Terry Brooks first came to prominence with his 1973 debut LP, the heavy rocking progressive-psychedelic masterpiece ‘Translucent World’, privately released on his own Outer Galaxie Publishers label. Terry was active releasing albums, singles, and performing live throughout the 1970s, 80s and 90s. He remained staunchly independent through the years, having declined several major label contracts. Terry declined these opportunities, in part, because he never wanted to part ways with the members of his Strange band. And, crucially, he was committed to creating a more cosmic brand of rock n roll, which will be apparent to his long time fans.
The ‘Treasures and Gems from the Treasure Chest’ series has been launched to make available unreleased and little heard music from Terry’s massive archives. Each volume in the series seeks to showcase the many sides of this multi-faceted artist.
Treasure Chest Volume 8 compiles unreleased music from Terry’s archives recorded between the late 1970s-early 1990s and showcases his talents as a Blues guitarist. From pure heart wrenching classic Blues to more rocking numbers, the team members all agreed that these tracks come together to create an out of this world theme set.
