Lost Luggage - demo (1990)

This is a follow up to an entry I did for Lost Luggage this spring, specifically their 1991 Chateau Relaxeau CD.  The tape I'm presenting today bears a copyright date of one year prior, and precisely foreshadows what they had coming down the pike.  Much akin to the last band featured on these pages (Baxters), L/L fall short of pioneer status, but get by just fine with both luster and grit.  Think Toad the Wet Sprocket or even Crowded House if either of them managed to eke out a steady volley of power chords.  "Rollercoaster" and "A Different View" would eventually materialize on Chateau.  Overall, an almost-all-the-way-there thumbs up.

01. In Spite of the Rain
02. A Different View
03. The Great Wall
04. Rollercoaster
05. Here She Comes
06. Letter From Uncle

Argh! This file has been deleted due to inactivity. Do you still have a link for this? I lost my copy many years ago.

Thanks! Enjoying my moment. :) Miss this band. Whatever happened to Griff and the rest? (Can't remember their names.) Met them when they came to Muscatine, IA, to do an interview with my friend Mary on Off the Beaten Track (KFMH) Truly a treasure trove of tunes.
