This is not the first Barngrover/Light tape I have heard of, but it is the first to make it on this blog. Robert Barngrover and Stephen Light played together under the Barngrover/Light moniker from 1979 to 1992, so I am not sure what era this tape was released in. I think I have it narrowed down the 80s, if that helps :). The sound is a blues-influenced rock sound that borders on hard rock here and there. They have also been known to explore folk and progressive rock as well, but they seem to stick with rock on this tape. While they usually have a full band on most of releases I have seen, they are apparently handling all the instruments themselves here. They also note that “Living on the Outside” was recorded with their former band Blue Shift.
