Album: Our House Lake of the Woods, MN EP Sampler (1970)


Rock bands and fans looking for fresh, never-heard-before “classic rock” music have just found it.
Our House, Lake of the Woods, MN, is proud to announce the release of a second album (Volume 5) from the 6-album box set of original music from the early 70’s. “Classic rock lovers will appreciate the reflections of some of their favorite hard-rock/psychedelic-rock bands from the 60’s and 70’s.”
The band’s name is the address of the infamous party house where they lived and recorded on the Canadian/US border in the early 70’s: Our House, Lake of the Woods, MN. Billed as an “international garage band” (from Indonesia, Haiti, and 5 states), the band decided to finish the songs, and for the first time release 3 albums from a 6-album box set they had written and recorded then. “We felt there are quite a few songs here that the world should have access to,” state band members and songwriters, Rick Stinson and Ron Sterlekar.
The songs were rediscovered in Los Angeles and Houston in 2013 after 40 years. Now known as The Lost Tapes Series (Volumes 4, 5 & 6), they were remixed and produced in three studios in Texas, with additional musician and singer friends also contributing. “They added some amazing stuff…holes that were purposely left in songs due to the restrictions of recording equipment in the early 70’s.”
Having no record label, there were no rules. But because of how they were originally recorded (on 2- and later, 4-track recorders), and after decades of sitting in storage units, the songs definitely have that ‘garage band’ raw edge about them. In the 1973, the band tried out their new material in Winnipeg, Manitoba, recorded it, forgot about it…and immediately started writing new stuff.
The original recordings are now combined with the new tracks, but with many instruments and vocals being re-recorded note-for-note. “These albums are definitely for listeners who like exciting guitar solos,” says Stinson.
“We wrote and recorded much more than the initial 3 albums after we all left Minnesota…and continued to write and improve as songwriters,” adds Sterlekar.
“The music covers the gamut from hard rock, psychedelic, to bluesy love songs.
Many songs contain some very innovative guitar riffs and solos. We feel there are some rock classics in here.”
Stinson: “We believe the songs now sound the way they were originally created to sound.
Hopefully bands, looking for new and unexposed material, will make them even better.”
The focus will be on introducing the last three albums (The Lost Tapes), including Volumes 4 and 5 which are titled Welcome to The Party, Part One and Part Two. (Volume 4 was released late 2016.) They also include a few remixes and live cuts from the three earlier albums.
“No record company was ever going to find us in that wilderness.” But it makes you wonder what could have been if they had been found.
