HIGHWAY - HIGHWAY

NEW LP

REISSUE

 

The history of the band Highway began in 1965 when two Fairmont bands, The Pacers and The Corvairs, joined together and formed The Epicureans. Eventually, The Epicureans became Highway (in 1972).

The bands lone album, "HIGHWAY," was recorded in Iowa in the spring of 1975; only 500 copies were pressed and released in the mid-west. In 1985, Highway guitarist Steve Murphy got his first call from a collector in the Chicago area, who expressed sincere interest and praise.

After several offers to re-release the album, the bands own CD version of their own album, including four previously unreleased bonus tracks, is now complete.

From Acid Archives:

"Unusual power trio album that's one of the best of its kind. It's hard but not heavy; there's not a single distorted guitar to be heard. What you get instead are intricate, complex riffs and hooks a-plenty in which speed and agility take precedence over pure noise.

The drums and bass compensate by being loud and frantic. At times it appears that they're overreaching their grasp, but the feeling of them teetering over the edge of a cliff is actually kind of exhilarating. The two instrumentals are especially hot... the rumbling drums on "Just To Be With You," for example, sound something like a landslide.

That's mostly a good thing... It simply appears that these guys were doing their own thing without caring whether they fit into any genre or if they appealed to the kids. Great album." [AM] and also from Acid Archives: "One of the better finds, to my ears, guitar-driven rural rock/west coast trio similar to the harder sides of Homer or the melodic sides of Morly Grey.

Opens with two killer tracks and a good 2/3 of the LP is excellent... The LP was recorded in Iowa and remained unknown among psych fans until the 1990s.
