The Jungle Bush Beaters' debut album Distant Drums was recorded at Fat Rabbit Recording Studio in Forth Smith as a demo for venues and clubs, and later released in 2000 when the band decided to put it on the market. The music is described in reviews as "rock'n roll with a bluesy feel." Included is a cover of "Rain Down Tears," recorded by Levon Helm for his RCO All-Stars album.
