CD Reviews

Old College Avenues

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Incredible to find this memorable group on CD at last! As a student at the University of Illinois in "Chambana" back in the 70's, The Ship had the best concerts ever (right next to Harry Chapin, another coffee house alum). Their live performances were terrific, as they sprinkled their concerts with advertising jingles they recorded for Rice Krispies, etc. Don't hesitate to buy this CD -- and if you can find it, buy "Tornado", as well."
Good Show Wounded Bird!

"We're pleased that Wounded Bird Records has re-released "The Ship" after all these years and done such a good job on the audio. This album will always be special for us, as it was the beginning for a group of young guys who became lifelong friends through our music. I had just turned twenty years old when we traveled out to Elektra Studios to record "The Ship" and in many ways, we grew up together over the next few years, traveling around the country in a beat up Chevy van and playing concerts. Not quite as glamorous as sailing the seas on a beautiful boat, but it was, for the most part, an awful lot of fun.
The group still manages to get together once a year or so to play and it's still as much fun as it was back in the beginning. Visit us at [...] for information about the band, past and present, including three additional CDs of our music with around 40 previously unreleased cuts that sat untouched for better than 30 years in boxes in a basement.

....and just like in the old days....if I want a copy to send to my mom and dad, I have to buy it myself. Some things about the record business never change......

Enjoy,
T.B."
