Re-Releases of older stuff

Post by Frank Marino » Tue May 03, 2005 10:12 pm

I just finished re-mastering 4 albums for Jim West and Just In Time...

I did Full Circle, Double Live, From The Hip and Eye Of The Storm. They're all going to be re-released pretty soon on the label, and on some other labels he does business with, like SPV. They'll have new covers and stuff (except for Eye Of The Storm) and each one will have an additional track (again, except for Eye Of The Storm).

Double Live will have Something's Coming Our Way, as an encore after Strange Dreams (which ended the album originally). It's a cool version.

From The Hip has an additional track that I haven't even named yet... it's a 16-minute 3-piece jazzy instrumental... not heavy, but kind of medium-light. It was done live in the studio, with Dave Goode on drums and Peter Dowse on bass. Gotta think of a name before tomorrow, when I deliver it.

Full Circle has another "live-off-the-floor" with the same guys, but this is a jazz/blues cover of the old Jimmy Reed song, "You Got Me Runnin". It's really jazzy too, in the sense that the drums are played with brushes and the bass sounds like a standup. But there's vocal on this one as well. It's not long, though, but I thought it was really cool... very intimate.

All the re-masters sound better than the originals, including Eye Of The Storm. I was really amazed as I was doing this... I had forgotten how much I liked Full Circle, or parts of it anyway. Maybe the new sound has something to do with it.

But I really like the extra tracks... Some may think they don't really "fit" the rest of the album (except for the one on Double Live, of course), but they're not supposed to anyway. They're quite different, but that's what makes it cool for me.

Hope they're out soon, and that you all like the extra tracks and sound, if you ever hear them ...

Why not release a collection of those jazzy songs that you have recorded along the years? You know, like "from the archives" kind of records.

I would buy them for sure.

Although I'm considering to buy these re-releases as well, but it's always more tempting to buy 100% "new" stuff.
