Well Thawed Out
The Strolling Scones are a 60's influenced pop/rock/psychedelic vocal band. Take 1 part early Beatles, add a shot of Kinks, Mamas & Papas, and a splash of Rolling Stones, sprinkle with a dash of Syd Barrett, sieve through Motown and the Jefferson Airplane, Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix, add a pinch of early funk a la Sly and the Family Stone and James Brown, and voila - The Strolling Scones SOUND (check out 'Paradise - It's Just Around The Corner'). This, their debut CD features all 5 members of the band singing intricate vocal arrangements and playing funkingruvin' rhythm and blazing guitar licks. In keeping with the 60''s vibe, this album was recorded analog, using as much tube gear as possible. A sprinkling of instruments from the era (sitar guitar, Rickenbacker 12 string, brass & woodwind instruments, backwards guitar leads) complete the retro, yet fresh and original sound. Half of the songs are new never-before-released originals. The other half are Scones' renditions of great, but seldom heard songs from the 1960's.
