In a fun, Nuggets-like trip back to the era of the Summer of Love, Yesterday's Tomorrow: Celebrating the Winston-Salem Sound shines a strobe light on the vibrant '60s and '70s Combo Corner rock scene of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Original members of bands such as Arrogance, Little Diesel, Sacred Irony, and Rittenhouse Square-including Mitch Easter (Let's Active); Peter Holsapple, Will Rigby, and Chris Stamey (The dB's); and Don Dixon-convened on May 12, 2018, at the Ramkat Club to revisit those fuzzbox years, and this remarkable live concert recording shines brightly with their camaraderie and precise enthusiasm for those days of yore. In the mind-blowing songs of now-vanished local legends Captain Speed And The Fungi Electric Mothers and amidst the amusing scene portrayals of collectors' favorite Rittenhouse Square, the electric guitars soar, feed back, and sizzle. With the added oomph of the Occasional Orchestra (live strings, percussion, and brass) and stops along the way for affectionate renditions of then-faves by Bubble Puppy, The Easybeats, The Music Machine, The Electric Prunes, The Beatles, and even Kool And The Gang, there's a lot to love here.
