however, did arrange the strings on "Such a Woman", as he had done on Harvest (on "A Man Needs A Maid" and "There's A World").

The Tail Gators made a beautiful record in "Swamp Rock" - unpretentious, simple rock trio instrumentation, flashes of virtuosity, and straightforwardness that never becomes cloying. They've got a roots rock feeling that is made for dancing with a mug of beer in hand. Don Leady, out of the LeRoi Brothers, sings with a rough-hewn honesty, and his guitar and fiddle playing are smooth and loping and right on time. This may have happened in the mastering of the CD - I don't rememb! ! er the vinyl being this way, but how long has it been since I've heard the vinyl? The mix handles low volume playing poorly, but played loud the vocals seem to bloom a bit, and it's beautiful.
