    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    The album contains fine versions of hard-rockers Don't Look Back, In The Midnight Hour and Baby Please Don't Go, alongside Arthur Lee's A Message To Pretty and a number of self-penned compositions, such as the driving I'm Comin Home and slow, sensitive numbers like Frozen Laughter and The Rain Falls Down.
    Alive Again At Andover was a reunion concert recording and is surprisingly good. Brought back together for the 15th Reunion of Andovers' Class of '67 ten of their gymnasium gig numbers are captured plus a version of Baby Please Don't Go from their first reunion stint at the Flowermarket Cafe, Boston in October '81. The original line-up is intact bar Todd Cohen whose place is filled by the ubiquitous Andy Paley. Unlike other reunion LPs which cash in on past glories this one stands up well on its own and, although these guys had done nothing in the music sphere since graduation, the spirit and fun of those heady days is reincarnated.

    In 1999, the original sextet again minus Todd Cohen, but with Aram Heller (Mr. Stanton Park) bounding into the bassist role, had the chance to appear on the same bill as Boston legends The Lost and The Remains. The latter were one of the 'Storm's inspirations of course, as their cover of Don't Look Back testifies. Naturally they grabbed the opportunity with aplomb, indeed they played for free.
    Despite some pre-gig nerves they proved to be the perfect openers of this historic event on Saturday 20th March at the Paradise Club in Beantown and they set the tone for what turned out to be a magical and memorable evening. Opening with their own I'm Coming Home, the half-hour set comprised many of the upbeat numbers from their LP. The Rockin' Ramrods' Bright Lit Blue Skies, Signed T.T. and Baby Please Don't Go went down very well - another original She Loved Me with its Charlie Rockwell Hammond organ solo and great vocal arrangements was outstanding. It was a performance full of fun, vibrance and enthusiasm which quickly infected and was appreciated by the audience. Having played their part, the buoyant members joined the 600+ throng with as much eagerness to await the appearances of The Lost and The Remains. ~ (Max Waller / Vernon Joynson)
