How does Light In The Attic constantly put out such great releases?! I have begun to trust that LITA will deliver greatness with every release they issue, and Who Do You See… provides more support for my faith.
This release costs only $17, and as such, the strictly limited release of 500 copies is due to be sold out at any time!
The album is currently on pre-sale, and will be released on 9/12/13.
Originally from Terre Haute Indiana, members of Raven played and toured with bands such as Reo Speedwagon, Cheap Trick, Dan fogelberg etc.. George Phelps who had joined The â€śCarnationsâ€ť met up with â€śGoliathâ€ť members in a studio and through a myriad of circumstances, teaming up with drummer Robert Wolff (ex â€śMicahâ€ť) these musicians merged into â€śRavenâ€ť in Louisville KY in late 1972. From this moment on, the band toured extensively through 24 states non-stop for the next 4 years before recording this material in 1976, unreleased until today.
The material was recorded in Atlanta Georgia at a studio called â€śThe Sound Pitâ€ť Memories of going into the studio at night and working until the sun came up and feeling like I was floating on a cloud because it sounded so good (Doug- Ravenâ€™s lead singer) Soon after the recording was completed, Raven got a record deal with Capricorn records. 2 weeks later, they went bankrupt. The tapes were subsequently destroyed in a fire.
With Disco sound moving in in the mid seventies and with the bankrupcy of Capicorn records, Raven was literalylike fish out of water, and slowly but steadily what had felt like the beginning of something unique, was lost.
Musically the album relies on a hard driving Progressive sound with a very rhythmic approach filled with virtuoso guitar & keyboard solos as well as pulsating bass lines in a hard-rock backing. Think Primus meets Emerson, Lake & Palmer with a touch of Yes, Deep Purple, Rush and Dream Theater. ..Features Robert Wolff previously with Micah and currently with Corvus Stone. Finally Who do you see sees the light of day 37 years after being recorded.
