Cosmic Rough Riders - Deliverance
If you have heard the Cosmic Rough Riders "Enjoy the Melodic Sunshine", "Pure Escapism",or "Too Close To See Far" and have found something you liked then you must get this album. Think any of those records, subtract a little sunshine and add a little anger and it comes out just right. This is a spectacular album--the Cosmics 2nd and very limited release being re-released on their own Measured Records. If you have never heard the Cosmics before think a Beatles obsessed British band doing the West Coast pop thing and doing it better than everybody else. "Deliverance" belongs in all well-rounded collections.
