Two Yardbirds-related products are available in December 2011: the new edition of Greg Russo's book Yardbirds: The Ultimate Rave-Up and the Glimpses: 1963-1968 box set that Greg spent more than 5 years working on. You can purchase Glimpses 1963-1968 at Easy Action.
After more than 15 years, Greg has finally updated the book that kicked off Crossfire Publications - Mannerisms: The Five Phases of Manfred Mann. It's about time! This edition has 128 more pages, including Manfred's articles for Jazz News in 1962.
And now, a major announcement...
AVAILABLE JANUARY 24, 2011
During 2010, Crossfire rolled out 35 download volumes (a total of 417 tracks) from Paul Buff's archives of Pal and Original Sound recordings. Many of you wanted lossless files rather than MP3s, so we've gone and done it! After more than four years of meticulous work, we are proud to present Paul Buff Presents The Pal And Original Sound Studio Archives: The Collection.
We're offering the entire 35-volume set of recordings as WAV files along with a large, 138-page PDF featuring Greg Russo and Paul Buff's historical liner notes, photos and credits. The whole thing comes on a flash drive. Of course, all of the tracks that feature Frank Zappa as a performer, writer, producer or engineer are part of this set. Not only that, you also get 56 bonus tracks (two featuring Zappa) that were not part of the series. All of these bonus tracks were discovered and/or remastered after the series was completed, and you have to buy the entire set to get them.
The price for Paul Buff Presents The Pal And Original Sound Studio Archives: The Collection (more than 600 tracks) is $350 US for the flash drive (including shipping), but it is now on sale for $275 US. Please feel to write Greg for the entire track listing that is way too long to list here!
Ordering and payment can be made via the ordering page's PayPal link. With your order, Paul Buff's collection will be in your collection!
We have lots of other projects on the way for 2013, but we'll tell you about them later!
