Album Notes
Review excerpts:

"Root Deco is the brainchild of Larry Vilchek & Paul Johnson, with a selection of finely tuned musicians alongside. Musically, psychedelic sometimes bluesy rock, lively songs and power driven vocals. As with all their releases, an interesting array of songs..."

"The guitars (are) solid and ripping, the songs tight and well arranged...its full of energy. It makes me want to revisit the disc often..."

"’s well worth checking out if you like mid to late 60’s west coast psychedelic rock delivered with real conviction and high octane energy..."-"First thought, Egypt. Second thought, Led Zeppelin. Root Deco is Paul Johnson and Larry Vilchek combined with 6 and 12 stringed guitars, low tuned drums and feedback. The show stopping rhythm section and the virtuosity of the guitars shows off the influence of The Yardbirds. Easily classified as a rock, blues rock, or heavy metal band, Root Deco proves that the golden age of music occurred in the age of Led Zeppelin, The Doors, Van Morrison and Dylan..."

"Root Deco’s style is authentically vintage...worlds apart from all the fake retro bands of recent years, who rip off stuff from the 60s in order to follow fads, it is very clear from listening to Root Deco that they really practise what they preach, they really live this sort of music, not simply act it out. Truly excellent stuff..."

"Root Deco takes Psychadelic folk rock into a completely different hemisphere, bringing with them the newly acquainted space rock in the midsts of their progressive stylings...the music sounds...more complex...than from that time. The solos are about as extreme as it can get for rock...solos that walk along the walls with their colorful effects..."

"...Their music is a kind of raw psychedelic roots-rock with an authentically vintage (late 60s/early 70s) feel. As an American band, much of their folk influence comes from American folk music, but they also show a certain amount of inspiration from British folk music, and incorporate touches of this to great effect...very high quality stuff; fans of various subgenres of retro rock really ought to investigate what this band has to offer..."

"Wow-this is something else. It’s like a souped-up answer to classic Jefferson Airplane mixed with a dash of early Springsteen, a touch of Pete Droge, some scorching Kaukonen-Casady-like guitar play and a set of psychedelic bluesiana that hits the spot right from the start and never looks back...and some wicked guitar work not to mention a corking rhythm section throughout. This is phenomenal stuff..."
