Camarillo, CA - Marshall Blonstein’s Audio Fidelity and Jesse Colin Young of Pigfoot Music LLC are pleased to announce a distribution agreement to release 180g vinyl and DVD recordings from the critically acclaimed artist’s highly regarded catalog. While lead singer of The Youngbloods his legendary rock band took the nation by storm when their single Get Together became a worldwide Top 10 hit and a prominent soundtrack for peace.

After seven albums with the group, Young released more than 15 celebrated solo albums including Song for Juli a work many critics agree is his solo masterpiece. This popular album will be the initial Pigfoot Music release to be distributed by Audio Fidelity beginning in April. Following 1971’s Song for Juli four more albums charted over the next three years, Light Shine in 1974, Songbird and On the Road in 1975 and Love on the Wing in 1976. Each of those solo albums contained breakthrough tracks from country fusion to jazz fusion to blues rock that received airplay on radio stations across America.

Jesse's musical accomplishments are many, including performing with Led Zeppelin, The Grateful Dead and Janis Joplin in 1969; touring with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young in the summer of 1974; from walking off the Johnny Carson show, to singing for Native American rights. Get Together has been heard from the 13X-multi-platinum Forrest Gump soundtrack in 1994 to the widely seen Luv's commercial in 2010. Darkness Darkness, written by Jesse, was the theme song for the James Cameron movie Ghosts of the Abyss in 2003. A cover of the song by Robert Plant won the Grammy for Best Rock Vocal in 2003 and remains a popular cover song for many bands.

The Queens, NY native recorded his first album, The Soul of a City Boy while living in the Greenwich Village in 1964. He recorded a second album, Young Blood, featuring supporting musicians, including John Sebastian and Peter Childs. After the two solo albums, he then formed The Youngbloods which included guitarist Jerry Corbitt, whom he met on the New York to Boston club circuit, and keyboardist/guitarist Lowell "Banana" Levinger, and drummer Joe Bauer. Get Together appeared on their 1967 debut album and re-released as a single in 1969, after the heartfelt refrain of "Come on people now, smile on your brother" was used as the television theme for the National Council of Christians and Jews.

During the 1970's, Jesse helped establish the "No Nukes" movement. Involved from the very beginning, he closed the 1979 "No Nukes" concert and movie singing the iconic Youngblood's anthem Get Together, joined by legends Jackson Browne, Stephen Stills, and Graham Nash.

New Age Instrumental Review: Anaya Music-AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music)

Release Date: February 2, 2018 Label: Anaya Music Website
Around this time a year ago I had the experience of listening to Anaya Music and providing coverage of Eternity.  It was an uplifting experience and a memorable listen as I recall.
Now with February drawing closer AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music) will arrive.
Once again, the recording features several exceptional collaborations between Anaya Music and a live virtual symphony orchestra recorded in the heart of Prague, the capital of the Czech republic. The orchestra combines members of the finest ensembles in Prague, including the Czech Philharmonic.
I think they should rename the orchestra to “The Live Spiritual Orchestra.” If you have been exposed to Anaya Music you will understand what that means. If this is your first journey with this music you will find out very quickly. Either way, this is spiritually uplifting music that leaves a smile on your soul. It’s like the term digital footprint, there is an everlasting m…

British Post-Punk Veterans 1919 Return With A Brand New Masterpiece Of Darkly Melodic Goth Rock, FUTURECIDE!

Los Angeles, CA - Like the mythic phoenix rising from the ashes, British post-punk band 1919 have gone through Hell and back over the course of their harrowing career, but they keep returning stronger than ever! Founded in 1980, the band released its debut album Machine in 1983 and one EP a year later before calling it quits. However, the band reformed in 2014 to great acclaim, performing numerous tours and at festivals across Europe. Then, tragedy struck as the band’s founding guitarist Mark Tighe was diagnosed with cancer in 2016 and succumbed to the disease in January 2017. Tighe insisted that the band should carry on without him, which they have done in finest form with their newest effort Futurecide. The album, which will be officially released on April 12 via Cleopatra Records, features brand new compositions and includes special guest performances by Tighe as well as former member Steve Madden, who also passed away this year. The first single, “Anxiety,” was released at the en…

Concert Review: Ghost At The Palace Theater Albany NY

Ghost At The Palace Theater Albany NY December 13, 2018

With winter upon us in the great Northeast, it was just another night. We never have a reason to stay in because of the weather, we just go. It so happened that it was a nice evening for a drive to a Ghost concert.We secured our tickets months ago and have been anticipating this night for months on end.
Last July I attended a “bucket list” concert, the great Iron Maiden was coming to Mansfield, MA. Opening for them was Ghost. This was a turn of a friendly card for the band, a great way to get worldwide exposure otherwise not afforded by a lesser band. They were already on the rise and the lead singer Papa Emeritus had a helluva a band (no pun intended there). At that time my prediction was that when the new year began Ghost would be headlining their own shows. So, then it happened, here we are tonight watching this incredible metal band headlining their own show, with no opener may I add.
For those of you unf…
