Rhapsody Music Proclaims JPT Scare Band to be one of the 10 Essentials of Proto-metal


After years of plying their frenzied, hard-rocking, acid blues trade in near obscurity, the love and accolades keep pouring in for JPT Scare Band. Rhapsody.com, one of the world’s biggest purveyors of digital music, just proclaimed them one of the “top 10 essentials of proto-metal.” Yep. Emphatically placed among such massive talents as Blue Oyster Cult, Deep Purple, Rainbow, and Judas Priest, you’ll find Kansas City’s JPT Scare Band.

“JPT Scare Band didn't release an album until the 1990s, yet the group has been recording its burly jams since the early '70s. If you dig thunderous proto-metal from the age of bell-bottoms and thick 'staches, then you need to explore Past is Prologue. This wonderfully raw mishmash of once-forgotten demos is proto-metal heaven, particularly the 13-minute opus "Sleeping Sickness." In 2007 Classic Rock magazine tagged the JPTs as "the lost pioneers of heavy metal." That's no overstatement. These dudes slayed with the best of them: Cactus, Black Pearl, Pentagram.”

Now, hot on the heels of the world’s new found awareness of JPT Scare Band, and their fuzzed out brand of all that is heavy, upstart indie label Ripple Music has released Acid Blues is the White Man’s Burden, another molten slab of massive acid blues with monstrously heavy riffs, scorching guitar solos, and mind-bending jams. Already getting rave reviews from the press, Acid Blues is the White Man’s Burden is carrying on the charge, leading JPT Scare Band into the next decade, riding an iron-clad battleship of heavy proto-metal.

The Rock and Roll Report has proclaimed that Acid Blues is the White Man’s Burden, “sizzles with fuzzy guitars, gritty vocals, and extended jam sessions that instantly transport you to what feels like a Hendrix concert. Terry Swope has got to be one of the world's most underrated guitarists! If you miss the glory days of Cream, Deep Purple, and Jimi Hendrix, you have to check out these uncovered gems from JPT Scare Band.” Here Comes the Flood decrees that Acid Blues “holds its own against famous niche sharers, such as Cream, Ten Years After, Rory Gallagher and the mighty Led Zeppelin!” and Sonic Abuse gushes that Acid Blues is simply a “gem to treasure.”

Acid Blues is the White Man’s Burden is available from Ripple Music in two-toned, gatefold, double-LP with two bonus tracks, Deluxe digipack CD, or digital at http://www.ripple-music.com/  and all fine music sites like iTunes, Digstation, Amazon, CD Baby, and eBay.

Don’t miss out on the revival of classic acid Proto-metal and the album that the infamous Roadburn Festival has hailed as the “Album of the Day!”

The Rolling Stones Remastered Vinyl Box Sets

Hot Off the Press and Ready to Roll This November The Rolling Stones 1964-1969 & The Rolling Stones 1971-2005 Remastered Vinyl Box Sets

NEW YORK, Oct. 12 /NEWS.GNOM.ES/ — For the very first time in history the “World’s Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll Band,” ABKCO Records and Universal Music Group have joined forces to offer two vinyl box set collections spanning over 40 years of the Rolling Stones’ career. The box sets include 23 original studio albums, two “Big Hits” collections as well as two rare EPs. They will be released on November 22 in the U.K. and November 23 in the U.S. and Canada. The Rolling Stones 1964-1969 and The Rolling Stones 1971-2005 Vinyl Box Sets offer the consumer a wealth of great Rolling Stones music, much of which hasn’t been available on vinyl for a considerable period of time.

The Rolling Stones 1964-1969 Vinyl Box Set, a limited edition numbered box set collection, chronologically encompasses the Stones’ early U.K. releases. The set includes nine re-mastered Rolling Stones studio albums, two remastered EPs, plus two “Big Hits” collections. It’s the first vinyl reissue in decades for The Rolling Stones (EP), The Rolling Stones, Five by Five (EP), The Rolling Stones No. 2, Big Hits (High Tide and Green Grass) and Through the Past, Darkly (Big Hits Vol. 2).

The first five titles in the set are presented in their original mono format affording, for the first time in years, an opportunity for Stones fans to enjoy remastered versions of the tracks “I Can’t Be Satisfied,” “Time Is On My Side” (Version 2) and “Down the Road Apiece” as originally released. Through the Past, Darkly (Big Hits Vol. 2) is included with its original octagonal cover and artwork intact. Metamorphosis is also included in the set; the album was first released in 1975 but is wholly comprised of tracks recorded from the early-to-late sixties. The inclusion of the band’s original two “Big Hits” collections was mandated by the fact that U.K. album releases in that era most often did not include contemporaneously released hit singles.

