Baxter And Gravel Road Split Up

Get Down And Dirty will be the last co-produced title from the Fort Baxter and Gravel Road labels.
After several years of reasonable succes in re-issueing vintage Baxter a.o CD titles, the owner of the
original tapes has decided to call it quitts. Whatever future CD titles from old labels such as Baxter, Bilko, 2001 a.o by Gravel Road will be without the help and original tape sources as supplied by Baxter in the past.

It's not known if Baxter will continue lending out vintage tapes to other labels in the future.

Gravel Road is not perfect. Far from it... But still much better than Audionics.

Gravel proved to be something before Baxter showed up, so likely its' all BS. As I recall ,Baxter sold a lot with their garage sales. Personally I don't see what Gravel did wrong, all their releases were top notch. IMO it's a BS story to hurt the Gravel road image. Would be better for Gravel to release there stuff in future with photos' of their tapes, like they did with A day in Dayton. Go for it Gravel !

As far as I know Gravel Road has all tapes from Baxter etc..so future releases should be granted..

My guess is that after the Fort Baxter guy listened to the Audionics' disastrous 'At Full Force' CD,he thought that he won't lend his tapes anymore. If amateurs destroy the sound quality then they don't deserve the tapes. No matter how much they pay for them. See what they did with the 1976 Dallas concert. It sounded good on 'A Hot Winter Night In Dallas'. Fort Baxter did it right. But Audionics screwed it up...

Of course they will if they can fleece yet another generation of fans. These people will continue to milk the material for all it's worth.

I thought that the year of Elvis' 75. anniversary would be a great one. But now there's one bad news after the other.
