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...

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)

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.

    • Probably the wisest thing said on this thread.  Realistically, we're all in this position. 
    • Yesterday-G'N'R
    • From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of "Before The Sun Sets", the upcoming debut album from City Of Lights on February 11, 2022. City Of Lights is an exciting new melodic hard rock collaboration between British newcomer songwriter/guitarist Neil Austin and Greek vocal sensation Manos Fatsis (Odyssey Desperado, Hideaway). They deliver hard-edged melodic anthems driven by crunchy riffs and lush keyboard textures combined with soaring, passion-filled vocal melodies. Tracklist: 1. Racing On The Redline 2. Heart's On Fire 3. Emily 4. Heat Of The Night 5. Dying Light 6. Give Me Back My Heart 7. Put Your Heart On The Line 8. Snake Eyes 9. Joanna 10. Midnight Club 11. How To Love 12. Before The Sun Sets   LINE-UP: Manos Fatsis: Lead Vocals Neil Austin: Rhythm Guitar, Backing Choirs, Programming Robin Eriksson: Bass, Harmony Vocals Mats Eriksson: Drums Guest Musicians:  Guitar Solos: Nathan Doyle - Racing On The Redline, Heart's On Fire, Heat Of The Night, Dying Light, Midnight Club Daniel Johansson - Give Me Back My Heart, Snake Eyes, Before The Sun Sets Jonathan Carlemar - Snake Eyes, Joanna Mike Kyriakou (Kyre) - Emily Wahwah Guitar: Matt Farmer - Snake Eyes Keyboard Solo: Mikael Blanc - Before The Sun Sets Piano: Joel Selsfors - How To Love       
    • From MelodicRock Classics: MRC008 – HEADWAY (Featuring Steve McClintock) – Headway                                     1CD Limited Edition Unreleased pomp-AOR / melodic rock album from 1980 featuring vocalist and guitarist Steven McClintock. Includes original master tracks plus a couple of live bonus tracks recorded in 1981.    
    • To be honest, it doesn't really concern me if he did or didn't. I put it out there are a kind of olive branch (ie: not everything is completely imaginary and made up) Not many lives were well documented 2000 years ago. Likelihood is that he existed, and had some small amount of notoriety. Was killed and became a Randy Rhodes or Jeff Buckley. A lot more famous after death than when alive. The bibles changed over the years, his exploits became more impressive and eventually  became a demi god. Ironically I love easter and Jesus stories. They make great stories
    • That's really not proven. Opinions split. On the balance of it there is a fair chance he existed but it cannot be proven definitively he did.  His life isn't well documented outside of the bible.  It's long but this is a good video on the topic.     
    • I thank that may be partially due to his delivery style. He'll read part of a quote/sentence/article, make a pithy remark, lather rinse repeat. So it takes him a while to get through things and for the full point to come across. I think if he cut down his breaks by 50% it would be much more digestable. Still, as Lefties go, he's seemingly got more brain power and common sense than many...      
    • New song 'Irreversible'. From Frontiers: 'Irreversible' is a new single from Norway's Big City. The track is from the recording sessions for their most recent studio album, "Testify X", which is out now. Fans of bands such as Firewind, Queensryche, Magnus Karlsson's Free Fall, Europe, Fair Warning, and the like should look forward to being introduced to this exciting band.    
    • Yeah mate, that's definitely them through and through. Maybe slightly "ballsier" in recent years, but if you dig that you'll dig their gear.
