ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Tie Dyed Sunset and how it all began...
At the local junior college, some guys sit around a table in the student center.
They’re long-haired and scruffy and talking about rock ‘n roll. It’s the late 1960s
and they’re still hung over from the British Invasion of a few years earlier.
John, Paul, George and Ringo changed the trajectory of popular music, and these guys wanted to get on board.
Deep in their souls, they know they’re rockers and they’ve been honing their musical chops for years.
And so begins a remarkable and tortuous journey in which these local boys known as the band Flood,
set their sights on stardom, and almost … almost … almost make it to the big-time. Just starting out and
playing the same venues, the boys in Flood become friends with the Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd and other
big southeastern regional acts. But the Flood band is different.. Bob Herrin on guitars is using one of the 1st guitar
synthesizers developed in Europe while Rory Knapton's drum set becomes a mass of percussional energy from orchestrational
tympani drums and gongs all the way down to the lilting tones of vibes and even Don Berg on the bass end, uses another
european Synthi Hi Fly for his instrument. The band, then as a 4 piece with Jay Wetzel on keys which cover acoustic piano,
organ, Arp synthesizers and even a Mellotron head out in July 1970 where they wind up in a small town called Byron up near Macon, the site of Alex Cooley’s Second Atlanta International Pop Festival, and they play the free stage for a week, entertaining
the crews that are setting up for the headliners, Jimi Hendrix and an upstart southern group of friends called the Allman Brothers
Band. After the festival, they follow the Brothers to Love Valley, N.C., for another festival that draws 50,000
(200,000 had showed up at Byron). They hang out with the Brothers, they play some venues in Atlanta -- the General Store,
the Twelfth Gate, the Candy Store -- and their popularity grows. “We would literally sell out Chastain Park with three day’s
publicity,” Knapton says. “We were that popular. We had an entourage of 8 to 12 school buses full of hippies that would
follow us everywhere we went.” There was a guy in Atlanta around that time who was starting up a brand-new record label
called GRC Records and he strikes a deal with Flood. At GRC, they made a soundtrack Blood of the Dragon, a movie produced by William Diehl, of Sharkey's Machine fame. Flood was recognized with great reviews in The Hollywood Review and other movie magazines.
Flood composed a rock opera Dear Little Man that they performed as a theatrical event at the Jekyll Island Amphitheater.
The event sold out for three nights. The band rehearses, writes, and gets ready to record their first album. They’re about to board a flight to Jamaica, where they have booked studio time, when the bottom falls out. GRC founder Mike Thevis, also one of the biggest porn distributors on the East Coast, is arrested for murder.

And that’s where Flood’s ascendancy ends. But not the dream … and not the music.
Knapton, Herrin and Knapton’s brother, Ricky, record a critically acclaimed recommended album of the week in Billboard Magazine called Robert, Rory and Ricky that’s pressed in blue transparent vinyl. Later, Knapton leads a group called Midnight Clear to a win on the CBS Morning Show’s Battle of the Bands and takes a group known as Rats In The Attic to Europe to play the famed Caveran Club of Beatles fame..
They all keep on playing, together and apart. After years away, Knapton, Herrin and Berg have reunited on St. Simons Island, Georgia (Wetzel is ensconced in the Florida Keys) and they’re playing some of their old songs, and some new ones. They are once again a band.
A band they've renamed "Tie Dyed Sunset"

They’ve enjoyed successful careers in and outside of music, raised families, survived life-threatening illnesses, and through it all,
they’ve kept the dream alive. This CD album has 11 new songs which almost defy a genre classification.. from pop-rock to beautiful movie style ballads to almost country style dobro tunes AND the boys have included 4 bonus tracks that were recorded by the Flood band in 1972 which showcases they're early influences into symphonic rock opera orchestration.

We know you'll enjoy Tie Dyed Sunset
