Album Notes
The Nomads&Friends EVOLUTION cd is a collection of songs done by The Nomads and some members of The Nomads recording songs with other artists. The Nomads were based in Mount Airy, N.C. and were one of the top groups in an area that probably had eighteen to twenty groups within a 50 mile radius. All of the songs on the cd are original. The first four or five songs were recorded in a radio station recording studio(such as it was). They are not the most "polished" songs as they were done in one or two takes and considering where they were done. The other songs were done in some professional recording studios and a few were done in a friends apartment. These songs were considerably better produced and the quality is therefore much better. We played to audiences numbering between 250 to 3000 or more people. We played at nightclubs, VFW buildings, fraternity parties and some outdoor concerts. Some of our records have ended up in Italy, the Netherlands and Australia. One of the songs on the cd "Thoughts Of A Madman" has been covered by a band in Australia, one in the Netherlands and a band in New York in the U.S. The song "Thoughts Of A Madman" also was on Duke Universitys radio playlist as late as November of 2007. All of the recordings we released sold out and the last song on the cd is an up-tempoed version of a really nice medium tempo song that we had recorded earlier and the up-tempoed version was released nationally on Double Shot Records located in Los Angeles, CA. That record climbed to about the 120 mark on Billboard Magazines top 200 singles and was in the top five most requested airplay songs on a number of radio stations across the United States. Style-wise I think we had somewhat of a unique sound and we wrote a number of other songs that we never got around to recording. At any rate we had a great time and I hope everyone who buys this cd enjoys it.

WOW---My thanks to the person that turned me on to this!
I'm totally re-living my teen years listening to this talented and creative NC garage band. Am planning to share this one with my 23 year old son who is into 60's and 70's vinyl. To the person that turned me on to this, I say---this is wowing good!

fabio fabiani

pure genius punk rock!!!!
Well, these guys were really ahead of their time, you can easy understand it from the first listen to their '67 classic "toughts of a madman": more punk than any Sex Pistols recordings, more raw and savage than any Nirvana wimpy CDs and still today I don't know a band who play as wild as the Nomads from North Carolina! But all their mid-60s stuff is great and I like a lot also the ballad "how many times", the frat punker "not for me", the organ/fuzz killer "from zero down", the raw punk sounds of "I'm gonna make it" ecc...this cd is a MUST!

Keith Hall

CD sounds real good. I played the bass with Bruce on "Play on Country Music" and "Willowgreen #2" We were called the Shotgun Band. Stumbled across it on the internet last night. The songs are great and fits in, in that great era of late 60's and early 70's. We played the Davis Arcade in Mt. Airy, NC, Hillsville, Va VFW, and Fairview Ruritan, Galax, Va

Dean Holder

These are some great and not so great songs of an early "punk" band.
Listening to these songs takes me back to the days when a band started out with rather "raw" songs and then developed into writers of great but little known original songs. Some perfection lacking but the energy and enthusiam fantastic!!! A MUST HAVE!!!!!!

I think that this cd is an awesome cd! I especially enjoyed Thoughts OF A Madman, Plastic Year, and Willowgreen. All of the songs to me are worth while for anyone to listen to and have. One last note, Not For Me is one of my absolute faviorites. I loved the beat and the way the singer sounded. Again, this is a must have cd!
