The Gross Prophet was the band that Redlands, California relied on for public and private events from 1970 to 1994. However, they were not just a bunch of local guys - all of the members of The Gross Prophet were seasoned veterans of surf and rock bands in California. This 50-track, double CD collection features tracks recorded by Gross Prophet members before, during and after their time in the band (1962-1999).
In addition to 23 unreleased tracks recorded by The Gross Prophet for promotion purposes, lots of rare tracks by The Genteels, The Tornadoes, The Truants, Never So Few (all unreleased), The Insects (featuring well-known guitar maker Wayne Charvel), The Light, Bob Summerour (two unreleased tracks), Rubicon, Gerald Sanders (also unreleased), Jon & The Nightriders, Mike Methane And The Blue Flames (all unreleased) and Roy Swedeen are featured. Even the released tracks are either hard to find on CD or have never been digitized.
Featuring "Moon Dawg" (The Tornadoes), "I'm Gonna Take Care Of Everything" (a #28 hit for Rubicon) and Gerald Sanders' "Georgia Rain" (written by Jody Reynolds).
