Album Notes
FROM THE SHELVES OF SOUNDSCAPE STUDIO - A collection of rare and unreleased recordings selected from The Rooks' Soundscape Studio era. This now defunct New York City recording studio was home to The Rooks between 1990 - 1996 before closing its doors forever. Included here are alternate takes and/or drastically different mixes of such band classics as "Reasons," "Music Sound Sensation," "In A Pinwheel Spin" and many more. The booklet contains extensive liner notes explaining details for each selection. 18 tracks. A must for collectors.

*****BAND BIO******

Who are these Rooks? Do they sing? Have they ever written a power pop classic? Do they paint with sound? Do they believe that music is the universal bond? Do they drink beer? Are they happy in this ever-changing world? Do they dig Miles Davis, Led Zeppelin, baseball and Nick Drake? Do they hate the straight-jacketed, close-mindedly thinking, cookie-cutter, creative stomping, shoot-themselves-in-the-foot, waiting for the other shoe to drop, take what you can and dash policies of the music industry? Do they love their fans? Are they from New York City? Should you check them out? The answers are yes, yes, and a shout from the rooftops yes!!! Now how much more positive can you get than that?

A must have
After having all the other Rooks CDs, this one is great for all of the out takes and rare extras. If you have the official stuff, this CD is a must. The alternate version of Reasons and the Elliott Easton session out take are worth the price of this CD for me.

Randy Pike

Awesome collection of some obscure power pop studio outtakes
I think this collection is essential to anyone into power pop, or the craft and process of songwriting in general. For a fan of The Rooks, it's just a great glimpse of some really cool recordings, for those of us who weren't actually there.
