Round House are a five piece instrumental progressive rock band, with roots firmly in Camel although they do use the twin guitar interplay to fine effect and even manage to come across as Wishbone Ash at times. The debut album "Jin.Zo-Ni.N.Gen" was originally released at the end of 1978.
"Wings To Rest" (2002) was released after the band had already broken up. This was a collection of previously unavailable material that had been recorded in 1978 and 1979, and show the band in a much more jazz fusion vein. The twin guitars are still very much to the fore and any fan of good guitar will love the opener "A Red Rose And Whisper Of A Devil"…
The album box is topped of by a mammoth hardbound book featuring a 1966-1973 day-by-day chronology of Everly Brothers' recording sessions, concerts, as well as radio and television appearances by noted Everly Brothers historian, Andrew Sandoval.
