The riper the finer…

Joe Chemay is one of well-known bass player & background singer for his versatile recording session works with big names including Elton John, Beach Boys and Pink Floyd (for the famous album “The Wall”) in late 70’s and early 80’s.

More recently, we can still find his name on many albums such as Shania Twain’s smash hit album “Come On Over” (1999) and so on. Alongside busy studio session works, Joe formed his own band and recorded their own album in 1980. As the Joe Chemay Band, they got a deal with Unicorn Records, minor label distributed by MCA.

Thus “The Riper The Finer” was released early 1981 in the States, from which 1st single “Proud” was running up the pop chart and ranked #68 at the highest in March 1981.
