SNAFU Situation Normal (reissue)

SNAFU returned to the UK in early 1974 from touring the world playing support to The DOOBIE BROTHERS and The EAGLES and went straight into the studio to record their second album 'Situation Normal'. 

The band explored a strong country rock route with MICKY MOODY getting more into playing slide guitar and BOBBY HARRISON producing sublime vocals with the band rhythm section a tight and soulful performance. 
Released in 1974 the band went on tour in USA supporting ELP and in Europe WAR to support the albums release.

A much sought after classic album.

DAVID COURTNEY Midsummer Madness/Shooting Star

DAVID COURTNEY has, through a long and successful career, achieved that elusive smash hit record that many generations of songwriters strive to achieve. HIT songs such as "One Man Band", " The Show Must Go On", "Giving It All Away" to name a few 

By 1975 he took time out to pursue his solo career, releasing his debut album "First Day" which caused a few ripples in the UK but charted in the USA. Seeking to maintain the momentum of that success he travelled to Honky Chateau Studios, France (where the studio had attracted David Bowie to Elton John to Pink Floyd to Cat Stevens) and assembled an amazing cast of musicians (who collectively performed as ARGENT) and recorded "Midsummer Madness"

On returning to the UK the album was mixed by legendary Beatles engineer Geoff Emmerick. David on playback was not comfortable it was the right album to follow "First Day" and he took the difficult decision to mothball it. 
With hindsight he had produced a classic Prog Rock album which is now released for the first time 35 years later. 

The bonus album "Shooting Star" was recorded in 1980 when David was living at 3361 Cold Water Canyon, Los Angeles a property later made famous by Eddie Van Halen (who bought the house from David) and renamed it 5051 studios. David and Mike Love from The Beach Boys became friends and Mike wanted to take David's new album "Shooting Star" and turn it exclusively into the new Beach Boys album. David's response "No"! 
Once again he put the album "back in the box" but 33 years later it now sees the light of day. 

Two lost gems, mastered and available commercially for the first time.

MUSICIANS:
DAVID COURTNEY, JOHN VERITY, BOB HENRIT, JIM RODFORD, PHIL KENZIE, RICK SHLOSSER

VERDEN ALLEN'S SOFT GROUND - Love You And Leave You 

VERDEN ALLEN founder member of MOTT THE HOOPLE has since the 2009 Mott The Hoople reunion (of which he was the driving force in facilitating) been working with his band SOFT GROUND on the live circuit.

Having released solo albums over the years he has now returned to the studio to record a rock album with a full band sound whilst showcasing the swirling Hammond Organ, honed song writing skills and his striking vocals that are his trademark.

'Love You And Leave You' is an excellent mix of rock tracks and ballads and will appeal to both his existing fans and those who are curiously open minded.

MUSICIANS:
VERDEN ALLEN, MATTHEW BLAKOUT, JAMIE THYER, ROB HANKINS
