HUGE Retrospect news!

ok i thought i could wait - but i can't keep it in any longer! Some GREAT news from the Retrospect camp!!

 

Amongst an unprecedented amount of NEW releases on July 4th as Retrospect makes the switch to digital downloads, I am very proud to announce the signing of JILLSON!! Thats right, the highly touted mega indie release will FINALLY get a long awaited re-issue and will be available first as a download (with remastered audio and 3 unreleased bonus tracks!!!)

 

And for all you Jillson / Britny Fox / Tommy Paris fans -- we will also be releasing "Divine Judgement" - a post-Britny Fox band featuring Tommy Paris and Jillson drummer Jamie Borden with a collection of stunning unreleased hard rock songs!! Wait til you hear this folks!

 

We will also be carrying "UNCLE EDNA" -- Tommy's post Britny Fox EP with former bandmate Johnny Dee!!

 

AND THATS NOT ALL!! A few years ago, Tommy and Jamie did ANOTHER fantastic full length hard rock album with ex-Aerosmith guitarist Jimmy Crespo that has never been released!! The project was dubbed "J.J.T." (Jamie, Jimmy, Tommy). And once again, the music is just unbelievable!!

 

As some of you may know, for the last 2 years i have been playing in a band with Jamie Borden and Tommy Paris called PHOENIX and they both feel that now is a great time to finally get this music out there and to re-issue one of the greatest American indie hard rock releases of all time JILLSON (with 3 killer bonus tracks!!).

 

So stay tuned everybody and wait til you see and hear what Retrospect will have in store for you on JULY 4TH!!

Keep rockin!

if no CD anymore, then it's a disastrous news, but hopefully it's not :popcorn:

the way I read it, and I may be wrong, but it will be first available for download and the cd will be available a little later. I could be totaly wrong but that is the way I took it.

I read it that on July 4th they add many of their titles to digital for the first time and the Jillson and others will be available as digital download first and then released later as a physical cd. Looking forward to getting my mitts on an actual Jillson physical cd so hopefully that's what it is. The other Tommy projects sound great as well.

hey guys,

yep CD's will still be released of all material, we are just doing a big digital download push of all our releases on July 4th (wait til you see the release list....).

We are very interested to see the ratio of how many are downloading and how many are still buying the CD.

 

I hope that clears things up for you!

PEACE!

Thanks for the info, and that sounds great. I do hope Retrospect never goes completely digital. I have done both exclusively at different times in my life and I can tell you that I will not go back to digital. Call me old, but I still wants the music in my hands with a cover, inserts, etc. Hell, I still love vinyl!

I hate that when you lose something digital and that was your only copy you may have just lost it and have to pay for it again. some will say it is no different than if you lose a cd but I don't think I've ever lost a cd but my computer has lost some music.

What we are doing is something that has never been done before in the history of the music industry.

 

We will be releasing the most albums ever in a single day. It's going to be an extremely difficult task , but me and my brother wanted to do a huge push digitally to see how that would fare. If there is enough interest in some of the releases , they will be pressed accordingly.

 

Like most of you , we still believe in physical product , but we are very interested to find out how many people would actually download before physical release (if there even will be one).

 

On another exciting note , Retrospect has just signed FIONA FLANAGAN . and will be releasing her long-awaited comeback album very soon. The album features Bobby Messano , Tommy Denander , Robin Beck and was immaculately produced by the legendary Paul Sabu.

 

Rock on guys!

I hate to be the poor bastards that bought this release for big dollars...

 

:aw:

 

 

I would be one of the poor bastards but I can tell you this. Having the original is still a priority for me. I will also buy the re-released version (assuming it gets pressed) to have the 3 unreleased tracks but I have no regrets and no intention of selling my original. I'm very happy that its getting re-issued because there are a lot of people who have wanted this cd for a long time. But an original is an original any way you slice it.

 

A good example would be Cadillac Bratz. I bought the Retrospect re-issue a while back but I can tell you this...if I see the original, it's mine :)

I had the pleasure of seeing Fiona last year and Messano doing double duty with Fiona and Starz. She was very happy to get back into the game..

 

Looking forward to this release.. :beerbang:

Good point!

If I saw it for a cheap price, I'd pick up an original myself..

Hey Sam! Will you keep the original artwork, with the Jillson c.d.?

I have an original copy, but I'd like to hear It remastered and some more tracks. Man, I leave here for a couple months and a shit-tonne of stuff happens.

    • I've never heard of them, but Yes comparisons have piqued my interest. 
    • What? Now you need to be Christian to appreciate nature? You serious, mate? My two greatest passions are landscape photography and surfing and all that being in nature provides. I live every day in awe of the natural world around us (outside of cities) and that has zero to do with any type of God. 
    • One of the only times I will ever say I don't like the gang background vocals.
    • Yesterday Is Gone - Place Vendome
    • President Joe Biden's approval ratings have hit an all-time low for him at 36%, which is worse than former Presidents Trump and Obama ever had in office.
    • Really looking forward to this one.  I ordered the (2) CD set.  I already have the original TFAWIUTB.  
    • No atheist denies love is a thing. It has chemicals that make it happen but that closeness between human beings is clearly a thing and it feels good. It's also an essential part of pair bonding and the raising of the next generation.  You believe in life after death. I do too. I look at it every time I see my children. My part of the cycle of life ends when I stop puffing though.   
    • When it comes down to it, it is the love that matters. I feel the love of Christ in my life. I feel the certainty that He loves me. An atheist says that does not exist, it's imaginary. You even deny love to even be a thing, it's a chemical, it has no meaning. You walk outside, you see trees, you hear birdsong, and it means nothing. I see beauty everywhere I go, the beauty of Christ and His creation. I know beauty can be corrupted. I know evil exists. I know there is death. That is free will, baby. A person chooses to do what they do. Do I care if you believe what I know to be true to my core of being? No, not really. It's like someone saying to me "Def Leppard's Pyromania sucks". I know the music moves me and I love it. With Christ in my life it is that feeling x 1000. If it angers you that I have this love, as it seems to for some here, I can only apologise. It would be like not breathing to deny it. If that hurts your feelings cause once upon a time some church or Christian hurt you, I can just say, don't blame God for the followers. Evil appears in every element. Humans are fallible. Humans do bad shit. I am only responsible for my own soul. Do I want God to come down and intervene in every evil? Hell no. I love that we are free to choose. Forcing someone to love you is not love. Also, how about people be responsible for what they choose to do rather than blame God? You say there is nothing but death and darkness at the end. I know this is just a plane of existence and death has lost its sting. Again, I stress, I don't care if you agree or not. I'm not here to judge you. You are free to choose. I just ask for the same courtesy that you accept I don't share your views and that you can move past your hatred for that choice (not all on this site, just some).
    • Probably the wisest thing said on this thread.  Realistically, we're all in this position.
