The members of Raisins In The Sun have worked with some of the most influential artists in popular music: Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, The Doors, Aretha Franklin, Big Star, Cyndi Lauper, Radiohead, Hole - the list goes on and on. But when bassist Harvey Brooks, producer/keyboardist Jim Dickinson, producers Paul Kolderie and Sean Slade, drummer Winston Watson, and singer-songwriters Jules Shear and Chuck Prophet got together in a Tucson, Arizona recording studio last year, there were no expectations. There were no songs. There were no plans. 'We just wanted to see what would happen,' said Jules Shear. Maybe it was the lack of expectations; maybe it was something in the desert air. Whatever the reason, these seven industry vets left Tucson with an album of roots-influenced rock and pop that they'd written and recorded in less than two weeks. Raisins in the Sun is remarkable not only for its strong songs and performances, but also for the sound of musicians making music in a spontaneous and uncalculated setting. Produced by Raisins In The Sun. Includes: 'All the Way,' 'Old Times Again,' 'Candy from a Stranger,' 'Post Apocalyptic Observations,' 'You Can Let Go Now,' 'String Bean,' 'I Taught Her Everything,' 'Chicken Fried,' 'Nobody Loses,' 'Glenn and Stone'
