Product Description

Co-produced by the legendary Jack Casady and Stacy Parrish, 52-Week High captures the spirit and energy of Silicon Valley's own Flying Other Bros. Four years of live shows and tie dyes have allowed the FOBs have built a loyal following . . . and release a CD that is as memorable as it is fun. With the able support of Pete Sears -- who has since joined the band -- on keyboards and accordion, the FOBs serve up eleven original tunes that are staples of their live repertoire. The song writing and production on 52-Week High demonstrate the range and talent that the FOBs have only been able to share with live audiences until now. From the trippy Johnny B. to the jazzy By My Side to the anthemic Tell Me It's Okay, 52-Week High showcases the FOBs at their rocking best!

Venture capitalists turned musicians the Flying Other Brothers continue their double life with a fourth album that finds them continuing on their breezy time travel back to the Summer of Love. With tunes like the earnestly anthemic "Tell Me I'm Okay" ("I need to know what makes life real / What is the essence of my being?") or the comic blues "Clueless," the listener might think that tie-dye was still in style. But the former Grateful Dead cover band has an expanded vision, adding delicate shadings and harmonies that recall Quicksilver Messenger Service and some ethereal ballads that recall early Jefferson Airplane, which may have everything to with Airplane bassist Jack Casady's production, as well as the presence of onetime Starship keyboardist Pete Sears. The musicianship is honed to a much keener edge than on earlier albums, at time evoking the Allman Brothers' jazzy jams. These guys are just about ready to give up their day jobs. --Jaan Uhelszki

Format: Audio CD
The best Flying Other Brothers album of this or any other year--though that is not to say that they can not still surpass this one. Clearly their stock has moved from the "value" to the "growth" category, though their earnings may not be multiple of anything (and they may not care much--find about their Pay it Forward program).
This album has a much more sophisticated sound, songwriting, and vastly improved vocals and production. The lyrics, always witty, have more variety and zing. As has been indicated in some of the other reviews, the uncredited piece five minutes after the last cut lets "Dubya" have it right where it hurts. No one can savage a Yalie like another Yalie, and there's a deep Blue streak in the band.
Besides that one, my favorite is "Serenity the Angel", which boasts an attractive chord sequence and tasteful female vocals--a clue to the solution the FOB's have come up with to the previously much-too-Dead (as in Grateful) vocal patterns: spread the wealth. There are 6 or 7 different lead vocalists on this album.

I loved this album as soon as I started listening. It reminded me of driving up Mt Tamalpais in 1967, stoned in an old school bus to hear the Grateful Dead play. I started ripping songs onto my iTunes immediately. But when the album ended, it didn't really end. Three minutes after "On My Way" ended, on came a song that does what Tom Daschle and Dick Gephardt ought to be doing; it's a song that tells the actual honest-to-God truth about the illegitimate, appointed "president" and how someone so undeserving and unaccomplished managed to weasel his way into the White House. This musical story of the life of George Bush is the best political song since Country Joe & the Fish and it alone is worth the price of this CD. (Normally if I find 2 songs to rip on a new CD I consider myself lucky. I got 5 off this album!!)

This is the best of the Flying Other Brothers CDs. Great rythym and harmonies. The album opener "TELL ME IT'S OKAY" sets the tone for a special musical journey into a soft rock high. It's refreshing to hear original music with heart and soul. Fabulous find.
