Warren Winter's Band - As I Was (Rare 1984 US Private Biker Folk)

Rare and excellent Biker Psych Folk LP (Justen O'Brien meets Circuit Rider) privately released in 1984 on Shovster Records.

Under the pseudonym of Warren Winters, Edward Winterhalder formed the Warren Winter's Band in the 1980s after fronting the Connecticut Dust Band during the late 1970s and early 1980s. Playing guitar and singing lead vocals, he utilized a group of studio musicians and his childhood friend Kurt Newman (drums) to record the 'As I Was' debut album in 1984 on the Shovster Records label. In 1988, the 'Crossbar Hotel' album was recorded at Grace Recording Studios in Connecticut with Warren Winters (guitar & lead vocals), Andy Rutman (guitar), Kurt Newman (drums), Lou Sabetta (keyboards) and Mario Figueroa (bass). On both albums, the song writing credits noted that all songs were written by Edward Winterhalder.

All three albums - the 2 Warren Winter's Band LPs and the Connecticut Dust Band - are little jewels !
