The Ring was formed in 1989 by Pianist & Keyboardist - Chris Spriggle, Guitarist - Tim Urfer as a progressive rock band. Singer/Songwriter - Doug Boggs joined next and this trio began writing the initial tunes. Soon after, a former bandmate of Tim's, Drummer - Devin Russell and long time friend Bassist - Rob Fordyce joined to complete this first incarnation of The Ring. We enjoyed many local SF Bay Area gigs, a small tour, radio play and put out this CD in 1992. However shortly after this release, The Ring dis-banded so members could pursue other interests.
The original lineup: Doug Boggs - Vocals & Percussion, Rob Fordyce - Bass & Vocals, Devin Russell - Drums & Percussion, Chris Spriggle - Piano,Keys & Vocals, Tim Urfer - Guitars & Vocals.
The album also includes special guests: Cynthia Shiloh (vocals) and from Zulu Spear (vocals): Sechaba Mokoena, Gideon Bendile, Motome Somo, Ron Van Leewaarde and Matthew Lacques (Mandolin)
Engineered by the always encouraging Larry Schalit
