The title Scraps implies an album of toss-offs, throwaways, and unrealized tidbits. For the young NRBQ, however, the word Scraps suggested their unique creative process: a deranged yet concise melding of diverse influences, instruments, and moods. Originally released in 1972, Scraps stands as the first NRBQ album featuring the venerable frontline of Terry Adams, Joey Spampinato, and Al Anderson - who joined the band just days before recording commenced. From Joey's spry walking bass on Terry's classic 'Howard Johnson's Got His Hojo Working' to Terry's disarming toy piano solos on 'Only You,' Scraps is the blossoming of America's foremost post-modern popsters. With three bonus tracks added - including Joey's concert staple 'Trouble at the Henhouse' - this new edition of Scraps boasts sharp remastering, a new liner essay by John DeAngelis, and a host of NRBQ favorites, such as 'Magnet,' 'Ain't It All Right,' and 'New Tune.' 24-bit mastering. Produced by Eddie Kramer.
