    "Now, 25 years later, a much-needed anthology of Raging Fire's recordings has arrived to secure their legacy in the digital age. Everything Is Roses 1985-1989, due Oct. 6, is a collection of all the band's vital recordings, many of which are previously unreleased, some having been painstakingly mastered from dusty old cassettes. The vinyl packaging is stunning, with a lavish 12-page booklet full of notes, lyrics, photos, show fliers, etc., plus a 24-song download.”

    --Nashville Scene October 1, 2015

    "Raging Fire could pull back and give hints of their Nashville origins, but the band’s dynamic rock ‘n’ roll rage was more in line with the barking poetry of Patti Smith, post-punk of X than southern rock or country twang. Even the band’s acoustic numbers, such as “After Loving One Man From East Texas,” have some bite."

    --No Depression, 2015

about

from the 1985 EP 'A Family Thing'

lyrics

I brushed my hair and tripped down the stairs
into another Monday - what would my mother say?
I heard the door slam a thousand times
and you left me - but I know
“its a family thing”

she said it one time
she said it two times
then she stopped eating and started drinking
we always hear the blues in my mother’s house

“if you love me keep yourself clean
stop knocking around with every guy town”

she said it one time
she said it two times then she stopped eating and started drinking
we always hear the blues in my mother’s house

I heard the door slam and then she left me
but it’s just a family thing
