This Monday I received a package in the mail that I have been anxiously awaiting with bated breath for a couple of months. It contained the CDs from the new METALLIC BLUE RECORDS LABEL that was recently started by one of the members of our group, Josh Dowdle. I felt compelled to post to let all of you know about this great new label and the bands being offered now and in the future if you haven't already heard of it. I know I have discussed with many of my collector friends the need for these small labels to propel these obscure bands and CDs to us for our collections. If you are like me, I hate the new wave of downloading and love to hold the physical CD in my hands. Oh, I have to mention, the liner notes and entire packaging on these Metallic Blue Records CDs are first class as is the sound. Most of you know I am a stickler for high quality audio....LOL!! Please, check out the new label and support it if you can, and Josh, I think you've put together a great package starting out.....good luck and long life.......

I'm disappointed he never posted about the venture here or even reached out.

Oh well, I guess all the trade drama he was involved in soured him on HH.

I don't even know what to say. Who are those bands? Where did they come from? Does the label go after the most obscure of obscure? I don't recognize any of the bands on their label.

Seems most titles are already OUT OF STOCK.  Is that actually the case, or have they yet to be released and there are no pre-orders?  

Also, I'd really like some sound samples.

That is surprising to me.   The only response I can make would be that maybe it is something that was overlooked.   I'm sure there's much involved in starting a project such as this.   Actually, I hadn't seen anything anywhere advertising the new label, only learned of it when discussing a trade with Josh back in May sometime.   I'd be great if he did reach out to you......

That is the essence of my post....here is a label providing the obscure bands for us....and if you listen to the sound samples on the web page, they are great sounding as well.   I'm certain you have observed numerous bands appear on Escape, Frontier, Perris and other labels and thought "Who are these guys, where did they come from, I don't recognize any of them".........I'm a collector, I have 100's of bands in my collection that I am positive neither you or many others have ever heard of before and when you heard them, would love them.....

You are spot on.....those titles labelled OUT OF STOCK are ones that will be released in the near future.   The bands have been signed and the releases are being prepared for release.   I know on the titles I purchased in the first release batch, they were listed like this and then changed to "Pre Order" with a release date of August 21 declared......As with any new project, we just have to hold our breath and be patient.

Oh, there are many sound samples posted, you just have to navigate the site by clicking on the "bands" and then there are links to listen to their songs

Most of the bands have at least 3 or 4 different samples posted

Thanks, Del!  THE TAKE is certainly my type of early 80's rock (before I got into harder stuff).  I'll be buying those ones.

Good luck to Josh and his new endeavor, in a time when releasing stuff on vinyl is the way to go! 

 

Great Steelhouse Lane reference in the name.

 

Judging by his  prices, hopefully he could do some SunCity ones!
