BIG UPDATE – ALBUM RELEASE INFORMATION
They were ready for pick up TODAY… so, I went and got the test pressings from Third Man Pressing of the two record set.
They sound AMAZING!
Here are a few pics:
Now, you might be asking “WHEN DOES IT COME OUT and WHEN DO I GET MY COPY?”
Here’s the news – the set has been picked up for distribution by the great Seattle reissue label Light in the Attic. If you’re not hip to them, check out their site, look at some of great stuff they have either put out or helped distribute for other labels. Of local interest, Light in the Attic reissued the two Rodriguez albums before the Oscar winning documentary “Searching for Sugarman” helped to make Detroit’s enigmatic psychedelic folk singer an international name.
The record will be released APRIL 18th! Pre-orders will start in late February.
But, there’s MORE!
Mark your calendar now – a special release show planned for FRIDAY APRIL 24th at The Magic Bag in Ferndale.
I’m super excited about the lineup for this one. I can’t giveaway all the surprises. But, the headline act will be a reunion show for the great Detroit band The Reruns. It’s the first time they have played a show in 22 years!
But, don’t worry – The Reruns are far from rusty. The core of band is best known as the much loved Detroit polka-rock legends The Polish Muslims.

More information about the show will be coming at your over the next few weeks. SEE YOU THERE!
More archive materials – flyers, photos, and other updates – will be up over the next few weeks. I’ll share another update when that happens.
Until then, I hope 2020 is treating you well!
