From the Greenhouse, the eighth "proper" Crack the Sky album, expands on the "John Palumbo and a guy to play the guitar solos" format of their previous album (Raw, 1986) with the return of keyboardist Vince DePaul. Also returning to the CTS fold are founding members Rick Witkowski (lead guitar) and drummer Joe D'Amico (relegated to just singing back-up vocals).
