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.

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:

    • I Don't mind em so ill be checking this one out.
    • 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
      Inglorious Store: http://inglorious.com/shop/
      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?
