The Gravenites Cipollina Band - Monkey Medecine (1982 Great US Blues Rock - Cd Reissue - Wave)



John Cipollina (Quicksilver Messenger Service) and Nick Gravenites (Electric Flag) join forces on this release of blues and rock. Recorded in 1982, this reissue features the bonus tracks "Born In Chicago" and "Small Walk-In Box."
The music of the Gravenites-Cippolina Band was unlike any other. It can't be compared to Quicksilver Messenger Service...which band was the apple and which the orange?
