Nektar – Remember The Future – Deluxe Edition (Double Disc)

When this album was first released in 1973 it was the first time most of America heard Nektar. The album went to number 5 on the Billboard charts and Nektar was a hit in the States after becoming quite popular in Europe. The original release contained only two songs – Remember The Future Parts One and Two, adding up to more than 35 minutes of music on two sides of the LP. Those original tracks along with LIVE versions of both and an entire LIVE performance recorded in Brazil (where Nektar is bigger than Pink Floyd) are included in this deluxe edition of the album – all for the price of a single CD. The sheer brilliance of Remember The Future has endured all these years and is indeed proven with this release.

Songs on this album are:

Disc One
1. Remember The Future Part One (16:35)
2. Remember The Future Part Two (18:58)
Bonus Tracks
3. Remember The Future Part One – LIVE (16:11)
4. Remember The Future Part Two – LIVE (19:27)

Space Opera – Safe at Home

Brand New from Space Opera!

Back in the early 70s around the time that Space Opera was recording their first amazing album, the band recorded a bunch of tunes that never quite made it onto the debut LP. We raided their divine archive and came up with an album of material that certainly rivals their first. Mastered under the supervision of David Bullock here’s what we like to call “Safe at Home” – a new release of songs from the 70s with all the “Byrds meet XTC” sound you’ve become addicted to. This is one for (and from) the archives.

Dino Valenti – Get Together

The Lost Recordings Pre 1970! {Special Offer}

Who’d a thought that we’d ever uncover lost Dino Valenti music and that it would be this damned good? And when I say “lost” – I really mean it. The tapes used to form this album were found in a storage unit in northern California by some very nice people who just knew that this music was valuable without even hearing the tapes. They figured out how to reach Dino’s son, Joli and the rest is history in the making.

This CD marks the very first time that a Dino Valenti album offers his own recording of his song, “Get Together” (made more than famous by The Youngbloods). It also features covers of “Midnight Rider” (Gregg Allman) and “I’ll Try Something New” (Smokey Robinson) which are both stellar performances. But the true gems on this album are the original tunes that were recorded back in the early to late Sixties. How did this stuff survive all this time and sound so cool? And since this stuff had been literally lost, we really don’t know who’s playing on it besides Dino but some of these songs sure sound like Quicksilver Messenger Service – you decide.

Special Offer ONLY from ItsAboutMusic.com

ItsAboutMusic.com owns the exclusive license to these recordings – thus when you see it for sale anywhere you can rest assured that Dino’s family is getting paid. That’s most important to us. But if you buy the CD at Amazon or in any physical CD store, you will not get a FREE 2nd CD of bonus tracks from this album along with a Dino Valenti button/pin like this

when you buy this CD from us – you get the 2nd CD and the button with your order. The 2nd CD will be packaged with the full album as a double disc. You knew there was a reason you liked us – right?

Here’s the music – just listen to this brilliant album!

Mark Clarke – Moving To The Moon

The first album from the veteran bass player from Colosseum, Uriah Heep and Natural Gas (with Joey Molland of Badfinger and Jerry Shirley of Humble Pie) has been a long time coming. After 40 years of his friends and fans asking for a solo album – here it is. And it’s a masterful collection of extemely well recorded and performed tracks that rival any from the bands he’s played in.

From the opening track right through to the closer this album begs to be listened to over and over again and even memorized note for note. I’ve had the pleasure of hearing it more times than most people would hear almost anything in their collection and it keeps getting stronger with each listen. We’re very proud to be the exclusive distributor of this album from one of the nicest and most talented guys in the world.

All new digital remastering

I know that all the Badfinger fans out there who actually know this record were very disappointed in the Renaissance Records version that was released in early 2010. It sounded terrible and the artwork looked like a second thought, haphazard scan of the LP. I personally have remastered this record and it now sounds perfect – as it did when it was first released. And the artwork looks cool too.

Michael Stanley – The Hang

It seems like I keep saying this every time Michael releases a new CD but true is true – and it’s true again that he’s made another fantastic 23rd album with “The Hang.”

Michael says,“I think it would be fair to say that this is the ‘darkest’ album I’ve ever made as it was conceived during a particularly daunting eighteen month period in my life…but, that being said, I also think it’s a testament of hope and to the power we accrue from those we chose to have at our side on our journey.”

Healing Sixes – Bluejay

“Great new release from Healing Sixes, the Indianapolis blues-rock band that is a favorite of Joe Bonamassa. In fact, the song Fine Time features Bonamassa, and has gotten a lot of local airplay … for good reason. Bands like Healing Sixes keep cranking it out in the Heartland, and this new release confirms they are worthy heirs to the legacy of ballsout rockers like Grand Funk Railroad We’re an American Bandand Bob SegerLive Bullet, leavened with the type of originality represented by the Black Keys Brothers and the Avett Brothers Live, Volume 3.”
