The Light Of Day - The Single

Jump to “More items of this artist”

Re-Issue des Compilation-Albums der BRANDOS aus dem Jahr 1995, erstmals auf Vinyl erhältlich, limitert auf 300 Stück und handnummeriert.

Seit nunmehr über 30 Jahren begeistern The Brandos mit handgemachtem Rock & Roll, der bluesgetränkte Gitarrenattacken enthält, gemischt mit Country- und Folk-Anleihen, die tief in der amerikanischen Musiktradition verwurzelt sind.

The Brandos, die von dem Film "The Wild One" derart begeistert waren, dass sie sich nach dessen Hauptdarsteller Marlon Brando benannten, formierten sich 1986 in der Besetzung David Kincaid (voc, g, mand, banjo), Ed Rupprecht (g), Larry Mason (dr) und Ernie Mendillo (b, voc) in New York City.

1995 war das Compilation-Album The Light Of Day – The Single auf CD erschienen, das akustische Versionen bekannter Brandos-Songs inklusive Coverversionen wie „Twenty Flight Rock“, „Green River“, „Sinister Purpose“ oder das Del-Lords-Stück „Cheyenne“, gesungen von Scott Kempner, enthielt. Der Zusatz „The Single“ mag etwas irreführend klingen, da 10 Songs auf der CD enthalten waren.


Re-Issue of the BRANDOS compilation album from 1995, available on vinyl for the first time, limited to 300 copies and handnumbered.

THE BRANDOS owe their name to their love of Marlon Brando. Their fans know them as one of the most vital American live rock bands of the 20th century’s final decades. THE BRANDOS, known for timeless classics like “The Solution” and “Gettysburg” and their straight and true rock sound, were founded in 1986 with the line-up of David Kincaid (voc, g, mand, banjo), Ed Rupprecht (g), Larry Mason (dr) and Ernie Mendillo (b, voc) in New York City.

In 1995 the compilation album The Light Of Day – The Single had been released on CD which contains acoustic versions of popular Brandos songs plus covers as „Twenty Flight Rock“, „Green River“, „Sinister Purpose“ or the Del Lords number „Cheyenne“ with Scott Kempner on lead vocals. The album title „The Single“ was a but irritating as ten songs are included on the CD.
