ENCORE ECHOES A great compilation that places the bulk of The Rooks' output onto one disc. Along with the band's debut album are the tracks from the out-of-print (and almost impossible to find) A DOUBLE DOSE OF POP and CHIMES releases. 21 songs including the original radio promotional mix (as a bonus track, not listed on artwork) of "Christmas."
Who are these Rooks? Do they sing? Have they ever written a power pop classic? Do they paint with sound? Do they believe that music is the universal bond? Do they drink beer? Are they happy in this ever-changing world? Do they dig Miles Davis, Led Zeppelin, baseball and Nick Drake? Do they hate the straight-jacketed, close-mindedly thinking, cookie-cutter, creative stomping, shoot-themselves-in-the-foot, waiting for the other shoe to drop, take what you can and dash policies of the music industry? Do they love their fans? Are they from New York City? Should you check them out? The answers are yes, yes, and a shout from the rooftops yes!!! Now how much more positive can you get than that?
