"This is the first-time-on-CD issue of Shrimp Boat's brilliant and long out-of-print debut LP, Speckly. Transferred and re-mastered with love from the original master tapes. Originally issued in 1989. Fifteen years later, Speckly remains a masterpiece of singularly addictive and utterly unique American song-craft (bluegrass/folk/jazz/rock pop), featuring floor-stomping dance numbers, hypnotic ballads, and throughout -- an unabashed love for the simple movement of carbon-based life forms through time and space. Driven by soul and poetry, Shrimp Boat's material celebrates the imagination, the hallucinations and the dream. Shrimp Boat was the legendary Chicago band of Sam Prekop, Eric Claridge (who both went on to form The Sea and Cake), Ian Schneller (later of Falstaff and Specimen Products), and secret weapon David Kroll."
