Epic Soundtracks Rise Above on LP

Epic Soundtracks' debut Rise Above is an album that fell through the cracks – in 1992, records by singer-songwriters were more likely to be ignored than they were 20 years before in the early 1970's or would be 20 years later in the early 2010's. It was certainly critically acclaimed but unnoticed by the world at large. It's time, surely, for these dozen classic songs to be re-assessed.

"Rise Above is a work of pensive autumnal fragility and of such high quality, that it would be a monumental injustice to halt the fresh flow of Epic's muse." - Melody Maker

"A gem out of left field...a bounty of delightfully anachronistic rock tunes here, in league with the best of Alex Chilton." - Billboard

"...it's even Mr Soundtracks' version of Dennis Wilson's Pacific Ocean Blue. People will come across Rise Above in ten years' time and wonder where the hell it came from. For now, here's the out-of-the-blue album of 1992." - Andrew Perry, Select Magazine
