Remember THE POLYPHONIC SPREE? That choral 20+ band out of Dallas, Texas.
They released six albums between 2002 and 2014 with Together We’re Heavy (2004)
as their best, must-hear one. And live, as I experienced myself, they were truly something-I’ve-never-seen-and-heard before. An overwhelming, spiritual gospel happening, nothing
less than awesome. An on cloud nine dance and sing celebration. Ecstasy in motion.
Early September the collective released a 6-track covers EP titled We Hope It Finds You Well with their interpretations of songs by Abba, Wings, The Association, Monkees, Rush
and rock icons The Stones.
SHE’S A RAINBOW is the one they picked from The Rolling Stones‘ gigantic catalog.
One of their best crackers to my ears with that sublime, repetitive piano melody.
It sounds as if The Spree just copied that original piano play, but they gave the
Infectious humdinger their own touch with their uplifting, soulful harmonies.
