Review: Subtle, moody shade of folk rock

“Fans of unknown ’60s psych are always searching for a rare glimpse into an era when any rock combo with a few fans could score enough studio time to immortalize a set of primitives sounds. They’ll get their fix with the Rising Storm’s Calm Before… . This band of six young gents from Massachusetts only pressed 500 LPs in 1967, just as they were graduating prep school. To this day, the album remains one of the most prized garage rock artifacts of all time (a copy sold for $6,500 in 2012).” [From Pandora review of Sundazed reissue of Calm Before by The Rising Storm. Calm Before is available on vinyl and CD from Sundazed Music, and on Apple Music.]
