The Grays: Ro Sham Bo (Day 11 of Album: 365 Mkll)


(Connection to previous album: Jack Joseph Puig engineered and co-produced Spilt Milk.  He produced Ro Sham Bo.  Jon Brion played guitar on Spilt Milk and was a member of The Grays)

Found this record in my deep dive of the Jellyfish family tree.  The original Jellyfish guitar player (Jason Falkner) and the fill-in guitar player (Jon Brion) teamed up to form this band in 1994.  They only lasted one album partly because of egos (how many songs of theirs would be on the record, etc). The sound of this record isn't as awesome as the Jellyfish albums but budget was probably a big issue.  Most of the songs are great and a couple are phenomenal.
