Pre JA Marty CD

Postby FirstBassman on Mon Jul 24, 2006 1:46 pm

From Jeff Tamarkin:

Thanks to an amazing vault find by Gordon Anderson of Collector's
Choice Music, a never-before-released live concert by the Town Criers, Marty Balin's pre-JA folk group, is going to be released on CD early next year. This will be the first-ever officially released music by the group. Gordon acquired the entire tape archives of college radio station KSFR and this 8-song show was among the finds. He says the sound is great and that Marty sounds superb on it.
Bill Collins of the group is assisting with photos and liner notes and
Marty is aware of the release and approves of it. Gordon also found tapes by many other bands, both from the Bay Area and elsewhere, including a '67 JA show and a set by the Wildwood Boys with Jerry Garcia. No word yet on whether any of these others will make it to CD as various record labels and estates are involved.

I can't wait to hear this one. I love it when they release obscure stuff like this, but don't believe that it was ever really lost in the first place. That's just a marketing tool.