The world really was the Rolling Stones’ oyster in the seventies, as their escapades made headlines around the world from the French Riviera to Switzerland and via the U.S. and Canada. They performed groundbreaking concerts in arenas and moved effortlessly into open-air stadiums. They stuck their collective tongue out at the British establishment and became citizens of the world.

They set up their own label and made the most of their new-found artistic freedom and, most importantly, they issued a series of definitive studio albums: Sticky Fingers, Exile On Main Street, Goats Head Soup, It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll, Black And Blue and Some Girls. They partied at Studio 54, came up with dance-floor hits “Miss You” and “Emotional Rescue,” and recorded in Paris, Nassau, Jamaica and New York.

The eighties saw the band stretch the envelope further still, working with jazz great Sonny Rollins, film directors Julien Temple and Michael Lindsay-Hogg, and producers Chris Kimsey and Steve Lillywhite on classics such as Emotional Rescue, Tattoo You, Undercover, Dirty Work and Steel Wheels.

Throughout the next two decades they filmed with Scorsese, recorded with Don Was and released further groundbreaking albums–Voodoo Lounge and Bridges To Babylon, right up to 2005′s triumphant A Bigger Bang.

Fans now get a chance to rediscover many of their past favorites and unearth some forgotten gems along the way too …all re-mastered and sounding better than ever.

The two volumes, a compendium of the band’s U.K.-released studio recordings, will be marketed jointly by ABKCO and UMG and span the band’s output from the dawn of their recording career in early 1964 with the release of their debut LP The Rolling Stones, through to A Bigger Bang, originally released in 2005. Pressings in The Rolling Stones 1964-1969 and The Rolling Stones 1971-2005 Vinyl Box Sets are 180-gram virgin heavyweight vinyl and are part of the much lauded Back-to-Black classic vinyl reissue series.

Jody Klein, ABKCO Music and Records CEO, remarked, “With the current marketplace resurgence of vinyl, these collections are certain to delight both long-standing Stones fans as well as contemporary vinyl devotees. The quality of the pressings and the care with which these historic releases have been remastered is breathtaking.”

“We are honored to continue our campaign to preserve the Stones legacy with the highest quality sets for fans to enjoy,” added Bruce Resnikoff, President/CEO, Universal Music Enterprises (UMe).

Andrew Kronfeld, Universal Music Group International’s Executive VP, International Marketing, said, “Vinyl was the Rolling Stones’ accomplice from day one, so this is the way to hear the world’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll band. There’s nothing else to say… just listen.”

Steinway & Sons Announces New Record Label

LONG ISLAND CITY, N.Y., Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Steinway & Sons today announced the launch of its new Steinway & Sons record label. The first release on this label, Bach On A Steinway, debuted last week at #3 on the Billboard Traditional Classical Album Chart.

Bach On A Steinway features keyboard masterworks by J. S. Bach as performed by virtuoso pianist Jeffrey Biegel, whose extensive embellishments and ornaments in a Baroque style give the recording a unique flavor. The album was produced by 15-time Grammy® winner Steven Epstein.

"Biegel is a sensitive and imaginative interpreter who brings this music to life," writes Jed Distler of ClassicsToday.com. "This auspicious and superbly engineered debut bodes well for the success of this new label."

Until corrective surgery at the age of 3, Jeffrey Biegel was unable to hear or speak. The "reverse Beethoven" phenomenon can explain Mr. Biegel's life in music, having heard only vibrations in his formative years. His electrifying technique and mesmerizing touch have garnered Mr. Biegel much critical acclaim, including high praise from Leonard Bernstein – who called him "a splendid musician and a brilliant performer."

The Steinway & Sons label will highlight stars from Steinway's Concert & Artist program performing on exceptional Steinway grand pianos. Each of the planned four releases per year will feature a repertoire with broad appeal.

"The opportunity to bring the talents of Steinway Artists to the public through new recordings, impeccably produced and engineered, has always been an exciting concept for us at Steinway & Sons," said Ron Losby, President, Steinway & Sons – Americas. "We are thrilled with the early success of this new venture."
