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 9 compiles unreleased music from Terry’s archives recorded between in the 1980s-1990s.

Tracks 1-3 feature different versions of songs that appeared on the limited release Rock Force CD. ‘Star Flyers’ is a spaced out rocker with cosmic guitar leads. ‘Rock Force’ is propelled by a chunky metallic drive and is much more spaced out than the CD version. ‘Mystic Eyes’ is shorter than the CD version but has a more tripped out cosmic vibe.

‘While My Guitar Gently Screams’ is hard rocking but with melodic leads.

‘High Octane’ is a fiery rocking instrumental with a slowly intense power rock build up.

‘Boogie-Woogie JAM!’ is a stretched out hip-shakin’ jam.

‘Night People’ is a lengthy jam with lots of intense guitar with a cool dirty bluesy quality. And Terry takes off into spaaaaace…

‘Quickie Blues’ packs a short and sweet punch in less than two minutes.

‘Feeling Love-Power-Soul’ wraps up the set, veering in multiple directions and featuring killer ripping Blues leads.
