Back in February 2015, THE DEAD DAISIES got the chance to play some rock'n'roll in Cuba and it proved a revelation. The revelation became a revolution as the boys started conceiving their next album. The passion they'd experienced in Cuba was confirmation — the world needs to be reminded that classic rock is alive and kicking — and with the new album, THE DEAD DAISIES were going to deliver just that, a collection of classic rock, "Revolución".
THE DEAD DAISIES had an unbelievable last year. From the moment they dropped their first single “Long Way To Go” ahead of their European Festival Summer in June, the hits just kept on coming. The 2nd single and title track “Make Some Noise” ramped up the release of the third studio album for the band in August at which point they were well underway touring the USA with KISS, a tour that finished with a sold-out headline show at LA’s prestigious “Whisky A Go-Go”. “Song and a prayer”, released as a single with an accompanying short-film, refocused attention and rang in the final, massive touring phase of the year which saw the band go to Japan for the first time, where they immediately became media and fan darlings and went down a storm at the world-famous “Loud Park”-festival.
Universal's '2 For 1' series, compiling the albums 'Blues Dimension' (1968) and 'B.D. Is Dead, Long Live B.D.' (1969). The band was formed in Zwolle, Overijssel (The Netherlands) in 1966 by Leen Ripke. It was one of the first Dutch groups playing blues and rhythm & blues with horns. They were also one of the few bands in the 1960's that had a respectable three albums out! The band was troubled by the fact that another local band, the more popular Cuby & The Blizzards consequently stole musicians from Blues Dimension. Their biggest hit 'Get Ready' was a cover from Rare Earth. In 1969, the group's breakup was announced in the title of their last album.
Fine, energetic show on the day of Bill Kreutzman's 43rd birthday! Highlights include killer version of "Foolish Heart and a mighty "Other One". Broadcast by KZSU-FM and remastered for pristine audio quality.
Having scored the movies Heartbreakers and Tonight's The Night before, in 1988 TD composed the music for a third film of director Bobby Roth - Dead Solid Perfect, starring Randy Quaid. A lot of material is sequencered rhythms. Several tracks are variations of melodies so it does tend to get a little monotonous with the repetition. The music is a pleasure to hear. Without Silva Screen's efforts, more than likely this music would never have been released. It would have only been heard through your TV where it was buried in the soundtrack…
Bill Graham rides in on a giant mushroom. Etta James and Tower of Power Horns featured as well as the mercurial John Cipollina on "Not Fade Away", "Deal" and "Sunshine Daydream".
