The group ROCK CITY has never had an album released before. This ROCK CITY recording, made in 1969-1970, has never seen the light of day publicly until now. In fact, the master tape was lost in a mis-marked box for these last thirty-three years! Yet, ROCK CITY are widely known as a very influential musical force. How can this be?
ROCK CITY was the group which immediately preceeded, and contained members of, the famous group BIG STAR, which is regarded in most musical critics’ circles as the biggest influence on modern pop-rock music not named The Beatles!
Two of the members of ROCK CITY, Christopher Bell and Jody Stephens, were also members of BIG STAR. Three of the songs on this CD were also on BIG STAR’s first album, #1 RECORD, in later versions. The worldwide cult following which has shadowed BIG STAR for now over thirty years has long been aware of the early group names which were used by these players. And, in fact, this group under another of those now-famous names, ICEWATER, also appears on this CD performing one song (“Feel”). And the other two members of ROCK CITY, Thomas Dean Eubanks and Terry Manning, are also well known in Memphis and BIG STAR music folklore! Also included on the ROCK CITY CD are two songs by Thomas Dean Eubanks in solo mode, which were released as a ‘45’ single on the highly-collectible PRIVILEGE label in 1975. (Less)
