The Rising Storm- Calm Before... (1966)

The Rising Storm is a rock and roll group which was active at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts between 1965 and 1967.

The original members of the group were Bob Cohan, Todd Cohen, Charlie Rockwell, Tom Scheft, Tony Thompson, and Rich Weinberg. The Rising Storm is most notable for their LP album, "Calm Before", which is cited by rock and roll historian Richie Unterberger in Allmusic[1]. as being "one of the rarest and most respected garage band albums". More than forty years after its recording, mint copies of "Calm Before" can fetch 4 figures among record collectors interested in the garage rock era. The notoriety of this rare album has been the subject of articles in the Boston Globe[2], Boston Magazine, the Washington Post Sunday magazine[3], Mojo magazine, and a feature interview by Liane Hansen on NPR's All Things Considered Weekend Edition.The band is still active and has reunited to perform on multiple occasions: in 1981, when Cohen was replaced by rock musician and record producer Andy Paley; in 1982, 1992, and 2002, when they played at their 15th, 25th, and 35th class reunions at Phillips Academy; in 1999, when they opened for the Boston reunion of The Remains; and in 2007, when they opened for The Yardbirds at the Primitive Festival[4] in Rotterdam, with progressive musician and composer Erik Lindgren on bass.
