In 1977, he created a collaboration with keyboardist Wyman Reese, who also created Gaffney’s initial single efforts. Street to Indio made an appearance in 1986; it presented ’50s rock, spirit, and dusty Bakersfield honky tonk.

Loser’s Heaven made an appearance in 1995, with creation from blue-collar stalwart Dave Alvin and efforts from Lucinda Williams and Jim Lauderdale. In 2002, he created the Hacienda Brothers with Dave Gonzalez from the Paladins, plus they documented three albums before Gaffney contracted liver organ cancer; he passed away on Apr 17, 2008.
