Q. Stone – Pink On Blue – 1990

Finland’s Q. Stone are back with their 2nd album or 3rd if you count their album with Larry Norman. It picks up where their debut left off. It’s a fantastic blues album and quite frankly other than Larry Howard no one touches these guys in the blues genre. The only change in line up was Max Tabell joining on keyboards. It does not appear this album was released outside of Europe and I’m completely mystified how these guys weren’t huge in North America. Oh well I long ago quit trying to figure out the record industry.

One thought on “Q. Stone – Pink On Blue – 1990”

  1. Thank you for this! The first Q. Stone album has been a favorite of mine for over 30 years. But I never knew that they released any more. Already bought my own copy. This blog is great.
