A Modern Day Masterpiece!
The General Store is one Tam Johnstone - son of Davey Johnstone (full-time guitarist for Elton John since 1972).
MOUNTAIN RESCUE is the anticipated follow-up to Local Honey, the critically-acclaimed debut from The General Store (2002, Not Lame Recordings). This new album brilliantly combines lush Beach Boys and CSNY-style harmonies, the West Coast country of The Flying Burrito Brothers and Beatles-inspired melodies to create an album that can only be described as a true masterpiece.
Any fan of West Coast rock 'n' roll will LOVE this record from start to finish...guaranteed!
