RAYNE- S/T LP
Frank Saucier and his three brothers formed Rayne in 1977, located in a New Orleans suburb. They recorded the album with good home equipment with no overdubs. The original album ("the black album," as they called it), released in 1979, was only pressed 300 times and during a moment of frustration, they took a box of the album and shot it with a shotgun, making this a hard collector-find, in the truest sense. The music is first class psych rock -- strong compositions with great guitars and vocals -- everything just right and something you would expect from bayou tough-guys -- pure Southern spirit.
