FREAKIN AWESOME NEWS!


Recommended Posts

Ladies and gentlemen , 2 big announcements...

 

1) Ron Keel is now the Vice President of Retrospect Records and will be taking over promoting and marketing for R.R. After signing my 200th band yesterday , I feel I have no option but to allow a long-time pro handle that side of the biz. It's just too much for me to handle. I'll allow him to announce a full press release shortly.

 

2) I just inked a deal with an amazing company that will now be silver-pressing EVERY RETROSPECT RELEASE. NO MINIMUM REQUIRED. That's right - NO MINIMUM ORDER. That means I will delve back into the many already oop Retrospect re-issues and re-releasing them once again as SILVER discs. Now before you all get excited I haven't actually held one of their products in my hands yet but judging from the pics , it's exactly what I , and some of you, are looking for. Once I actually see a pressed disc from this particular company I will let you all know my opinion and proceed from there.

 

Some great news indeed!

 

Maybe NOW Retrospect Records will be taken seriously and recognized as a driving force in today's music industry...

Three big announcements! Ron Keel coming onboard, all cd's being silver pressed (if all goes well) and reissuing some oop Retrospect albums. Congrats!

Say Hi to Ron for me. ;)

 

And I swear to God I'm not being sarcastic here, but is there any chance of Ron's "Ronnie Lee Keel" country material being re-released? Cuz my wife's a country music fan and I think she'd get a kick out of that stuff (especially if I followed it up by playing Keel's THE RIGHT TO ROCK and saying "believe it or not, that's the same guy!" hahaha)

well as a serious cd collector and if you are truly going to release and re-release you cds silver pressed you'll surely have a new customer i hope you release that LORRAINE CD silver press because i own one of the BOOTLEG?edition BOYS NITE OUT and i was going to order it from you regardless if it is a cdr or not to compare the two but now ill wait to see it become silver pressed

Congrats Sam! RK is a class act. You have just added a ton of credibility to your business with your signing of RK and silver pressing all of your future releases. Well done. :drink:

Hey thanks for the response guys. After my dad died last month it really put a lot of things in perspective for me about what I wanted to do with the company. (And thanks to everyone who sent their regards during that difficult time - I appreciate it).

 

Anyhoo , I'll try to answer some of your questions....

 

Fat_Freddy , I will sell you my copy of Ronnie Lee Keel's country cd!!

 

Heaven_&_Hell - The Steeler back catalog no , but we will definitely see the release of TWO Keel dvd's (one Live in Japan and one with all the videos on it). Also the re-release of Keel self-titled and The Final Frontier. And another Keel unreleased album. AND the new Keel/Shortino album.

 

Retrospect has just released a Ron Keel 2 cd set with a bunch of previously unreleased Steeler , Ron Keel and IronHorse tracks - check out the website for that release. 30 Songs!!!

 

Upcoming releases....I will post on a new thread

Hey Sam,

Any chance of Ron's band The Rat'lers cd being re-released?

 

I dunno about that - the country thang isn't too appealing - LOL.

 

I agree, leave the country stuff alone and concentrate on what retrospect does....RAWK!! Great news for ya man, happy for you and the company, congrats

 

:dance:

Got the "silver" discs in today. Ain't happy. Damn shame.

That sucks. What's the story?

They aren't silver. The company advertises the cd's as being silver-pressed clones. Well they aren't any better than the company I am doing biz with now. Now personally , I like the way my newer releases have been looking and they will get better and better but the search will still be on for a company that can do REAL silver-pressed clones at a reasonable cost.

Bummer.
