Coming this October, from Epic Records touring band for Henry Lee Summer. Recorded in 1989 and mixed in 2012.

 

I've heard samples of all the tracks, and this is some darned good stuff. Hard to imagine how this was shelved for all these years.

 

A few samples to get you started below, with more to come...

 

1. Pump It Up

2. Love Is All Around

3. Sock It To Me

4. Get Down To it

5. Shot of You

6. Heat of the Passion

7. Save Your Lies

8. Feel Thang

9. Find a Way

10. Taste of Your Lovin

11. Back in My Life

12. Coming Home

13. My One and Only

14. Don't Play With My Head

15. You've Gotta Go

16. I Love You

17. Take Me Tonight (European bonus track)

18. Fly (European bonus track)

19. Time to Come Together (European bonus track)

Interesting sound. Not sure how sold I am based on those samples... good quality recording, though. Well produced.

Yeah I'll pick this one up as I do all Eonian releases. The samples sound okay, nothing too spectacular though. Interesting that this is Henry Lee Summers band - I think I have a few of his solo albums around here somewhere.

Most Eonian releases get tandemed up with another. I wonder what could possibly be the second band if there even is one??? I definately will be getting this one though.

Bobby Sisk was a excellent singer/fronter...used to sing in Wanted' in Indy (great live' band) In addition to 'Youngblood' id also highly recommend picking up 'Too Hot To Handle' (also on Eonian) as well.

I am really, really proud of this release! I personally think it is the BEST sounding hard rock / melodic metal recording over 20 years of age ever released for the first time. "No Retreat" is NOT a collection of studio demos. It had an enormous budget for an independent recording in 1989 and had some very talented people behind the controls. I suppose you will have to hear it for yourself from the CD rather than from an MP3 on your computer, but what you hear above is only meant to be a teaser. Btw, thanks Dan for posting this! Dan has heard the entire album and will be posting some additional mp3's sometime down the road.

 

Anyway, I thought I would answer a couple of the questions from the posts above:

 

1. Why European bonus tracks? Answer: Because we are trying to increase sales. This is not uncommon at all for a label to do this. Despite strong support from European media, online retailers are saying our sales have not been all that good. Eonian is printing a limited quantity of CD's with three bonus tracks. Once they are gone, they will not be reprinted. The three tracks are well worth it.

 

2. A second title to be released at same time as Youngblood? Answer: No. This is it. I plan to devote my attention to promoting this CD and hope for strong sales.

 

3. Too many people in this band? Answer: Seriously?

 

Anyway, I think this will be one of the best CD's you buy all year. Dan has heard the whole thing and think he would agree that the production is killer and that this sounds nothing like a recording from 23 years ago.

 

We are also about to announce a big, big release ...so stay tuned. It will include a few of the biggest names of the late 80's and early 90's.

 

Thanks for tuning into Eonian titles.

Can't wait to here about the new bands that are to be released in the future. I hope one of them is Ana Black. They used to cross the border and play in town back in the day.

Steve "I personally think it is the BEST sounding hard rock / melodic metal recording over 20 years of age ever released for the first time." Wow , guess you don't listen to some of my releases brutha. :whistle:

 

On another note , I'd like to thank Steve personally for continuing to release classic albums. I can't do it all and there's only a few of us left. It's a tough business , and making money on any level is difficult. Wait til u got 300-400 bands to pay out every quarter bro!

 

The "re-issue" market isn't an easy one , which is why I'm very picky about which titles get a short run and which titles get a large pressing.

 

Continued success Steve , it's a labor of love man , sometimes you have to see it as that.
