Hi folks , time for an update on the Retrospect front. Been extremely busy here signing over a dozen acts in the past 2 weeks!!

 

NEW RELEASES NOW AVAILABLE

 

Saylor - tracks recorded between 1988 and 1995 - Melodic Hard Rock (side project from Herazz members)

 

Herazz "Yet To Come" - 1985 - Melodic Metal

 

Herazz "Can't Let Go" - 1989 - Hair Metal / Melodic Hard Rock and the FOURTH Herazz album released by RR.

 

Alleyrat - 1992 - A Melodic Metal GEM , if you want Alyze with even BETTER vocals then check these guys out - one of my personal faves in the Retrospect catalog (JLPROCKS - this right up your alley , lol pun intended).

 

Joey Dalmon "Carousel" - 1990 - Westcoast AOR like The Koo meets Sharx. Jez , Kim HP and the AOR crew needs this one!

 

Stit - "Backwards" - 2006 - This Detroit-based quartet have been together since 1989 and this is their first CD release - as well as one of the very few 'active' bands in the Retrospect catalog. Fans of 80s Glam / Sleaze should check out STIT (not to mention that my wife's chest endows the cover of this release - lol)

 

Stalker - 1990 - Melodic Hard Rock / Hair Metal

 

Big Guns - 1990 - Melodic Hard Rock / Hair Metal

Hamish "TBA" - 1990 - Melodic Rock / AOR from Canada (Haywire , Boulevard fans!!!)

Scary Hairy "Intent to Deliver" - 1993 - Melodic Metal (with a touch of prog) featuring Manila Thrills vocalist Michael Beck.

 

Fury "Fury" - 1985 - One of the most coveted 80s AOR gems FINALLY gets an official cd release. If you are aware of the fantastic cd by "Blanc Faces" (2005) then you'll know that I am ecstatic about signing the LaBlanc brothers. 20 years before Blanc Faces , these guys released an unbelievable slice of AOR that no AOR fan should be without (I am really excited about this one!) - WOW.

 

Nantucket "V" - 1985 - That's right folks , the Nantucket legacy continues by signing with Retrospect for a 2 album deal (which includes a Live album) , but this is their most AOR-sounding album and it FINALLY sees a cd release. Another essential piece for the AOR collectors.

 

Tyger Tyger "TBA" - 1992 - Florida-based Melodic Hard Rock / Hair Metal featuring members of Roxx Gang , Intice and Crimson Glory. This one f____g ROCKS!!

 

Jester "Time Has Come" - 1993 - Melodic Hard Rock - 2nd release on Retrospect from this extremely talented Canadian act.

 

Beggars Playground - 1993 - Melodic Hard Rock from St Louis. Featuring members of Bad Candy (also on Retrospect)

 

Isom "TBA" - 1988 - Melodic Hard Rock / AOR / Hair Metal featuring "Monster" vocalist (lol) Mark Isom. This one is as good as DEFCON!!!

 

Toxic Dollz - 1991 - Pure Glam / Sleaze

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

As you can tell , we are extremely busy here. And there's probably some releases I forgot about! LOL. Retrospect employees are working round the clock to bring you the most obscure (and not-so-obscure) artists from the 80s. I thank you again for your continued support. Rest assured that 2007 will be even bigger than 2006!

Hey Sam:

Nice to see you're starting up a subsidiary for some heavier stuff. It does this old thrasher's heart good. :)

 

By the way, I've been on a massive Crimson Glory kick for the past couple of weeks so this "Tyger Tyger" has piqued my interest. Which C.G. member(s) were involved with this band? I'm familiar with the CG offshoots ELC (Erotic Liquid Culture), Parish, and the Ben Jackson Group, but I don't believe I've ever heard of Tyger Tyger. Just curious.

How could I forget? Another VIP signing for Retrospect....

 

LORRAINE!!

 

Some people know this album called "Boys Night Out" is one of the highest priced discs around. Well now it will finally see an official cd release , and what a corker it is! Hair Metal at its finest.

 

 

 

Freddy , the singer of Tyger Tyger is Tony Lee Wise. He was the original vocalist for Crimson Glory before Midnight!

And as you most likely know... I'll be eagerly awaiting the DC Star release... And don't forget about the bonus song, "Dreaming Of You".

Tony Lee Who? :blink: Sorry, never heard of him. I knew one previous C.G. vocalist was a fella named Mark Ormes, didn't know they had anyone else besides him and Midnight though. You learn something new every day I guess.

Sam - some good stuff there mate. I may have mentioned this before, but are you going to do Sandy Stewart - Cat Dancer that was on the Mirage label as this was a hell of an album, Lite AOR of the highest order.

hey thanks for the tip about Sandy Stewart - I'll ask Gerry about licensing that one too.

 

I also found out that Mirage had something to do with those 2 killer RAGE albums from the early 80s too. You know the ones "Run for the Night" and the other one (name escapes me) , so those would be real gems also!

 

I am still talking to Mark Chatfield about the ROSIE re-releases , hope to make that happen!

Would that Rage album be "Nice & Dirty," with that classic girl-on-girl action album cover?

 

(NOTE: Obviously this is not the German power metal band Rage, different band, same name)

Thats right Freddy. I'll do some research on those albums.

 

Woo hoo! My useless knowledge is still good for something. :)

 

If you reissue that album please make sure to use the original girl-on-girl cover... I believe there were later pressings with tamer album art, but the original is always the best, especially in this case. :)

The album cover might seem kinda tame by today's standards but in 1982 or 83, when I first saw it in a record store, it certainly had an effect on me!! :lol:
