Too Far Gone

A Shrapnel Records release that I believe was a band created by the label to showcase the guitar playing of Craig Small. This cd has some great guitar work and phenomenal drumming. Unfortunately, I doubt you will ever find it. In the fantastic title track and later again in the seventh song, Little Sister, Craig Small's guitar riffs are more complex than many other guitarist's solos and this early work by Ray Luzier showed me more talent than I ever gave him credit for. But one album is all I got. Then Craig and the singer, Peter, disappeared. Ray went on to many other projects, and the bassist went on to join Arcade. Craig, where are you? --Scott

“Way back at the dawn of time, Adam and Eve did a terrible crime. He followed her down on lovers lane, now I'm payin' for his mistake.
