Rick Shaffer ● Bruce Cohen ● The Reds®
Introduction

In 1977, Tarock Music, was started as a music publishing company, in Philadelphia, PA, by Rick Shaffer, founding member of The Reds®.  In 1982 the company moved to New York City to combine artist management and music licensing by partnering with Basic Management, adding an independent record label in 1992, with the release of The Reds® album, Cry Tomorrow.   In 2006, to accommodate an in-house recording studio, the company relocated to Pennsylvania midway between New York City and Philadelphia, for easy access to both cities. 

Our song writers and solo recording artists, are Rick Shaffer (Blues Rock), and Bruce Cohen (Electronica/EDM/Trance), who together are known as The Reds® (Indie/Alternative Rock).   Visit our web site . . .TarockMusic.com . . . to click on the various tabs/sub-tabs at the top of the page for IMDB/credits, artist bios, liner notes/reviews for each album, free mp3 downloads, and lots more.  The publishing and masters in our catalog are owned 100% by Tarock Music for quick and easy licensing within the parameter of any project budget.

Hellbound Trip, has a down and dirty blues rocker wall-of-sound with hard layers of slide guitar, and a driving John Lee Hooker boogie groove telling the tale of finding yourself in the clutches of a Hoodoo Girl. It is positively scorching dark evil blues, and Shaffer serves notice he can tear off a ferocious solo with the best of them.

Final Surprise has a druggy party ambience, with layers of fuzzy guitars, reverb-soaked guitars, combined with a hypnotic bass throb. The song structure, production and vocals have a dirty, daring psychedelic tinged garage sound.

Changing Anything is another one that launches it’s undeniably strong riff at you right from the start. The chord progression here and the notes used in the vocal melody have a noticeably uplifting sound to them, it creates an optimistic and hopeful vibe; it’s a track you can believe in, a track you can escape to, reflect on your own life, drift off into your mind a little, or just feel utterly happy for a while and enjoy the moment. The guitar solo work here is beautiful, so much character oozes out with every note and every bend. Stereo Stckman

I could repeat the words of dozens of reviewers and talk about how raw and visceral the performances here sounds. But what amazes me about this record, by contrast, is how good it sounds. To talk about the musicianship of Rick Shaffer as a point of punk orthodoxy or Garage rock seems beside the point …

"The music recalls the early rock-n-roll simplicity in Shaffer’s earlier work. The track most exemplifying this is Your Charm, a cranked-up amplifier of updated Chuck Berry/Keith Richards, a bucketful of throaty Little Richard/John Lennon vocals, irresistible hooks, implicit danger, full-tilt boogie, giving you one of the most infectious sounds since Marc Bolan’s Electric Warrior". Eddie Shelton
