13CD Foghat Complete Bearsville Albums Collection In April

Foghat The Complete Bearsville Albums Collection 13CDIf you were a Savoy Brown fan, and were fortunate to enjoy the lineup that contained “Lonesome” Dave Peverett, Tone Stevens, and Roger Earl, then it wasn’t long before you began to enjoy the power and grace of an upstart Blues/Rock band by the unlikely name of Foghat. Foghat is the band that the three bandmates formed after leaving Kim Simmonds’ great band. Their first album featured a strong cover of Chuck Berry’s “Maybelline”, and their unmatched electric cover of Willie Dixon’s timeless “I Just Want To Make Love To You”.

By the time their reached their second album, the picture-titled Rock and Roll, they were on a row towards their inevitable fame. They managed a strong eight year run that peaked with their Live album from 1977.

On April 15, Bearsville Records will present a 13CD Boxed set of all their label issues of Foghat albums. This starts at their 1972 self-titled debut and finishes with Zig Zag Walk from 1983. The original band released a phenomenal album eleven years later called Return Of The Boogie Men. (If you do not have or heard this album, you should hunt it down as it’s a worthy slot to the other Foghat material.

The 13CD Foghat Box is being called The Complete Bearsville Albums Collection and will feature completely new 2016 remastering to freshen the audio up. Compelling enough? I think so!


New Robin Trower Album, Where You Are Going To, Planned For March


Robin Trower Where Are You Going ToRobin Trower has left quite a legacy behind with his stints as guitarist. One of those are his years with Procol Harum. The other is his extraordinary solo years. Trower hit almost immediate paydirt with his solo sets that started with Twice Removed From Yesterday (1973). It was his phenomenal Bridge of Sighs that turned the page for him and his two bandmates (James Dewar – Bass/Vocalist, Reg Isidore – Drums). That album put him on the fast circuit, a must to see.

Over the years, Robin Trower has released a string of albums up to 2015’s Something’s About To Change. Including that, Trower’s solo output stands at 20, not including his incredible 1976 Live album.

On March 25, Robin Trower will release his 21st solo effort, Where You Are Going To. This new album will contain ten new tracks (see track list below).The new album currently has no plans (that I’m aware of) of vinyl LP, but nevertheless, new Trower is always welcomed.

Friday Music To Reissue Four Classic Titles In 180g Vinyl

If you’re one to update aging versions of old favored classics, particularly with the popular 180g-weight audiophile class, then I’m providing a short list of four upcoming classics that you might want to consider.

On April 29, the Warner-distributed Friday Music label will offer these four classic titles in their respected remastered Audiophile Vinyl Series. In all cases, the limited edition vinyl jackets are complete with original art, just as they were first issued.

Robin TrowerLive!: This was Robin Trower’s fourth Chrysalis release, riding high on his immense stardom at the time.  Released in 1976, the album charted well, and is considered by some as a live album not to be missed. For this release, the album was remastered by Joe Reagoso. It’s one I’ll be picking up!

RobinTrower Live

Ray Charles Ray Charles: With his fusion of gospel, jazz, and blues, Ray Charles gave his Atlantic Records debut the best that he could.  And everyone reveres it much as they revere much of his existing catalog.  It’s just that this is one special album.  It is planned for reissue here on 180g-grade audiophile vinyl weight, with Joe Reagoso remastering of the Mono original tapes. This album will feature original artwork from the classic 1957 debut.


ChicagoChicago VII: This 2LP set contained their massive Top20 hits, “Wishing You Were Here”, and “(I’ve Been) Searching So Long”, as well as thirteen other Chicago tracks continuing on in the familiar, and much loved Chicago jazz/rock style fusion. Released in 1974, the album didn’t disappoint any Chicago fans one bit. It is remastered by Joe Reagoso, and Lee Loughnane from Chicago. The album is presented in orignial full artwork in the original gatefold jacket.


The Moody BluesA Question Of Balance: Featuring “Question”, A Question Of Balance went on to sell more than a million units, something that Moody blues fans are not surprised of.  This 1970 album of ten classic tracks gave fans more of what they wanted with the beautifully laid out and searching songs that explored more than the usual love themes that make up most songs.  A Question of Balance, for this limited edition 180g vinyl reissue has been remastered by Joe Reagoso from the original Threshold tapes.


Looking to upgrade these titles? Now’s the time to do it!
