Raven - Who Do You See lp (Golden Pavilion)


"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 CARNATIONS met up with GOLIATH members
in a studio and through a myriad of circumstances, teaming up with
drummer ROBERT WOLFF (ex MICHA) these musicians merged into RAVEN 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 The Sound Pit. Soon
after the recording was completed, Raven got a record deal with
Capricorn records. Two 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.
Strictly limited to 500 copies in high quality old-style tip-on jacket
and obi." - Golden Pavilion
