Recorded at Pirate Sound Studio, CA, June 1975. Recorded during studio rehearsals in the summer of 1975 with their new guitarist Tommy Bolin, this previously unissued set includes early versions of "Come Taste.." album tracks, and several lengthy instrumental jams. Track 10 is not to find in the booklet, it is an impromptu version of "I Got You Babe" by Sonny Bono…
These two late-'60s albums were released at the peak of Joe South's commercial success and visibility, coinciding with his hits "Games People Play" (which appears on 1968's Introspect) and "Walk a Mile in My Shoes" (which is on 1969's Don't It Make You Want to Go Home?). This Raven reissue combines both records onto one CD, with the addition of the way-cool psychedelic soul outing "Hole in Your Soul" (from the Games People Play album) as a bonus track.
The much delayed DVD of the Tony Ashton show at Abbey Road in 2000 is finally out on DVD. It has twenty two tracks, including all the PAL and Company Of Snakes performance, as well the three track Tony Ashton set, and Pete York / Eddie Hardin's set. A few of the opening acts are missing, but all the important stuff is here. It's been done as a combined DVD / CD package, so you also get the same set on a 2xCD, all in a thick digipak.
British band Doogie White & La Paz return with a brand new studio album entitled “Shut Up And Rawk”. Almost immediately after their previous offering, “The Dark And The Light” (2013) had been released, Chic McSherry and Doogie White started writing new material. A total of 17 ideas were demo’d with 11 of them finally being crafted into songs for a new album. Recording could only be done in stages because of other commitments, but in many ways that extra time allowed the songs to develop and mature into a very powerful rock album, entitled “Shut Up And Rawk”
