THE ROCHES - st LP 79 w Nurds LP 80 w Keep On Doing LP 82 w Another World LP 85 w No Trespassing EP 86 w We Three Kings LP 90 w Moonswept LP 06 And Maggie and Terre Roche - Seductive Reasoning LP 74 - 75

Getting their start as a duo with Paul Simon, I got to see their network TV debut as a trio back in 79/80 as I remember it vaguely.  Make for some good headphone music at work.  Great lyrics and attitude.  Their sound evolved with the times with the latter very good. Also the Christmas LP has some classic songs that I find myself humming from time to time, so now you will be prepped for the season instead of my posting something on Christmas day as usual when it's too late.

I've always found it utterly mystifying this group never transcended the 'cult' status as they're phenomenal with their tongue-in-cheek, complex-harmony delivery. Great stuff and thanks for the great upload! (great site too)

First time I heard The Roches was 1980 with her dbut album. I recorded it on a tape but someday I lost the tape. So I am very happy to hear them now.

Thanks for the Roches, together with my best loved song "Losing True" with wonderful harmonies. And the links are still alive, great gift!
