ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Recorded at the legendary Abbey Road Studios and Austin's 5AM Studios, "From Austin To Abbey Road" is the result of 25 years of history, rekindled friendship, musical experience, divergent roads, and the boundless energy of four South Texas natives known as Scurvy Otto & The Rickets.

Where the hell is Kingsville?
Not only am I buying the album but if these guys ever plan a gig at Young's Pizza in Kingsville, I'm making the drive to see em live. Hell, it'll give me an opportunity to catch up with my old pal Bobby Aycock. Keep on rockin n rollin.

Scurvy Otto & The Rickets: From Austin to Abbey Road "Side 1"
This is some great sounding original music!
The CD starts off with a lively attention-grabber Track 1: "Rags to Rickets" that even serves as a kind of overture for the rest of the album during the coda. The band expresses their delight at being reunited and recording at Abbey Road of all places!
Track 2: "Tattoo" features some wailing guitar licks and great vocals.

Track 3:"Over and Over" is a wild kind of song. The Beatles, Van Morrison, Bob Dylan & The Band all come to mind! And then it goes down to Rio for Carnaval! Just when you think you've got a handle on it, it takes another turn and winds up walking on air in a dancehall or something!
Track 4:"My Baby's Gone" Sort of a reggae thing here with echoes of The Police and Peter Gabriel.

Track 5:"Rita Rita" A bit of psychedelic 60's with a singalong refrain a la Yellow Submarine!

Track 6:"The Loneliest Boy in the World" Kind of a 50's rocker with great chord changes and melody and with influences ranging from Procol Harum to The Who!

See review of "Side 2" of "From Austin to Abbey Road" elsewhere.

Scurvy Ottto & The Rickets: From Austin to Abbey Road
"Side 2" (The Abbey Road Side) Opens with
Track 7: "From Austin to Abbey Road" The title track is a hoot! I count at least six veiled references to Beatles songs in this number! See if you can find them!
Track 8: "Girl At The Sidewalk Cafe" An almost cinematic ballad that evokes Springtime on the Left Bank in Paris. Full of yearning and unrequited love.
Track 9: "Sunny Days"
This tune brings to mind McCartney's "Good Day Sunshine" from Revolver, and just a hint of The Kinks, "Sunny Afternoon" to boot.
Track 10: "Send The Letter" Beautifully recorded at Abbey Road, this one tells the story of a family waiting to hear news of their M.I.A. son in Viet Nam. Great backing vocals reminiscent of The Byrds.
Track 11: "Burnout/Revolution" A two-part medley. "Burnout" channels the story of "The Phoenix" to weave a cautionary tale about "the stones that we throw!" whilst "Revolution" is a rave-up Grateful Dead style jam. One suspects that this jam continued well after the tape stopped rolling!

Track 12:"Never Get the Blues" A raucous rocker with an intro reminiscent of the Stones' "Gimme Shelter" quickly shifts gears and sounds like a combination of "Flight 505" era Stones meets "I Should Have Known Better" Beatles at B.B. King's Blues Club!

All in All, 12 lovely, well crafted tunes with stellar production at both Abbey Road and 5:00am Studios in Austin. Let's hope we hear more from this 1st rate rock 'n' roll band!
