The Grown-Ups

by Mark Scott

This 5-song EP is a little bit Adult Contemporary and a little bit AOR. The "Soft Side" has a nice ballad and a jazzy tune with a striking female lead. The "Hard Side" songs have an arena rock feel. The bonus song is a cute folk ditty - "for the kids".

Album Notes
Originally released in 1986, The Grown-ups was just a name. The talented players here were several members of the Punk/New Wave Tampa Bay band Rich Rags (we were actually neither Punk or New Age - we were Alternative before the term existed). These and other musicians devoted their time and talent to help produce a four-song, 12" 45rpm EP on David Peel's Orange Records label. Copies of that vinyl still exist, perhaps we'll see about making them available through CDBaby in future.

The album unapologetically encompasses multiple genres. It garnered some favorable reviews, got radio play and was in stores in at least seven major markets across the US, without record company promotion. The lead guitar work is wonderfully crafted, it alone is worth the price of the download.

Other musicians on "The Grown-ups" include John Comerford (Matt & Mark, Rich Rags, Jennifer Kravassi, Motorpsychic, ATG), Nancy Scott (Matt & Mark, Rich Rags, The Clearwater Chorus), Jeff Levy (Imagine, Rich Rags, David Peel and the Lower East Side), Gerry Rose (John Lee Hooker, Freddie King, Big Mama Thornton), John Donniacuo (Rich Rags, Second Helping), and Kacy Ross (Rich Rags, Deloris Telescope).

Ironically, the bonus track was written before, but recorded after the other tracks. "Hobo Joe" was due to be a children's show theme song, had production not been abandoned.

The Grown-ups never actually played a live show with this line-up, but rather used the name because the author was reluctant to call it the "Mark Scott Band". However, in 2017 with several solo releases - most notably 2013's "Elevator" Instrumental CD - Mark has chosen to release it in his name, but of course keep the title (from a Rich Rags song).

Mark and co-producer John Comerford are planning a new, diverse project for 2017, parlaying money from sales into a CD of much larger scope. Thanks for noticing. Here's hoping you have a great life. Rock and Roll.

Mark and John
