FRICTION - Baby Talk eBay auction

Original indie label is Nizer Top Records.

 

This auction sez label is Retrospect Records & description states release year as "1990/2005", so obviously this is not an original.

 

I believe Retrospect is a legit label(?), but can't believe this one was reissued legitimately without any mention anywhere here at HH.

 

Or should the person selling it tell me all I need to know?

Look who the seller is and that's all you'll need to know....... <_<

 

If you go to www.retrospectrecords.com and click on the contact button, it e-mails Streetsofmetal@AOL.com. Streetsofmetal was a username that Vegascds used when Vegascds was not a registered user for a while. See any connection yet? <_< Hmmmmmmmmm

Ok folks...as was stated, the auction says "THIS FRICTION CD TITLED "BABY TALK" WAS RELEASED IN 1990/2005 BY RETROSPECT RECORDS."

 

It is being listed as a re-release...it is not being mis-represented as an original at all.

 

As for Retrospect Records, read here:

That's what I figured, guess I thought Sam's "label" was a under a different name.

 

My intent wasn't to bash the seller, just inquire about the pressing...

Well, since this "news" has broken here on the board tonight, here's some more info on the matter. This was posted on the Retrospect Records website about a month and a half to 2 months back; this is quoted exactly as it appeared then:

 

Here's the deal kids.

 

When I started Retrospect, I had hoped to make it a haven for former 80's bands who never

got the spotlight they so rightfully deserved. The concept started when I ran some Bittersweet demos,

but it developed, and somewhere down the line, it became just an indie label.

 

I have discussed things with a friend out west, who knows infinitely more of these 80's recording musicians than I will

ever know, and I truly believe he can bring Retrospect to it's full and intended purpose.

 

Please visit this site often in the coming months and help him drive this machine forward.

I feel in my heart that this is the right thing to do for a label I have loved so much.

 

Rock on fuckerz!

Well, just to throw out some more info on this matter, I can't speak for the Friction or Toy Roz releases, BUT, I spoke with Alyze guitar player Matt Olivo earlier this week via email, and he told me himself about the Alyze re-releases about to come out, so yes, those are legit re-releases. :)

Well, if the bands are aware of the reissues and are getting paid royalties for their work, I don't have a problem with this re-issue. At least now Sam is making it clear that the CD for sale is a re-issue. It's a step in the right direction.

 

Of course, true collectors will still know the value of an original over a reprint.

They're legitimate folks.......contracts and all. I know this disappoints some of you, but the truth of the matter is that Retrospect Records is here to present the hard rock community with some kickass reissues.

 

Not only with Alyze....and Friction....but with many more releases that will have the hard rock community buzzing for some time. And will keep them happy that they're finally seeing the light of day for the masses.

 

Allow me to suggest the most EXCELLENT Alyze First Issue *never before released by the band* EP......it is simply kickass. And, for those that haven't heard their full length original release "Playin' With Desire", I would suggest you check it out. You won't be disappointed!!!

 

 

 

And, Whiplash......damn if you are not the Sherlock Holmes!!! :lol: I love it....you do some kickass sleuthing!!!

 

Rock on.....and I would keep your eyes peeled gang. Because from what I've heard....the fun has just begun!!!

It's good to see you 'don't have a problem with it'....that's very nice of you in a very Sheriff-y kind of way.

 

And...I wouldn't call it a step Koogles.....I'd say he's running with it.....but of course....isn't that the idea!?

 

Enjoy the tuneage!! :band:

You are awesome!!! :lol:

 

But just to clarify....the EP isn't a 'reissue'. It's a first ever pressing as it was never issued prior to this release!

These releases were definitely kept under wraps. It adds to the excitement...wouldn't you say??!!!

I have no problems if he sells reissues as long as he states it in the auction. I see he did with this one and that's fine by me. I'd love to hear this cd since I've heard so much about it. As long as it's a legit reissue and the band knows and supports it. :drink:

Hi,

just a quick update on the RETROSPECT label and my brother's involvement in the company. Sam has in fact bought out the label and is president of it. He is scheduling to release over 100 of the rarest AOR, hard rock and metal cd's in these first 3 months with many many more to come. Some of these will no doubt be very limited edition pressings and will only be exclusively available thru him. Although I will possibly be listing some of these in my ebay auctions in the future also. Some of the titles will literally blow you away as some of these have never ever been released on cd before and some you would never thought you would see on cd again!!

This is the beginning of something very exciting -- and will allow rock and metal fans worldwide to hear some of this rare awesome music for the first time.

On a side note I hope to be doing some other rare AOR re-releases in the near future including stuff like All Sports Band, American Noise, Avion and others...

 

Keep it rockin'!!

Is it possible to buy these CDs directly through Retrospect, or are they only going to be listed by Sam on eBay?  I truly hope that's not the case.

 

 

 

 

Maronna!!!! This is awesome!!! SURRENDER and now Friction- my second top CD-r will soon be substituted by the proper release!!!

 

Someone just made my summer!!

Denis.

Thanks

Two questions:

 

1. Is it possible to get the list of the bands scheduled for re-release?

2. Do you think the price on Friction-Baby Talk will drop? I guess we shall see plenty of the first-press CDs on e-bay in nearest future.

To be honest, you guys should be checkin' out those Alyze discs! Those kick ass!!

 

I mean, the Friction is great.....and all the hoopla, blah, blah, blah, behind it..and we all know that, but I promise you....you will not be disappointed in Alyze.
