about

**PLEASE NOTE: there is no planned streaming release of this album, it is *only* available on vinyl, CD and cassette**

The 5th studio album from The Basics, featuring a selection of originals and covers made popular during their near-20-year career. Some never-before-recorded material, some re-imaginings, "Rockin' Little Record" is the most rockin' little record since "Get Back", and available *only* on vinyl* and CD** - just as music was meant to be.

For the first time ever, The Basics themselves have performed, recorded and mixed the entire record themselves, to give you the closest experience to being "at home" with Wally, Tim and Kris.
