The Fort Baxter and Gravel Road import labels will join up again for the re-issue of "Get Down and Get With It". According to the information we received this re-issue should feature no less than 24 minutes extra from this July 15, 1970 studio rehearsal which was not made available before by Fort Baxter. The double CD will have a playing time of just under 100 minutes. The full tracklisting and artwork will be made available January 2010.
Two more projects in the can are an extended "Hang Loose" and a double CD featuring both October 1976 Chicago shows. The producers promised "not to scr*w up the Chicago artwork this time".
Do we need all this? I don't think so. I thought they promised the next release would be some stuff that is yet unreleased?? Or am I mistaken?
well it is probably 24 minutes of chatter, joking, fooling around and some false starts..
Yes Ronaldv, but have you ever known Gravel Road to release somthing unreleased, lol. Not in thier lifetime thats for sure.
Great news! Gravel Road didn't dissapoint us so far- their reissues are quality ones, with noticable sound and artwork improvements. Their 'Plugged In And Geared Up' is a little masterpiece with huge improvement in sound, and in stereo boo. And I'm really interested in Chicago '76 double cd, since the 'Chicago Beat' import is impossible to find for a reasonable price these days and I miss it in my collection.
Boots, boots, and more boots! Once upon a time, bootleg material was unique and rare. Now there's a glut on the market. I'm not complaining, but in a sense, such immediate availability takes a bit of the fun out of the hunt. I sort of liked the old days, except of course when I couldn't find what I wanted.
