The Fotomaker Collection

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Mike DeGagne
With two members stemming from the Rascals, Fotomaker sang tightly polished pop
ock songs, complete with catchy choruses and ample guitar work, but never really came to fruition outside of New York. All three of their albums, Fotomaker, Vis-A-Vis, and Transfer Station contribute to the 16 tracks on this all-you-need collection.
