Synopsis

Album Description
2008 reissue of the 1978 album Flying Dreams by Commander Cody, a Country Rock band formed in 1967 in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The band's name was inspired by 1950s film serials featuring the character Commando Cody. The band's founder and leader, George Frayne, took the stage name Commander Cody. The band's style was basically a mixture of Country music, Rockabilly, and Blues with a foundation of Boogie-Woogie piano. It became legendary for marathon live shows. In addition, they were among the very first Country Rock bands to take their cues less from Folk Rock and Bluegrass and more from hardcore barroom country of the Ernest Tubb, Ray Price style, and to incorporate Western Swing into their style along with Rockabilly and Rhythm and Blues. 11 tracks. Wounded Bird Records.
