When was their last release, out of curiosity? Jeez you'd be a brave man or woman to purchase a record label in 2018 (or anytime beyond).

Dunno, but if you go to RetrospectRecords.com, the front page is still advertising their "Rockfest" concert from 2015 (!), so it would seem that they've been gathering dust for a while.

Sam must have unearthed every unreleased collection of tunes out there. Give it a few decades of collecting dust, and you could literally unearth them all over again.

That long? Wow. Sounds about right, though.

Hard to see 100,00 dollars in value there but know knows. 

 I really hope our music doesn't just disappear. Sam might have some communication issues but at least the got music out there. He ,Rock Candy and a few others should be applauded for that.

I'd take it off his hands for $100.

Only  "value" is in the CD's as the other stuff is worthless.

These days anyone can get a webpage and find a band or two to press some cd's.

If there was some mega vault of demo's or masters then I might go $150...

Are any pending lawsuits also included in the deal? ;)

No clue, just one last Retrospect dig.

 

I read my comments about RR from 12 years ago last night and it seems like a lifetime ago....I forget why I wrote any of them.

Good riddance. Sam was a complete and utter prick.

Haha! Yea, it's not like their roster was loaded with mega-stars that would make it worth the $100K asking price, especially in this day and age. 

It's funny, even after all the years of drama surrounding this label that I've witnessed in my time on this forum, I actually only own one Retrospect release -- "Look Out For the Night" by Axtion.

....and y'know what? It isn't even that good :rofl2:

    • TBH, Bonfire are generally hit and miss with me anyway. Doesn't matter which version.
      Not a band I sit on the edge of my seat waiting for a new release from.
      But at times i really like their stuff, which is why this is a bit of a disappointment in that they are covers. But then I am kind of specific with my covers.
      Was just going through The Treatment and the only cover I kept off Running With The Dogs was No Matter What, others were boring. For me, you either improve on the original - that usually means updating a much older song with a cleaner and heavier sound.
      eg: Radar Love Or you change the original to a different version, while still respecting the original.
      eg: Walk This Way These Bonfire ones for me are the worst kind of covers, they are basically just re-recordings
    • I'll get back to you in a few years with my opinion haha, imma try to get this one soon and be part of the discussion as it happens for a change....
    • In a word.... dreadful. Why couldn't he have done a "Is This The Way That You Want Me" style album??
    • I cannot get enough from it! Pure silky AOR uncork champagne  anthems! They did it again! Of course, I wouldn't mind if they indeed searched for the punchy Crossfire sound. As long as the songs are great. 
    • I really love 2 songs + the styx/kansas worship song. Won't buy it. 
    • Yeah I like it and it is more metal. some more info: Skull Fist - Way of the Road 01. You Belong to Me
      02. No More Running
      03. I Am a Slave
      04. Witch Hunt
      05. Way on the Road
      06. Heart of Rio
      07. Better Late Than Lever
      08. Don't Cross Me
      09. Stay True    
    • Yeah if only he had stuck to something akin to the first two H.E.A.T releases  
    • ones 85%, ones 84%  You get my point yeah. Pointless discussion going on. 
    • I get Steve Perry's reasoning on doing a mellow album, what's Kenny's.?!
    • Yeah for me this is awful,a real waste,he's got a good voice would just have loved a bit more uummphff from the music,it never really gets going...all pretty plodding and samey for me
