Raw, is the seventh studio album by American band Crack the Sky. Other than Jamie LaRitz playing lead guitar, however, all of the musical parts were played by John Palumbo. The next Crack the Sky album, 1989's From the Greenhouse, saw the return of a number of veteran CTS members, most importantly guitarist Rick Witkowski. All tracks written by John Palumbo. John Palumbo – guitar, bass guitar, vocals, drums. Jamie LaRitz – lead guitar, EFX. David Heckscher – Elvis voice. John Palumbo – producer.
Only for completionists (38%). I was hopeful this would set up a challenge for John Palumbo and that he'd produce an entirely different yet entirely worthy Crack The Sky album. It's certainly different enough from the rest of their catalog, but whatever you call this kind of music, it's unlistenable. We should never judge an album by the label it's on, but the fact that this is on Grudge Records is an indicator that something is very wrong.
Their first album "Crack The Sky", released in 1975, was declared album of the year by Rolling Stone magazine, and contained such "cult" hits as Ice, Hold On/Surf City and She's A Dancer. Unfortunately, it never got promoted very well, and failed to catch on with the public. Eventually, in 1986 John decided to make another CRACK THE SKY album, "Raw". He once again wrote all the words & lyrics, as well as produced the album.

Crack the Sky, ‘Crack the Sky’ (1975). American rockers aren't known for their prog ambitions, and the bands that did push the boundaries usually slipped through the commercial cracks. Case in point: West Virginia wise-asses Crack the Sky, who created an outright classic with their kaleidoscopic debut. Led by singer-mastermind John Palumbo, the band expertly navigated chunky hard-rock riffs ("Hold On"), barbed art pop ("Surf City"), fusion funk (the wicked breakdown in "She's a Dancer") and long-form balladry ("Sea Epic").
