HUUUUUUGE NEWS!


Recommended Posts

Ok Folks this is unbelievable. Due to my association with Carmine Rojas who plays bass in one of my bands...Monsters of Classic Rock (www.internationalrockshow.com) , I was extremely fortunate to meet with one of the true legends in the music business last night. Jerry Greenberg. Who is he? Well he was the president of Atlantic Records between 1974 and 1980 and then started his own label called MIRAGE RECORDS which lasted for 6 years. He then was president of Atco from '87 to '89 , president of WTG from '89-'92 (Choirboys , Beau Nasty , Bridge 2 Far) and finally president of Michael Jackson's label for 10 years after that....

 

Here's the kicker.....

 

Jerry has just agreed to license Retrospect Records the ENTIRE back catalog of Mirage Records!!!!!!!

 

You heard it right!!!

 

So what does that mean?

 

It means we get to see official silver-pressed re-issues of bands like FIERCE HEART , DC STAR , SOUTHSIDE JOHNNY, ROSE TATTOO , GERARD MCMAHON and dozens of other AOR / Hard Rock releases that are LOOONG overdue!

 

As we continue our negotiations I will keep you informed, but this is a dream come true for me and I had to share my joy with my friends here at HH.

 

This was a day I shall never forget!

Sam - Great News, especially the Fierce Heart album which is long overdue a CD Re-issue.

The Rose Tattoo back catologue was recently (Very well) done in Europe though with excellent Remastering, Digipacks & Bonus tracks, so peeps may already have those

 

Wasn't the extremely excellent Sandy Stewart - 'Cat Dancer' album on Mirage - will you be doing that one!!!If so, you have made my week??? :drink::drink:

Any chance you can get your hands on the WTG catalog? I would love to know if Beau Nasty has any extra tracks lieing around. I love Dirty, But Well Dressed. Just wished there was more out there.

I fired off an email to Mike Terrana asking if he was aware of any unreleased Beau Nasty songs a few days ago but no reply yet.

 

I'm looking forward to Fierce Heart and DC Star :banger:

I've never heard Beau Nasty. Maybe I should hunt down their cd.

It's not anything grounbreaking, it's just real good 80's hard rock ala Jesse Strange, Wildside, etc. A favorite in my collection just for it's consistency alone! :tumbsup:

I used to see the cassette in used music shops in the early 90's all the time.

I never remembered seeing them on mtv or in Metal Edge so I never bought it.
