Rain Parade / Emergency Third Rail Power Trip – Explosions In The Glass Palace CD newly remastered!

Of all the albums that emerged from L.A.'s "Paisley Underground" scene, Rain Parade's Emergency Third Rail Power Trip (1983) and its follow-up EP, Explosions in the Glass Palace (1984)  were probably the most transparent in their influences and probably the most successful in transcending them. Here was the jangle-rock of the Byrds married with the soft, downbeat vocal harmonies of early Pink Floyd, infused with a Love-like delicacy, yet the dark lyrical themes and droning twin guitar melodies made listening to Rain Parade like being on an acid trip teetering on the knife edge between pure nirvana and colossal bummer. Which, for true fans of psychedelia, was an awfully sweet spot to be.

These two classic records are back in print, both of them complete on a single CD and including "Look Both Ways," the track that was left off the original U.S. release.

Liner notes by Paisley Underground historian Pat Thomas, featuring quotes from Rain Parade founding members, guitarist Matt Piucci and bassist Steven Roback (brother to fellow founding member David Roback, now of Mazzy Star).

Even more importantly, this new single CD edition of this 'twofer' features a brand new remastering by Mike Milchner of SonicVision approved by both Matt Piucci and Steven Roback. The first remastering since the album was originally released on CD back in the '90s!

Oh, the memories...the best twin guitar band of the 80's alongside The Church and Thin White Rope. Right, I'll get down from my soapbox...
