"Originally from Terre Haute Indiana, members of Raven played and toured with bands such as Reo Speedwagon, Cheap Trick, Dan Fogelberg etc.. George Phelps who had joined The Carnations met up with Goliath members in a studio and through a myriad of circumstances, teaming up with drummer Robert Wolff (ex Micah) these musicians merged into Raven in Louisville KY in late 1972. From this moment on, the band toured extensively through 24 states non-stop for the next four years before recording this material in 1976, unreleased until today. The material was recorded in Atlanta Georgia at a studio called The Sound Pit. Soon after the recording was completed, Raven got a record deal with Capricorn records. Two weeks later, they went bankrupt. The tapes were subsequently destroyed in a fire. With Disco sound moving in in the mid seventies and with the bankruptcy of Capricorn records, Raven was literally like fish out of water, and slowly but steadily what had felt like the beginning of something unique, was lost. Musically the album relies on a hard driving Progressive sound with a very rhythmic approach filled with virtuoso guitar and keyboard solos as well as pulsating bass lines in a hard-rock backing. Think Primus meets Emerson, Lake & Palmer with a touch of Yes, Deep Purple, Rush, and Dream Theater. Features Robert Wolff previously with Micah and currently with Corvus Stone. Finally Who Do You See sees the light of day 37 years after being recorded. Strictly limited to 500 copies in high quality old-style tip-on jacket plus obi."
