Build A Raft

***The legendary GIBSON BROS. need no introduction. "COUNTRYā€¯ JEFF EVANS, DON HOWLAND, ELLEN HOOVER and DAN DOW put the flag on top of the whole "twisted versions of obscure country and blues songs" hill. What we have in this Build A Raft double-LP is a reissue of the earliest of the Gibson Bros recordings. The first LP is a meticulous master for vinyl that follows the original Old Age/No Age cassette format. It consists of a studio side that was recorded many long years ago in the village of Harrisburg by MIKE REP and TOMMY JAY, and a live side that features material recorded in '85 at Bernie's as well as excerpts from a grade school Rock'n Roll assembly at Avondale Elementary. The second LP is made up of six bonus songs from the Harrisburg sessions, three of which were released on their rare first 7-inch on the band's own OKra records, the other ones were unreleased until now. Put all of this together you get the definitive picture of the Gibsons pre-Homestead / SFTRI / Siltbreeze / ITR career! This is where their long and storied journey began... legendary stuff we're peddlin' here. Gatefold includes some never before seen pictures of the Avondale Elementary performance. Both were LPs mastered for vinyl by JOHN HULL at Musicol recording on his '44 Scully lathe.
