Raven presents two stunning records from one of America's original garage-rock bands, self-proclaimed Living Legends, THE FLESHTONES. Released on CD for the first time, Up-Front (1980) and Roman Gods (1982) define the band at its peak. Up-Front and Roman Gods were recorded for Miles Copeland's record label I.R.S. As a bonus a whopping nine tracks from the hard-drivin' live album Speed Connection II: The Final Chapter. Highlights include the frat-rocking 'The Girl from Baltimore', the Standells-like 'Stop Fooling Around' and their tasty cover of 'Ride Your Pony' one of the great alternative hits of the 1980s. 'Energetic, freewheelin' and street-smart, the Fleshtones are cool, smart, witty, they rock pretty hard and their music sounds great at a party' - All Music Guide.

I didn't know this was available on CD... really looking forward to hearing what it sounds like... if hasn't been messed with or messed up in the transfer to digital, then it's something that I'm definitely going to need to purchase... my vinyl is absolutely worn out after 30 years. Thanks for putting this up.
