Groove Yard - Urban Tales (1994)

We're about to head into a big mass of CD posts from 20 years ago, but first we have a few others to catch up on. Like this one, which we found in the basement of Melodiya Records, new as the day it was made - in shrink wrap, even!

We were about to completely discount Groove Yard on the basis of their name, until Gene pointed out that drummer Bruce Livingstone was also half of the Bittermen. So, we gave it a listen, and it's not at all what we expected - no funk metal here, this is 90's alternative with a foot firmly planted in power pop. Which probably makes sense, since two members also played with Bobby McAllister.

Get your... groove on?
