3.0 out of 5 stars This is great, but give me the 'Beyond the Sunset' instead, 31 Jan. 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Emergency Third Rail Power Trip/Explosions in Glass Place (Audio CD)
The Rain Parade are well known as the best of the 'paisley underground' bands, who combined Us Punk Rock influences with those of psychedelia in early 80s LA.
This CD combines their first album and a mini-LP and would be enjoyed by anyone who likes the idea of Television meeting The Byrds, or for anyone too young to consider such groups unhip, The Stone Roses crossed with The Doors in their lighter moments (witness 'No Easy Way Down' for the Kreiger/Manzarek influences).
However, better versions of several of the songs on here can be found (or could be if the record company would get around to reissuing it) on 'Beyond The Sunset', their live in Japan album from 1984 that sees the group putting a bit more life into the playing, not to mention members of Green On Red guesting on the Parade's version of the GOR classic 'Cheap Wine', which is a brilliant song. Are you listening record companies - get 'beyond The Sunset' out on CD again PLEASE !
