Rock and Scroll (C&C RRRS-101277) 1977
Like Danny and Lynda of the group First Revelation, Ron and Shirley can be included within the fraction of a percent of guy/gal duos that successfully deliver adventurous cutting edge music. This rare custom combines the songwriting, guitar and vocals talents of Ron Russo and Shirley Bristle with the rock backing of a trio known as Universe. Robust sturdy rockin’ sound with biting lead guitar throughout instilling west coast psych vibes of the Jefferson Airplane sort. All nine cuts are strong from hard-edged driving tracks like ‘Soul Winner’ and ‘Love Is Real’ to acoustic folkrocky ballads like ‘Comforter’. The psychedelic ‘Bad Love Is A Demon’ takes the cake with its slow yet intense 6/8 pace and wild synthesizer effects. The whole album is powerful from start to finish.
