More Tim Eyermann and East Coast Offering with 1978's Go-Rilla LP

This album features more of that fantastic fusion we love so much with its gorgeously progressive overtones.  Side one was entirely composed by Tim and side two by guitarist Phil McCusker, Jr.  I hate to say it but the second side is more interesting and inventive and listenable.

I was really pleased to hear the very chamber and composed Pastoral Piece in the middle of side 2, reminding me a bit of Coalition's wonderful "Mindsweepers" LP:

Only unfortunate is that as you can see it's only two and a half minutes long and there is nothing similar in the whole record.  Composition by McCusker.

And stay focused-- that last track by him ("The One that Got Away") is really great to follow, with its interesting changes in melodies and chords!

  2. Thank you for this groovy Go-Rilla bizness!
    Agree with your review - dig those last McCusker tracks,
    and the 1st one's cool too...

  3. just a quick note to say I downloaded this and listened to it, and was surprised at how excellent some of these tracks were, and to be honest, I didn't know the majority of them! Particularly interesting and progressive was that track called "Little Brother"
    Thanks bro and I'm going to talk a bit more about October in an upcoming post! ;-)
