Sown from the seeds of two midlands bands, Finders Keepers, featuring Mel Galley (guitar/vocals), Dave Holland (drums) and Glenn Hughes (bass/vocals), plus the Montanas’ John Jones (vocals/trumpet) and Terry Rowley (keyboards/guitar/flute), Trapeze were discovered by 60s beat supremos The Moody Blues, and snapped up for their own label, Threshold Records.
Fast Buck were a popular classic rock band who made just one album – a self-titled effort for Jet Records in 1976. Amazingly, despite selling 40,000 copies at the time, the LP has never been reissued on CD, until now, and includes the LP’s sole single ‘Sometime Man’! The band revolved around the talents of guitarist and songwriter Ed Hamilton, who kept the band going long after they had parted company with Jet and founded their own recording studio.

Humble Pie’s “Up Our Sleeve: Official Bootleg Box Set Vol 3” is latest recorded testament to what this band did best; playing bluesy, gutsy, soulful hard rock, live on stage. Drawn from a variety of audience recordings that have previously only been available as “under the counter” pirate releases, this is an honest and raw tribute to a classic and much missed super-group on the 1970s, released in conjunction with Pie founder member and drummer, Jerry Shirley.
Finally, this album can get a proper release, and now features a second CD featuring eight bonus tracks. Also featured is newly commissioned liner-notes by Classic Rock’s Malcolm Dome based on recent interviews with Jimmy Waldo.
As well as extensive liner notes from Malcolm Dome, this expansive 9 disc set features a wealth of bonus tracks. Produced By Kevin Cronin and Gary Richrath with Paul Grupp, CD1 features “YOU CAN TUNE A PIANO BUT YOU CAN’T TUNA FISH”, which includes both long and short versions of the radio friendly ‘Roll With The Changes’, as well as a single edit for ‘Time For Me To Fly’.
Each concert demonstrates what an exciting live prospect Alcatrazz truly were, CDs One, Two & Three all feature concerts recorded in Texas in 1984. CDs Four and Five are yet another unique and useful insight into the working of this band’s early work ethic, with demos and instrumentals from the 1983 debut demonstrating many of the songs’ developments.
Produced by Bob Kulick, Jimmy Waldo and David Glen Eisley, and engineered by Pat Regan, the self-titled "Murderer's Row" CD now includes a second disc of unreleased bonus tracks of rough mixes of the entire album.
