Before televised singing competitions, the nationwide Rock to Riches battle of the bands gave musicians across the U.S. a chance at a potential album deal with Atlantic Records. The Quad Cities was not going to be overlooked and Lewiston rock n roll radio station KMOK-FM (now country station the Outlaw), sponsored an entry into the competition. The 1982 (or 83?) compilation album showcased numerous local artists. Down to its hand-painted cover, its a fantastic time capsule capturing an array of talent.
