Here's an email I just got from Dan McCafferty (guitarist) , I'd like to share this with you as it warmed my heart and validated what Retrospect Records is all about...




Speaking for myself and all the WILD AUGUST members. Thank you, thank you,

thank you !!!

A month ago ( and I'm sorry for the delay in writing you ) I received a

royalty check for WILD AUGUST . To say I was shocked and pleasantly

surprised would be an UNDERSTATEMENT !! The smile on my face stretched

across my living room. Sam, you are a rare breed in the music biz. Someone

who, 'says what he does and does what he says'. All the members of WILD

AUGUST were amazed when I told them. I've been involved with many deals in

the music business. Many times people promise things and don't deliver.

There are a lot of hustlers out there and I 've met/ dealt with a "few" ( be

it club owners, promoters, manages etc. ) and it very refreshing to be

rewarded ( even after so many years ) for the music we created. I'm glad to

see you carrying the banner for this type of music. It was, and still is,

great music by great musicians. I'll be looking forward to hearing your web

radio idea. I think it's fantastic. I love this music !!!

On a personal note. I'm sorry for the loss of your father. I know first hand

having lost both my parents. My condolences to you and your family. But you

will get through this Sam.

Thanks again for the check. You made a lot a guys happy and proud for what

they did ' way back when'. Good Luck with all the "music that's fit to ROCK

    • That is one terrible album cover 
    • From Frontiers: BREAKING NEWS: Frontiers Music Srl are delighted to announce the release of “Ride To Nowhere”, the third studio album by Inglorious on January 25, 2019. The debut single & video from the album, “Where Are You Now?” is out now. The album will be released on CD, Limited Edition Box Set (CD+T-shirt), Vinyl, Limited Edition Crystal Vinyl (exclusive to Frontiers webstore), Limited Edition White Vinyl (exclusive to the Inglorious webstore), and Digital formats. Pre-order HERE: http://radi.al/RideToNowhere

      Frontiers Store: https://www.frontiers.shop/ In amongst their touring commitments, Inglorious spent 2018 writing and recording their third studio album, “Ride To Nowhere”. A much darker, more reflective album than their previous releases, the new songs further hone the Inglorious sound – the pulsating rhythms, driving guitars and infectious vocal melodies. “This album is different in many ways. The songs came about very quickly. As with all our songs we start with a riff, and this time having new guitarist Drew added a new and heavier feel to a couple of songs. We wrote the basics mostly together all in one room on acoustic guitars and then I went away and crafted the stories I wanted to tell. For me this album is very personal. I am for the first time writing about a lot of my feelings, relationships and losses...” – Nathan James “On this album I feel that the songs are a true reflection of what we’ve been through over the past few years - both as a band and as individuals. You’ve got the highs, the lows and lessons learned along the way. The making of this album was at a time when we all had our own personal situations and changes to deal with. I feel that this definitely comes through on the recordings and particularly songs like ‘Tomorrow’, ‘Where Are You Now?’ and ‘Glory Days”. – Colin Parkinson The recording of “Ride to Nowhere” involves for the first time new guitarist Drew Lowe, who says “The album is the next step for the band in maturity. Being that it's my first, I wasn't sure what to expect, but as soon as we started we knew what type of record was coming. Hopefully the fans will love it as they follow us on the musical journey.” From the body blow riffs of the first single “Where Are You Now?”, to the beautiful melodies and bluesy overtones of “I Don’t Know You,” from the assault of “Freak Show” to the acoustic ballad “Glory Days”, “Ride to Nowhere” is an absolute gem of an album, showing not only all the influences from iconic rock albums of the 70’s, but also offering the band’s own sound and interpretation. As with Inglorious “II”, the album was mixed by the legendary Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith). “There’s a lot of variety on this album, more so than the previous ones and that I really like. Sonically I think it sounds more fresh, contemporary in a sense and that goes for a bunch of songs on the album as well. Just the singles alone are different than how we’ve sounded in the past, but still have the Inglorious feel and vibe! Lastly I also think that musically it’s better than the previous albums, everyone plays very tasteful, soulful and collectively I feel that it’s perfect!” – Andreas Eriksson “We’re all really happy with the way the new record sounds and look forward to seeing how the fans receive it. I personally can’t wait to play the new material live on the road!”- Phil Beaver   Tracklisting: 1. Where Are You Now?
