Rist Rocket hail from southern California, but otherwise have a completely fuzzy backstory. The band issued its self-titled debut in 1978 on Sun West Records. Despite the cheesy artwork, Rist Rocket have been praised by obscurity hounds for many years and in some ways it is justified.
"Rist Rocket" is a decent AOR effort with great harmonies, solid performances and clear production. Though the quality of the material is uneven at times, the band does manage to evoke Boston on some of the better tracks here. Though the vocals and production are missing the flash and fire that is often associated with AOR music, the songwriting is more than enough to state the band's musical viewpoint clearly. Take a chance on this rare recording, courtesy of 'daz'. You just might dig it!
