Considered a collector’s item

A few weeks ago, I was asked to re-post the Rittenhouse Square album. I said I would and then I forgot all about it. Sorry for the delay.

Rittenhouse Square was a short lived band that featured Mitch Easter, Chris Stamey, Peter Holsapple and Bobby Locke. The band formed sometime in 1971, played a few shows, recorded some songs and then broke up in 1972.

Without the other members knowledge, Locke pressed up 100 copies of an EP containing 6 Rittenhouse Square songs on his R-Squared Records in 1972. The record was packaged in a paper sleeve. Peter Holsapple says the record is a “considered a collector’s item by people that have obviously never heard it”.

I think it’s pretty good. There have been rumors of a re-issue. I sure hope there is one, all I have are these mp3's I got a while back.
